To quote the song by Justin Bieber, “Even in the midst of doubt, life is worth living.”
(Post Updated 22/04/19)
This is a song I’ve been listening to a lot lately, thinking about how far I’ve come and how difficult “working on a better me” really is.
Today marks two years since trying to commit suicide. Weirdly enough, I now celebrate this day because I feel so blessed to be alive because life is truly worth living. With God on my side, family and friends backing me, little by little, I’m gaining more confidence.
I believe that we all go through things for certain reasons: sometimes to test your character, sometimes to create character, sometimes to build you up and sometimes to break down the walls in life that were getting in the way of your potential, your future, and your truth.
If I didn’t go through what I went through, I guess I’d still be under the impression (please don’t stone me for this because before it happened to me I didn’t really understand it) that depression and suicide were merely attention seeking. I soon learned that it wasn’t the case.
It sounds beyond bizarre to say but I am grateful for that darkest time in my life because it’s created the young man I am today. I’m not even close to being perfect but I’m getting closer to being the best version of myself.
Life is Worth Living!
