Staying on the Upside: Reasons to Keep Living

How tragic… you don’t want to be around anymore? It hurts my soul to know this.

I don’t have a lot of wisdom, but one thing that I do know– we all want you here.

  • Your pain is a learning experience to help you grow, know what you don’t want in life and make a move to change your circumstances in a proactive manner… not lead you six-feet-under.
  • It’s terrible to be the “poster child” for “Down-and-Out“, but someone’s gotta do it; Realize that your current… temporary turmoil has the potential of transforming you into an anchor for others who need comfort; Wouldn’t life seem so much more tolerable if you had someone to turn to… someone* who really understood and cared enough to help guide you away from despair? {*Take note: I’m not a professional counselor (though seeking one is highly recommended†), but my blog, here, is a way for me to reach out and let you know that you’re not alone and have this someone as a cyber-ally.}
  • Don’t give your naysayers the satisfaction of seeing you crumble; It’s unfortunate, but true… many people out there do not have your best interest at heart. As the old proverb goes, “Misery loves company.” They just might be waiting for your demise to have something to talk about, making themselves feel better because you couldn’t handle the tough time. DON’T LET THOSE BITCHES WIN!
  • Your presence in other people’s lives is far more important than you’ve been made aware; Being that person who’s been there, able to spread empathy and tenderness to other people, creates community, understanding and hope.
  • Your absence from the world would have a devastating impact on others… more than you know; It’s simple– YOU ARE LOVED. Let the inner-glow of those who truly care about your well-being guide you out of that scary place.

“Darkness cannot  drive out darkness… only light can do that.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

Your light is just over the horizon. Stick around and enjoy the view…
