you're going through something tough and i'm sorry.
no, i don't know what you're going through and no, i don't know you... but that doesn't matter. i want you to stick around so that you can continue to be the beautiful you you're meant to be. it gets better, despite your fears and this weight will be lifted, whether it hit you like a ton of bricks or whether you've been carrying the world on your shoulders your entire life.
while i don't know your struggle, i know what it feels like to think that maybe the world would be better without you. the pain of thinking your loved ones wouldn't care about your absence is the scariest, most hurtful thing you can put yourself through. don't debase yourself. don't devalue yourself. don't stop loving who you are and who you're meant to be.
from time to time, i stumble on profiles that suddenly go inactive - people who stop commenting, hearting, or creating records. and i'm sure most of them move onto other things, taking a hiatus for a few weeks or months or maybe something more permanent. in fact, in the back of my head, i hope that's what's happened. i'd much rather say goodbye to a hitrecorder than lose one.
maybe your friends aren't really your friends and maybe your family is shit. but when you go rogue, i care. some 25-year old girl from colorado who you have never met is hoping you've been hired by some huge record company, publisher, or animation studio and that you disappeared because you were following your dreams and you made it big.
you have an entire community who does. life isn't always easy... but it gets better. you can't make it big in this world if you're not in it.
so when you feel sad or like your world would be better without you - know that our community is a family. know that we care about where you come from and where you're going... and know that the world is much larger and stranger than you have been lead to believe. stick around for it. there are hidden treasures in familiar shadows. find the courage to explore it. you have sparks of divinity. and your imperfections are the diamond of your being. never forget it.
it gets better. i promise it does.
