Yesterday I was planning to kill myself. I didn’t know how i would do it, but i had 60 strong painkillers, a razor blade and a rope, i’m sure i could manage something.
I was crying in class, because as you can guess I wasn’t in the best mood, and one of my very close friends came up to me, she asked what was wrong, I told her, she told me I was an amazing person, told me I was more than good enough, and gave me a massive hug.
For the first time in my life I felt like someone genuinely cared about me, I broke down and cried for the rest of the day, but that one hug helped me so much, her telling me I was good enough and the feeling of being hugged made me so much happier inside.
My parents badly emotionally abused me and i’ve never really had anyone hug me and make me feel cared about. The feeling that someone genuinely cared about me made a massive difference.
If she didn’t give me that hug or comfort me, I would have went home that night and ended my life.
One hug LITERALLY saved my life… I’m so f**king thankful that person is in my life.
