Depression tells you one thing.
Anxiety does as well. And the scars, made from self harm.

It's a getaway from pain. But that getaway is permanent. And depression tells you that's okay.
It's not okay. It's not okay to end your life. It's not your time. It's your time to keep living. To keep going on. It gets better. You get better. And those broken pieces lying on the floor will be put back together. But more beautiful than you could ever imagine.
I know you've heard this before... It's always darkest before the dawn. It's true. Wait it out. I know you're tired of being patient and you're weary, but i promise you it will have been worth it.
