So see these two beautiful girls? Well the one on the left is Shelbie, and the one on the right is Andy. I have a story for you guys about these two girls. They are actually very similar, besides being beautiful. They were both kind people, caring and sweet. Both loved taking care of animals. Both went to my High School, City Academy. I knew them both, because we only had about 150 kids at our school. They both deserved a lot of love. The biggest similarity about them is that they both took their lives. Shelbie took her life this May 14th, 2013. Andy took her own life in January on the 22nd 2011.
I bring this up because I loved them both even if I didn’t know them as well as everyone else. Andy’s death was hard, and I still think of her everyday and how I wish something could of been done so she didn’t feel so alone. Shelbie and I talked all the time on the internet after she left high school, and we had planned to hang out over the summer to talk about animals and how she was doing. I’ve been crying since I found out, and it’s all because she didn’t deserve to leave us. Neither did Andy, and I cried for her too.
The reason I’ve decided to post this is because
I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT IF THEY TOOK THEIR LIFE, IT WOULD FUCKING MATTER.
I don’t care if you think that nobody loves you, or that if you took your own life it wouldn’t matter because YOU ARE WRONG. People care about you, even the people who barely talk to you in real life. I rarely talked with Andy, but when she died it hurt, I miss her still. I went to her funeral and saw how many people loved her and cared, and wished it wasn’t her that died. I’m going to Shelbie’s funeral this Monday, and I am in tears thinking about it. Both of these girls were sweet and didn’t deserve this, and neither does anyone else.
PEOPLE LOVE YOU AND YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT.
Reach out for help, talk to people, talk to ME if you need to. I cannot tell you how horrible it is when someone leaves you like this. I’ve experienced it twice.
Please don’t leave the people who care about you like this, nobody deserves to experience this. YOU ARE SO VERY LOVED, even if you don’t always feel it.
Please talk to anyone you can, please find help if you feel like you want to go and never come back, please don’t do something that can’t be undone.
PLEASE LIVE FOR YOURSELF AND KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED.
