Two years ago I almost died.
Two years ago I was in a foreign city, ready to die. I’ve been suicidal for years before that, and I attempted suicide too many times I can remember, but that day was different.
I’m going to spare you the details, but that day I was going to die for real.
Long story short, I was sitting in a hotel lobby, and this man walked up to me, not believing me that I’m fine.
He and his friends talked to me for a bit, and it saved my life.
If it wasn’t for these men talking to me, I would not be sitting here today.
That day was the first step into the direction of becoming the person I am today and the person i want to be.
So this is a thank you to all the people out there who see strangers struggling and who take action and talk to them.
Everyone who ever walked up to someone asking them if they are okay and stayed even if they said they were fine.
Thank you to everyone who took the time out of their day to be there for a friend or someone who just needed someone to be with them.
I’m thankful that these four men took the time that they didn’t have to grab me by the hand and talk to me. I’m so grateful that they didn’t believe my “I’m okay” when I obviously needed help.
Please, don’t look away when someone is struggling. You never know what’s going on inside of them or what they are planning to do…
