You told me to never let you go and I intend to keep my word. And lately, I’m holding so tightly but I don’t know what I’m grasping. I miss you more than you can ever imagine.

I tried to find myself, but I don’t know if I’m dead or lonely.
I don’t know if I’m sad or lost.

Mental Health Awareness Week from October 5-11

Even mermaids can have a mental illness, for a mermaid has no tears and therefore suffers so much more.

I’m that one person out of every five who has an invisible illness. I’m a suicide survivor. These are two reasons why I chose to per-sue Counseling Psychology in college. It’s also why I wanted to become a mermaid; not just to make myself happy, but to make others happy as well. Help raise awareness for mental illness by sharing this post.

Know that you are not alone.

“Because sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your saliva seals the envelope, your scent graces the paper. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox; their world. Your letter is then carried inside as an invited guest. The paper that was sitting on your desk, now sits on another’s. The recipient handles the paper that you handled. Letters create a connection that modern and impersonal forms of communication will never replace.”
