"I’ve never met anybody who wasn’t important"
It scares me that a lot of people are thinking suicide is a way out. I understand things might be difficult for some, and killing oneself might sound better than the torture of having to live through whatever hell your life is. But the thing is, if you’re thinking that killing yourself won’t affect anybody because nobody else cares about you, please don’t.
Nobody is unimportant in this world. You might not hear the word “I love you” from people everyday, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t cry when you leave. That doesn’t mean that when you die, a smile will be painted on their faces instead of tears. Always remember that you were born into this world. No matter how difficult the situation and the life you were born into, you were a part of something. You were a part of your mother. You’re a piece of a whole. And think about what she would feel when you leave. She won’t ever feel whole again.
And if you’re reasoning that your mother doesn’t care about you, and you won’t take an argument that contradicts you about that, think about your other family members then. If you still think they don’t care, think about your friends. If you say you don’t have any friends that care about you, and your death won’t make an impact in anybody’s life, just think about someone else out there who’s currently thinking the same as you.
You’re feeling insignificant at the moment so you’re thinking nothing would change if you die. But think about one girl, sitting on a swing, a little girl that might be feeling as helpless as you right this very moment. You know you’re suffering, and deep down, you know you won’t wish the same torment on someone who’s as innocent and just as in need of love as you. Would you want that girl to give up too? You won’t, won’t you? You might say that, “Well, for people like us, death is a good escape since nobody cares,” but let me ask you…Instead of giving up and thinking that that girl is better off dead because nobody cares anyway, why don’t you just go and approach that girl and make her feel important? Instead of telling her to just let go and stop hoping because it won’t get better because that’s just life, why don’t you just prove to her that there’s someone out there who could very well take care of her? Deep down, you won’t wish the loneliness you’re feeling on someone else. So deep down, you know you would want to help that girl.
And you know what? The situation can also be reversed. You can be that little helpless girl. You are that girl or boy right now if you’re thinking of suicide. And just think about this…somewhere out there, someone who knows what you feel like, wouldn’t want you to feel this torture as well. Someone out there would want to help you because they know how hard it is to be alone. Someone out there will be willing to sit by you, talk to you and make you see that you are, in your own unique way, an important person and are significant to the world—that world that is inhabited by those who you care about. Someone out there could just be waiting to find a girl to help. So, mate, let them. Let them help. Let those who might know what it’s like to be alone keep you company, and in return, you give them the pleasure of your company as well. Stop thinking that nobody cares because out there, someone who’s going through the same thing as you, wouldn’t want you to feel alone as well.
Don’t give up just because you think those around you don’t care. Keep moving forward, keep walking on, and someday, you will meet people who will care about you. Someday, you will meet people whose stars will stop shining bright when you go. Someday, you will meet people whose skies won’t be as clear when you leave. Someday, you will meet people who will love you for who you are, flaws, imperfections, and uniqueness, as a whole package. And when that day comes, you will look back and realize the good kind of change that your presence brings to the world.
Never give up. Just keep moving forward. And then, everything will eventually fall into place.
