Never Give Up

Hello people! So yeah, it's been awhile...I am trying not to feel guilty...but I guess I have an excuse. Well, I can always come up with an excuse I guess. This last month has been so busy. We have had some changes at work with employees and with planning our gender reveal party // so excited for it!!! \\ and just regular work and home chores. Today though, I felt especially compelled to write a post.

I have been so saddened by Robin Williams' death. It hits home for me. I have been in those shoes where I was depressed. Where my anxiety was so extremely bad that I didn't know how to go on with another day. It was too hard to live. It was too hard to keep going. I have had those feelings. I have felt those things. I have had suicidal thoughts. It hurts me to know somebody out there gave up hope. Hope can change everything. Faith can change everything. God can change ANYTHING. I will always be an advocate of never giving up. I will always tell people to keep going. I suggest getting the help you need professionally and spiritually, but never giving up hope in the process. I am proof, it works. You can beat it. You can improve. It can almost not effect you at all. I did it without medicine. I am so proud of it. I just wish others would hear this side instead of the side that everybody always hears about...suicide. 

I came across this article my cousin shared on Facebook that I felt really hit on exactly how I felt about suicide. Matt Walsh wrote it, and I know there are people out there who don't agree, I know there are people out there who have other opinions, which are all valid, because everybody can have their own opinion but this is my opinion. My opinion is backed up with proof of myself, that there is a choice. I chose. I chose to keep living, to not give up, and to get more help. I did...and look at me now. There are all different "cases" of depression, anxiety, and psychological disorders, but do we really think God can't heal ANYTHING!?! He can make blind people see, He can make the crippled walk again. Why can't he heal the worst psychological disorders and make them no longer exist? 

I don't believe in giving up, loosing hope, or losing faith. I believe it's a choice to help yourself. Everybody, family, friends, neighbors, God, can only do so much if you aren't willing to accept the problem and want to change.

Obviously, Robin Williams wanted to change. He tried. He has gone to rehab, and facilities to help his issues, he was trying, but he gave up. There was no need to give up, because it could of gotten better. Now, his family, his kids, his wife, have to deal with the sadness and the depression that comes with loosing a loved one, especially by suicide. He was a great man, he was hilarious, he was knowledgeable. What really sticks out to me about who he was, was it seemed like even though he played comical roles, there were still deep meaning in words he said. Every movie has a profound quote that we can apply to life. He gave other people tools to succeed, and to believe. 

"No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world." -Robin Williams

There are other views on this subject, but what is stopping mine from changing the world, or saving a life? 

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
- Ian Maclaren

Remember:

Never. Give. Up.
Hope. Can. Change. Everything.
There's. Hope. In. Front. Of. Me.
No. Man. Is. An. Island.
You. Are. Not. Alone.
You. Are. Always. Right. Beside. Me.
