Yeah… Not gonna lie… I cried… We need more people like this Goddamn it stop making me feel human The therapist I wanna be Text in the image “I’m a therapist and keep this poster in my waiting room apparently it’s saved a few lives” I don’t like the phrase “a cry for help” I just don’t like how it sounds When somebody says to me “I’m thinking about suicide I have a plan I just need a reason not to do it” the last thing I see is helplessness I think your depression has been beating you up for years It’s called you ugly and stupid and pathetic and a failure for so long that you’ve forgotten that it’s wrong You don’t see any good in yourself and you don’t have any hope But still here you are you’ve come over to me banged on my door and said “HEY! Staying alive is REALLY HARD right now! Just give me something to fight with! I don’t care if it’s a stick! Give me a stick and I can stay alive!” How is that helpless? I think that’s incredible You’re like a marine trapped for years behind enemy lines Your gun has been taken away you’re out of ammo you’re malnourished and you’ve probably caught some kind of jungle virus that’s making you hallucinate giant spiders And you’re still just going “GIVE ME A STICK I’M NOT DYING OUT HERE”“A cry for help” makes it sound like I’m supposed to take pity on you but you don’t need my pity This isn’t pathetic This is the will to survive This is how humans lived long enough to become the dominant species With NO hope running on NOTHING you’re ready to cut through a hundred miles of hostile jungle with nothing but a stick if that’s what it takes to get to safety All I’m doing is handing out sticks You’re the one saying alive I legit cried at this I’ve needed to hear it put this way Bless this post Every time I see this post I stop to read the whole image It always helps — even on the good days Because it wasn’t weakness It wasn’t shameful to seek help It wasn’t pathetic to “cry for help” I was looking for a stick be that from myself or from someone else I was trying to find a way out I was trying to heal myself this is fuckin incredible I’m sorry if I repost to many of these but if it could be someone’s “stick” then it’s worth it Meme
