I like when you stop by. I like when you take your time to visit me. We don’t know each other yet. My story is an interesting one, in my mind. The fact that a single one of you stops by to read and reach out is so amazing. The ones with messages, BBB and CM, thanks for choosing to be my friend. I hope you find peace in your days. Reach out of me if you are ever in need, for real. I will try and help. We are all one species. One race. There is little difference between us, if you really think about it. We are men and women. Some are both. Some are different shades of human. Yet we all struggle with things. Not the same things, but our feelings are similar. We all hurt, we all cry, we all feel courage when we need it. We look to our heroes in times of need. We all, each of us, can stand as a beacon in the darkness. You are not alone out there. My troubles by seem trivial to some, but they are the hardest things I will ever know. Yours are just as real, just as important. Every time you cry, we are all here. There are times when I want to lay down and sleep it all away. I am tired. I don’t know if I have what it takes. I will never know unless I take that leap of faith. It’s crazy of me to pick up and go to school in CT, but it feels like the right thing to do. I have so much to learn and it seems like the best place to start. I worry constantly. Just like the rest of you. Will we make it? Who knows. But I will keep pushing, so that one day no one will know what it’s like to have OCD. One day the world won’t be so depressed. There is always hope. There is always light. Each one of us has it within. We just have to share it. One candle is nice. All of them can light up the world.
