What do you do when life isn’t so beautiful?
Do you want to know what I do?
I write. I draw. I read. I workout. I take deep breaths. I take photos.
I think you get the idea. Anything creative and good for my soul is what I normally try to stick to.
Granted I absolutely enjoy all those things and do them more than just in the dark moments, but I do them even more in those moments as well.
But what about people who haven’t found their creative outlet? Their reason for being?
I hear all these stories about bullying and the children that take their lives because of it and it just makes my heart ache. I’ve been in their shoes, I’ve been the girl on the crap end of the bullying and it’s not fun. Although at that time, the torment I went through didn’t have a classification, I just had to learn how to deal with it and I think I’m stronger now because of it. And I’m glad I turned out ok.
But what about the kids that don’t have that mentality? The ones that can’t see this isn’t all their life is going to be? That those people who are making their lives miserable day after day, are truly not worth taking their lives over? I hope there are more every day who see just how valuable they are to the world.
Be kind to someone today. It may be just what they need to keep going.
