I miss falling asleep effortlessly. I miss waking up and not feeling a hint of dread or weariness. I miss swing sets and lunch boxes. I miss looking at the clock and not worrying about deadlines. I miss how my ABC’s weren’t about how well I write my essays or if I know the difference between an isotope or an isomer. I miss buying clothes without thinking about how I will be perceived when I wear them. I miss playdates and Kodak pictures. I miss parts of the old me. I miss snippets of the past.
Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.
A year ago we stayed up till 3 am talking
And today I don’t know how to even say hey
Whenever you’re going through a bad day just remember, your track record for getting through bad days, so far, is 100%; and that’s pretty damn good.
I was the one who loved you even when you gave me thousands of reasons not to.

Our bodies are apt to be our autobiographies.
Do you ever just really want to die, and you can’t think of one reason to live, and you feel like there’s no solution to your problems, but then you start thinking of all the things you won’t get to do and what you will miss if you do die? Exploring the world, creating a family, holding your first child’s hand, meeting new people, creating relationships with those people, developing into a better person, reading new books, taking pictures of that beautiful sunset on the beach; those simple things that seem so unimportant right now will be the things you would miss most about being alive. Use them to get you through the tough obstacles of life. Think about the times you have been happy. If you choose to kill yourself today, you will never get to experience that happiness again. Think about 10 years from now when you will have a family. If you die today, there will be no family. Nothing would be the same without you. Nothing.
Do not end the chances of life getting better; I promise it is worth the fight.
