I love you. I’m proud of you. Even as you get upset with your sister. I’m proud of you. I love you. Even as you hate that you’ve eaten too much. I love you even as you hate your body. I don’t know why you do. It’s kinda more recent. Maybe transference? I love you Eliza. Whatever you do or don’t do, I love you. And am proud of you. I wish I had a magic wand.

I’ve had this reason swirling in my mind for a while. It’s not really a reason, but at the same time, it is.
This summer I was going through a particularly hard time. One day, as I was swimming in the sea, and I was getting very tired from the current, I thought to myself “What if I just stay here?

Two years. Two years sounds so long. And so short. It’s been exactly that. Two years. Since I chose to give life a go. Two years that have gone by really fast and really slowly at the same time. Continue reading “One Hundred and Thirty Five: Two Years”
I’d love you to add your reasons, or to post here. To do so please email me email@example.com
It’s nearing 2 years. Since I promised to give life a go. In the past year we have posted 130 reasons so far. Thank you Tamara, Hadas, Ricky, Dan and Sharon for posting your reasons. My goal for the 19th of October 2019 is to have 250 reason posts. Meaning a reason every 3 days or so. I can’t do that on my own and would love your help getting there. If you are happy to post a reason on my blog- be it just the once, or be it however often you want – like (bi)monthly/(bi)weekly, please be in touch!
Tomorrow needs you. YOU are important. You are necessary.
