NEVER THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE, I’M TOO ALIVE

NEVER THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE, I’M TOO ALIVE

Today is my 25th birthday and I’m so grateful for life.

I remember a few times I thought about taking it. But today, at 25, sat in Dubai Mall, I feel so alive and I’m happy that I didn’t.

Life isn’t always easy, sometimes it’s not even real life hard but depression doesn’t care how you feel. It takes true strength and determination to get through it, along with a lot of love.

I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for the tremendous amount of love that my family and friends – most importantly my Mum – constantly shower me with, I wouldn’t be here. You guys unknowingly are the reason that I am.

After nearly 6 months on the road, time alone to truly grow and figure out who I am, I’m in the best place mentally, that I’ve ever been.

I understand what it truly means to not only whole heartedly love myself but also the world and everyone in it.

For the first time in a long time I hold not one ounce of bad energy or hatred in my heart, only love and light.

I’m blessed to be in a position to live life on my own terms (thanks mum) even when that means making mistakes.

The next 365 days of my life are going to be amazing. I said it, so it shall be.

This is my year of yes, my year of now and my year of no fear.

Nothing truly great ever came from a comfort zone.

Forever blessed, Rio x
