    You. Yes, you. I am writing this for you.

    I know you are reading this. And I want you to know I am writing this for you. No one else will understand. No one else knows. They think that this is for them. But it’s not. I am writing this for you.

    I want you to know, life…it’s hard. Every day can be a challenge. It can be a challenge to get up in the morning. To get yourself out of bed. To put on that smile. But I want you to know, that smile is what keeps me going some days. You need to remember, even through the tough times, you are amazing. You really are.

    You should be happy. You are gorgeous.

    I know that the weather might not be perfect. You might have to turn your back to the wind or feel the cold nipping at your nose. But you know what, at least you are there to feel it. At least you can enjoy the sun’s warm rays on your face. Or that cold February wind biting at your cheeks. You know what that means?

    You are alive.

    Everything will be okay.

      Literally every part of this applies to me. This is exactly what I needed in my life, I am going through some really tough times, the weather is bitter (I’m in Idaho) and it is February. I put on that fake smile every single day. Every morning when I wake up I just want to sleep because that is the only time I feel truly happy. Thank you so much! This was made exactly for me. Thanks again. God works in mysterious ways.

      This is so amazing and ironic because my best friend and I had a heart to heart last night and he said this to me over and over again. I just about want to cry about this, makes my day!

      A woman once told me she wrote this for me. I don’t possibly believe it. I wish I could.

      I hope this never leaves the Today’s Most Read column. Because it’s gonna be a lot harder for me to find when it does.

      I found this last time I was on this site, maybe a year and a half ago. Glad to see it’s still popular.

      I’m sorry.
      I took advantage of you when i had you. Now that youre gone, i hate myself for not holding on tighter. I shouldve told you everyday i loved you more than the last. I do love you, but my rude actions spoke louder.
      Death is a strange thing. No one really expects it or prepares for it until it strikes. Then it leaves me sitting here, difficult to breathe

      You dumped me like those two brothers.

      Maybe I should call Lyndon and apologize.

      I think he would understand.

      Maybe a Paris Peace Accord would benefit all of us.
      In hindsight, if the rules were clear in the beginning,
      a lot of heartache could have been avoided.

      No one reacts well to a surprise attack.
      I think I now understand the history lesson.

      I know you wrote this for yourself! But I am also glad that you are still alive and still here even tho after these last few years it still hasn’t been easy for you. And if you ever get those thoughts that almost took you from me then, just come here and look at all the people you may have inspired and saved, & always remember “I WILL NOT LOSE YOU”

    31. Please reach out
      October 28, 2015 at 9:28 am

      As I cannot because I feel too stupid. I came here to find myself. But I’m so gone and I truly don’t think I’ll make it out alive. I want to. I really want to. Please reach out.
