I Would Give Anything.

Okay so today is World Suicide Prevention Day. The entire month of September is dedicated to raising awareness and hope for the ones who feel as if they have none. I’m going to share something extremely personal and close to my heart; I feel as if my purpose in life now is to tell my story, my Brother’s story and maybe, just maybe something will change or someone will be saved. 
In April of 2016 I lost my bestfriend, my comedian, my heart, my little Brother. You never think suicide will effect you or your loved ones in any way, at least I didn’t.  In no universe did I ever think I would ever be living life without him. He was only 15 years old and he lit up my life everyday. Seth was a shining light in this world filled with darkness. There are no words to describe the emptiness I feel without him here. This post is not to discourage or bring anyone down. I just want anyone who hurts this way to know that you are not alone. No matter how hopeless or alone you feel,  someone out there is fighting for you;  I’M FIGHTING FOR YOU. There are no excuses that should be made for bullies or mental health issues. Mental health issues are real!  Mental health is just as important,  if not more,  as physical health. 

No one wants to talk about suicide. It’s such a sensitive topic and I understand that. But if we do not talk about it,  how will there be justice for the loved ones we’ve lost?  How will we save others? I never want any families or friends to lose the light on their lives to suicide. It is so heartbreaking,  I can not begin to describe how it feels even today. You still have to continue with your life after any kind of loss, even when you just want to break down. The world still turns and people will say or do things to remind you of what happened,  but it isn’t their fault, they do not know what you’re going through. 

I am in no way a pro writer or speaker but I do know that I should speak up and talk about what happened. Not only should I speak up for my brother,  I should speak up for everyone who has felt that there was no better way. I should speak up for the broken and so have felt forgotten. Please reach out,  please speak up and raise awareness. There’s still so much to be done and said. I know that if someone asked me,”What would you give to have your brother here today? “, I would give ANYTHING💛
“You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing.” E.B. White 

I loved you then,  I love you now,  I love you always. Rest in the sweetest peace little Brother.

Thank You

SO I am currently home in my comfy bed (FINALLY)! I absolutely enjoyed my mini vacation and I am so blessed to have had such an new, amazing experience. As I said in my previous post A Day In The Life: Beach Edition, I find beauty in the smaller things in life. My boyfriend and I rode around on the island on our bikes yesterday and I loved the scenery! This trip was so important for me, as I am still grieving for my brother. I try to not dwell on negativity or try to bring you guys down so before I get into this further I just want to let you guys know that! As I was saying, this trip was very much needed for me. Any of you that have lost a loved one may know the feeling that I’m trying to hard to explain, lol. Obviously I will always, ALWAYS miss my brother and I will forever love him but for me to process his death, I had to realize that he would not want me to be sad and down. Yes, I have my moments and days where I just can not get past the negative parts but the peace I eventually feel over powers that. So if you are going through anything like this, if you can, take a little vacation. It will let you focus on the positive thoughts and really block out the negative. I am just so so thankful to have the memories and years I had with him. This trip really opened my eyes so much and without realizing it, I got more peace from it. I came home and just felt to relieved and overall thankful for just life. I got to thinking about the support I’ve received from you guys and how lucky I am to be able to help others in any way I can. For a while after his death I was so iffy about talking to others about suicide or mental health and now I understand why. It is such a sensitive subject and again not trying to bring you guys down! I am still so protective over him and others that have similar troubles. A lot of people are so afraid of speaking out, in fear of what others will think and for the sake of their privacy. In no way am I asking for attention, I just want others to be educated and know the huge impact it could have if we actually speak out about it. This world is not perfect, no matter how much we might all want it to be; if it were, we would all have love and be rich, haha. Life is hard sometimes and this trip really just got to me and I said Thank You just so much to God and just for my life. So Thank You guys SO much for the support and Thank You for reading, even though it was a bit of a rant, lol!

For The Brighter Days Ahead…
