    Yo. I feel ya. I know you’re hurting, man. Don’t do it. Don’t consider it. I know (believe me, I know) what it’s like to feel like there’s never gonna be a way out. It’s like you just don’t care. It’s like a new day starts, everyone is waking up and talking about how wonderful the weather is or how crappy the economy is and you just don’t care. It doesn’t matter, right?
    Nah, man. It matters.
    Look, I don’t know you from Adam, but you’ve got something. You got a mind that works, a heart that beats, and lungs that breathe. At one of my lowest moments, I remember sitting still and just feeling my heartbeat. That was it. It reminded me that no matter how hard it gets, no matter how alone I feel, no matter how dark my life is, I’ve got a chance. It might take twenty years, maybe more, for that chance to come to fruition, but like… I’ve gotta give it something.
    Give yourself a chance to heal. I know getting help sounds stupid and useless and kinda like just another person to nag at you, but like… it’s something, y’know?
    You matter. I don’t know you, of course, but keep in mind that you don’t know me either. You don’t know what I’ve gone through or who I am. So when I say you matter, I want you to trust me on blind faith that I know without a shadow of a doubt that you are something special, that you are unique in this world, and that you are wanted here. You’ve got a lot going for you. Don’t give up just yet.

    I don’t know you and you don’t know me, but I am here for you!! Please don’t end your life and I know it gets hard and it feels terrible to wake up and just feel too tired to do anything or to feel like anything you do right now isn’t worth it. It’s summer! Go outside, there is light in this world and there are people who care about you. Your life is important.
