7 billion people and as I walked to the edge, I found no one to speak to.
17 years 22 days with people always around me and I found no one to speak to, I couldn’t understand how none of those 7 billion including me couldn’t present me the worth of being alive. But that day something that never spoke bought me sense, at the edge as I look down, I thought to myself what difference have I made to someone who suicided? The same thoughts might have ran in that persons mind as well. 7 billion people (again including me) and that person had no one to speak to. As I stood there ready to give up on everything, this played on repeat in my mind “YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE BUT IF YOU DO IT RIGHT ONCE IS ENOUGH”. My once wasn’t enough! I hadn’t lived it right. I got down the edge, walked back home and understood something very important “I AM THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN CHANGE MYSELF”. I constantly kept fighting that thought in my mind, I told myself I was worth nothing, there was nothing in this world for me and so get back on that edge, but yet again reality hit and my mind was convinced, I had changed! It took no time, off the edge with one thought and I had already changed! My brain is mine and I decide on how to use it.
Have you ever thought about tasty food and immediately felt like having some? … like now?
Use it the same way during difficult situations in life, divert your mind from that pain. Don’t let yourself fall prey to the ill-feelings this world holds, sometimes they’re meant to be there only to put you in the right place. There are never “problems” that a person has to face but “obstacles” and how to overcome these are in your hands. Learn from every small thing that has happened with you and around, apply them to your life, see how it works out!?
Don’t be afraid to be the first to walk down the road not taken. Be courageous enough to face what life throws at you. You’re the one that controls you!
You have your ONCE and make sure you live it RIGHT!
