There are some things that aren't meant to be shared with the internet - things that I keep in my heart and in my mind and in moments of understanding conversations. But sometimes it helps to get it out there.
When someone you love is struggling, a part of your world just doesn't feel right. There's a sudden tug of sorrow, a phone call that makes you worry, a story that reminds you, and of course - the tears. So many tears.
If you search hard enough, there always seems to be a memory or a feeling that fills you with hope. Something to hang onto through the pain. So here's to my hope and prayers (many prayers) for that someone to surrender, overcome, and most of all - become that bright and brilliant person we all know and love.
"It's just that you can't help them and it's all so discouraging," wrote F. Scott Fitzgerald. But the truth is, you do help them, and you help one another. - David Sheff, Beautiful Boy
