You don't know who I am, where I live, and what my past is. Just know that I am here with you and I will always be here to listen. The best way to get out of that endless pit of self-hate, sadness, painful memories, and cycle of self destruction is by talking about it.
If you are lucky enough to have someone in person who you trust, take a leap of faith and talk to them about what you're feeling. Trust me, if they are the right friend or partner for you, they will listen. If they don't, they are toxic and you need to get the hell away from them.
If you don't have anyone you can trust to talk to, talk here. We will listen to you, and although we might not have the same exact experiences, sadness and pain is universal. The best treatment for it is by talking about it and making the conscious decision to overcome it.
You CAN overcome it, and you WILL overcome it.
Give yourself more credit. You are strong. You are beautiful. You are handsome. You are important.
I will be your friend/mother/sister.
Let's heal together.
