In my life recently it hit home that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. After spending the last couple of years drifting, I was becoming further and further away from having the life I had always dreamed of. So the other day, I got a book, a blank paged book to write what I wanted to do with my life, if I had no limits. So over the last few days I have been thinking ‘what do I want to do with my life’ at 17 that is more difficult to think of than people might think. So alongside all the little things like ‘get a tattoo’ which sure I may one day regret the tattoo itself, I know I will never regret getting it. I want the things I do in my life to show that I have lived to the max, lived for myself, lived for those who never got a chance. I will carry the book around with me, adding to it all the time. I plan to write on one page what I wish to achieve, for example ‘go to university’ and then on the page next to it, I will have photos and evidence to show that I did what I wanted. I want to be able to pass my book on, to show others that anything is possible, and with enough work, they too can achieve whatever they set there mind too.
Must meet someone stupid enough to use this on, that would make my day :)
19 years old.
Died from a Suicide attempt that left her brain dead. Her parents made the hardest decision of their lives by turning off her life support.
She had a Tumblr account with over 900 posts sharing her emotional turmoil, dealings with depression, loneliness & thoughts about her wanting to take her own life.
The only response she got, was insensitive assholes, like the majority of people on Tumblr, encouraging her to do it. She was bullied consistently.
Olivia attempted to kill herself every year in May 1st since 2008.
In May 2012, her short life came to an end.
I know most people can’t tolerate posts like Olivia’s, whom find it attention seeking.
My point to you people is…
Of course it’s attention seeking what else it?! People share that part of themselves over the Internet because they obviously feel they can’t talk to anyone they know nor do they think anyone would care.
All I want is for people to cut out the bullying & talk to people like Olivia.
A conversation to someone in desperation could save their life.
If people can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
You never know…
What you say could be used to decide whether they live or die.
Guess he wasn’t crazy after all…
