Time to Talk

If anyone reads this, please can I ask that you support any of the following charities?

Campaign Against Living Miserably

Samaritans

Time to Change

Relate

Those organisations and initiatives offer a very simple service of just being there.  To some people, that’s the most important thing.

I wrote my story, I’m just not sure whether to post it all.  I’ve left the conclusion:

The hardest thing about it was being able to say that there was something wrong and have someone listen to that.  Only months ago, I wouldn’t have realised how important it was to have someone to talk to.  The most comforting thing was someone asking me “How are you? Are you OK?” It doesn’t make the problems go away, but it at least makes you realise that there’s people who care and sometimes that can be the most empowerment you need to start to work on them.

To know that someone has your back… That’s the best thing.

You say life is a dream where we can’t say what we mean
Maybe just some roadside scene that we’re driving past
There’s no telling where we’ll be in a day or in a week
And there’s no promises of peace or of happiness

Well is this why you cling to every little thing
And pulverize and derange all your senses
Maybe life is a song but you’re scared to song along
Until the very ending

Oh, it’s time to let go of everything we used to know
Ideas that strengthen who we’ve been
It’s time to cut ties that won’t ever free our minds
From the chains and shackles that they’re in

Oh, tell me what good is saying that you’re free
In a dark and storming sea
You’re chained to your history, you’re surely sinking fast
You say that you know that the good Lord’s in control
He’s gonna bless and keep your tired and oh so restless soul
But at the end of the day when every price has been paid
If you’re gonna rise and sit beside him on some old seat of gold
And won’t you tell me why you live like you’re afraid to die
You’ll die like you’re afraid to go

Oh, it’s time to let go of everything we used to know
Ideas that strengthen who we’ve been
It’s time to cut ties that won’t ever free our minds
From chains and shackles that they’re in
From the chains and shackles that they’re in

Well life is a dream ’cause we’re all walking in our sleep
You could see us stand in lines like we’re dead upon our feet
And we build our house of cards and then we wait for it to fall
Always forget how strange it is just to be alive at all
