How to save a life.
Step 6.

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

This next month is going to require more strength than I have ever had. I face so many horrible anniversaries and know I will have to dig deep to fight through. It will be 7 years since I lost my grandma, 6 years since I lost a close friend, 3 years since I lost another close friend, 2 years since I lost two close friends, and the first anniversary of my assault will occur on the 21st.

I hate this month, I really do. Every year I seem to face some sort of horrible event and I feel as if I should just lock myself inside and never face the outside world. Just from the fear that something else bad will happen. I don't know what I did to deserve this April curse but I am hoping that by keeping my head up I will finally end this bad streak of events.

If you are struggling this month as well, do me a favor and fight as hard as you can. Seeing the strength within someone else is the motivation I need and the best form of support out there. Let's find strength together.
