    Mental. Physical. Emotional.

    You name it, I've probably felt it or been through it. I've loved. I've lost. I've seen death first hand. I've been hurt by people who were suppose to love me. **** happens. But I am still here.

    It's okay, everyone feels this way at one point.

    Don't end your life or cut because of something. There's a lot more to live and eventually it will get better. And it's okay to be afraid and feel pain.

    Pain Has But One Acquaintance By Emily Dickinson

    Pain has but one Acquaintance And that is Death -- Each one unto the other Society enough. Pain is the Junior Party By just a Second's right -- Death tenderly assists Him And then absconds from Sight.

    My mom died 6 months ago

    and I'm still struggling with it. My dad died 5 years ago, my son died 7 years ago, my sister died 9 years ago. While I know it gets easier with time, my mom's recent death has brought it all back for me, I feel like I'm grieving for all of them all over again. This sucks.
