Post Secret (Find it Here), last week, received a postcard which showed the following.
Following this postcard being posted on the website, many thousands of people instantly began replying telling them of their own stories of depression telling this anonymous sender to reconsider their thoughts, offering shelter, money, and even free professional assistance, even legal representation! A Facebook page was even created and within one week over 50,000 members have joined (find it here). A fan page has now been created due the phenomenal amount of fans joining, the page was unable to cope with its large post numbers informing of their love. (find it here).
For the people who are facing similar thoughts, please reconsider, at noon on Sunday (13.06.10) (Unsure what time zone… assuming its for that area) People are standing on the Golden Gate to promote this persons suffering, and to raise awareness of the ever growing issue.
This is for you, whoever you are. You are not alone, many people suffer what you do, it is not uncommon. There is help available!
For those who are suffering, please contact someone, even me, your best friend, family, parents, or even a helpline, there are many out there.
These are a few I know of. There are many more.
