on September 28th 2012, this boy messaged me on tumblr because he saw my blog full of cutting triggering photos. he said i was pretty, that he can help me and he will be someone that loves me. his name is Brendan. i used to self harm everyday, i had really bad depression, 9 failed suicide attempts, i had pushed everyone away and i went completely insane. but Brendan, he has not given up on me for one single second. at first i had pushed him away countless times, but he always came back no matter what. he slowly became my best friend, the person i told everything to, he would never fail to make me smile and we became extremely close. he has loved me since September 28th 2012 and eventually i fell in love with him. the reason why i have stopped cutting for 5 months is because of him, i’m slowly getting out of depression because of him, the reason for the smile on my face is him and the reason why i continue to breathe everyday is him. he has saved my life, more than once and still continues to.
he is my hero, my best friend, my boyfriend and my everything. but, he lives 1,843km away from me. out of 8 months, i have met him once. i spent a whole week with him. that one message has changed my whole life.
but if you really love someone, age, distance, height or weight doesn’t matter.
thank-you Brendan, for being someone that loves me.
