Day 7 of 365
© Nicole Peterson
In light of a recent note I received from a fellow DeviantArt user
that took her own life, I wanted to shoot this photo.
The photo itself is not good, nor beautiful, it is only my truth.
She was only 16 years old. So young, with so much time left.
I have lost friends and loved ones to suicide in the past and it
hurts a great deal to see my fellow human beings resort to this.
To the ones who think you're alone, to the ones who think
you're backed into a corner and can never get out, to the ones
that feel lost, or ugly or worthless... do not worry, that feeling
will not last forever. You do
have the power to
change your situation, to make the choice to keep moving
forward towards something better. The path might be covered
in thorns or bottomless pits, but you have to fight to stay on
your path. Life is by no means "easy", but hell... it can be
beautiful. And if you fight to keep moving forward, you
will see that beauty. So, Keep going my friends, because I swear
to you, it can get better.
