Darling I know.
I know it feels as if your whole world is falling apart. I know you feel like staying in bed all day listening to sad music and crying your eyes out, crying until there are no tears left.
I know it feels as if there isn’t a single person in the world who cares. I know you feel broken, lost, alone, confused, sad, angry, disappointed, sad, terrified, anxious.
I know you feel as if things will never get better, I know you feel as if everything is falling apart. That you’re falling apart.
I know you feel as if the world is conspiring against you. I know you feel as if everything is pointless.
And I know.
I know how it feels to wake up anxious, pass the days being anxious, and go to sleep anxious. I know how it feels.
But let me tell you something.
I also know how it feels when the pieces of your world start to come back together again.
I know how it feels to lie in bed smiling, listening to happy music, and laughing until your sides hurt.
I know that people do care. They do.
I know how it feels to feel complete, found, loved, happy, pleased, unafraid, content.
Things will get better. The pieces that fell apart can be put back together again.
The world will surprise you. Sometimes the world will go in your favour. Things will have meaning again.
I now know how it feels to wake up relatively worry free, pass days worry free and go to sleep worry free.
I know how it feels at its very worst. But I also know that things get better.
Please hold onto that.
