Channing Smith - Suicide Prevention Month Submission
Depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts filled my 10 year old head, my 12 year old head, my 16 year old head and my 19 year old head.
I felt like there was no reason in me living.
I had no purpose. No one loved me.
No one cared and no one would miss me when I was gone.
Here I am, age 21, still here.
I’m not going to lie, those thoughts do haunt me and try to take me off track of where I am now, but I have a purpose. I am loved.
People do care, and the same goes for ALL of you.
YOU have a Purpose.
People love YOU.
YOU are cared for. That may be hard to remember or believe but it is so true.
