My Message To Those Who Feel Like Giving Up.
To Whom It May Concern,
I say this to you - before you make that irreversible decision, you are irreplaceable and I know that what you are feeling right now and it feels like it will never end, it will never pass, I know how much you doubt your importance to this world and your importance to yourself. I have been below the surface and reached the core of rock bottom; I have seen the depth of despair and hopelessness and held it by its hand like a mother trying to keep her child safe. I know the burn of loss and rejection and feeling like the most unloved human who is so deserving of forever, someone who has served this world with kindness and a gentle touch of compassion and often times was ripped apart for being so dam good, being so dam bright, being so dam generous. I know what giving up feels like; I’ve tasted that sweet poison more often than most know.
If I could say anything to you I would tell you don't settle, don't accept that this is it and that there is no hope for life to get better, and don’t ever believe for one second that these things are happening as punishment. If I could say anything, anything that will get through to you, I would tell you that YOU are beautiful, genuinely and thoroughly beautiful, you are a perfect painting of love and light and laughter. If only you could see half of what I see in you, then you too would be convinced of what a rare soul you are. You are courageous, so much stronger than I, so much stronger than you believe to be. Your strength is limitless. The struggles you have overcome and emotional battles won are proof of your strength, proof of how far your love goes - proof of your courageousness. I would tell you I LOVE YOU, I love you unconditionally and I love you like I have nothing to lose and everything to gain by loving you. If you doubt for one second that this was not written for you, you are so wrong because just by reading this you are confirming that you are the soul I have in mind. I would tell you, you are special, so special and unique that your presence in this world is precious and sacred. So special that others are scared to be around you because they too know of your amazing qualities and are so threatened by you and your capabilities that they do nothing but put you down because to see you fly would mean to accept that all things are truly possible. I would tell you there is faith, I promise, I truly promise if you hold faith and let go of your fears things will change from this moment until forever. I would tell you there is so much more to this life than what you are experiencing right now. I would look so deeply into your eyes, and smile, in my eyes and in my smile you will feel the genuine warmth and love that I feel for you, there would be no question, no doubt, that I truly love and believe in you, there is nothing in this world that can rob you of your inner light, if I could give my life just so that you could truly understand just how special you are. - I would.
I just need you to stay. I need you. The world needs you. I promise if you do I will always be here for you. ~Will “Story” Rivera
