My name is Brianna and I am the books that I've read, the people I've held, and the songs that I've listened to on repeat. I struggle with depression and self harm but I haven't given up yet. If you need someone to talk to, about anything, please don't hesitate, lovelies.
Before I die, I want to be somebody’s favorite hiding place, the place they can put everything they know they need to survive, every secret, every solitude, every nervous prayer, and be absolutely certain I will keep it safe. I will keep it safe.
– Andrea Gibson, from “Bone Burying” (via staubglanz)
… Because sometimes people do feel that way. Sometimes your life feels like it’s caving in on you. Sometimes people really do feel like they don’t want to exist, like they want to just curl up in a ball, and go into that place between life and death. Saying “I don’t want to exist” isn’t saying “I want to go die”. It’s saying:”I wish that, for the time being, I could go somewhere and not have to feel”. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. And if you don’t know how it feels to feel this way, then you have no place to judge anyone who does.
