I joined WordPress today to start a blog. I was looking for some of my friends that may be on here so that I could support them by following their blogs. I found one friend and started following her blog. As I started to read more of her posts I became alarmed and scared for her. She seemed so unhappy, hopeless and on the verge of giving up. She talked of cutting and suicide and how she didn’t have any ‘real’ friends. I was obviously worried about her so I contacted her and told her that I was here to talk to. To tell her that the only permanent thing in life, is death. That nothing in this life is worth throwing it all away for, because things will always get better. We messaged back and forth for a bit and it was nice to talk to her after several years. I came back to my blog to find out she blocked me from viewing hers any longer. She said in one of her earliest posts that it didn’t matter what she wrote there because nobody would see it, or maybe they would. I saw her words as a call for help. I offered my friendship and shoulder for her anytime she wanted to talk. I hope she takes it. I can’t check up on her now through her blog, but I will check up on her elsewhere.
Everybody needs somebody to confide in. Somebody to lean on when times get tough. Someone to help ease our pain at times. I’m lucky that I have that Someone. I hope she will allow me to be hers.
