“What’s more deadly, a gun or a thought?
A gun gives you the opportunity,
but a thought pulls the trigger.”
It’s scary, that some people think that the only way out is through death. And we’ve all had invasive thoughts, that get in your head. Sometimes you can’t brush off the words that people have said, they get stuck. And the more times that you repeat something, the truer it seems. I don’t think people truly understand that the way they think about themselves can be deadly. Imagine if someone said that to your friend? “You’re worthless.” “So stupid.” “Can’t you do anything right?” “You’re not good enough.” “Why can’t you be better looking.” Can you see how that could destroy a person? And the worst part is, we do it to ourselves. “You could’ve done that better.” It’s absolutely horrible.
Sorry, it’s just, people never seem to realize the beauty in themselves, but only the bad things. And I want to try and change that.
