I have had moments where I have thought that life is not worth living because the pain inside of me has been so severe. I have felt trapped in a cage consisting of the walls of my own mind, but have managed to break free even from myself. It is hard, but it is possible. It is scary, but it is worth it. It is difficult, but I believe in you. Do not ever give up, because your life is always precious to the universe even if it does not feel that way to you. Do not ever give up, because even at your lowest point you are worthy of love. Do not ever give up, because even this will pass, and you will be you again.
