Wishing, Wanting, but Cannot Having

Sometimes life throws you things you wouldn't expect. Most people wouldn't expect to have an anorexic cousin, two friends cutting themselves, and one friend try to committ suicide.
Most people shun these types of people, but i embrace them because that is the only way to save them. I've dealt with so many demons in this past year that i too, had once considered suicide but ruled it out automatically because i want to discover what this life has to offer.
My friends who have tried to committ suicide or cut themselves to take away the pain for only a little while, or the ones who starve themselves to make them feel equal to their peers know that they always have me.
Im the one they can come to when they need a shoulder to cry on or someone to talk to because no one else seems to get them.
We need to protect these people because they are humans also. They need love, just like the rest of us, to survive in this world.
Instead they are pushed aside, because to others, they are flaws

I would like you all to know that i have and probably will again deal with this but all the people in this have gotten help and are on their way to recovery. I love every single one of them unconditionally.

this is so true its almost like anything thats not "normal" is pushed aside.....when all thats needed is a hug and a bar of chocolate or just someone to cry with you. i think its tragic that this world doesn't acknowlege that peoples differences make them stronger

Yeah, it is hard. But at least that you're giving them the comfort that they need, when they get out of the messes that they're in I'm sure that they'll remember everything you did for them, and they'll pay you back for it. I'm going to be an author also too, so I'll check out your work also and you can check out mine if you want! Haha.
