We Are Special

Mon Aug 4, 2014, 4:00 PM



Hello Pups~ ^w^

hi~ im here to say something to everyone out there. it might not make a difference in ur life if u read this, but i just want to let u guys know.

We all have a time in our lives where we forget our reasons for living. We go through hardships and problems that leads us to think, "what's my reason for living? No one will even remember me. Im just one person. Will me being here even make a difference?" Thinking so, it leads to depression and sadness.

But its not true that we have no reason in living in this world. We are blinded by the negative stuff around us and fail to see the positive of what our lives mean.

You think your presence in this world doesn't make a difference? IT DOES. From the moment you were born, you made someone out there happy, it might not be your family, but somebody out there that is happy you are alive.

You think people dont care about you and see you as a problem? SO WHAT? It's your own life and u can make someone care about you if you really wanted to. Dont think no one cares and leave youself in the dark- all alone and empty inside. It's you who has to interact with other people in order to make someone care and love about you. No one will if u keep sulking about people not caring about you. 

And often times, we stop in our lives and think, "Why am I born in this world?"

You are born, because you had a purpose to be born. Everyone is special in their own way. Don't let people who are better than you, stop you from becoming a better person. 

and lastly, thoughts about suicide will never EVER be a solution. So never think u should or even consider to, because u ARE special and there are people out there who care about u. just take the first step and never be scared. dont ever forget that.

Ota....as a person who underwent those thoughts and that kind of mindset, every point you brought up hits home.  Also though (playing a big of devil's advocate), with those who DO have thoughts like that, being soft towards them also isn't an answer, because in order to lead to such thoughts, their perspective and worldviews on things are so ingrained into them that being soft on them is like grazing the surface.  You'd have to uproot that mindset out of them by force...ultimately, it IS their choice to live or die..but the best way to help them choose life as well is not just merely with words but also actions.  Have them do stuff, challenge them, etc.  Whatever it is you do, it has to be so intensive that it'll rip out their mindset and they themselves will starting willing themselves to live and find a reason to.  It's..really complicated to explain but easy to practice.  I got out of it..but it took a treatment that I didn't expect to get in order to "get better" lol

But yea, hope your message inspires those who read it.

I once had thoughts like this too a some time ago but what kept me going as a person was the thought of how would my friends feel and that was what keeps me going in life lol

I can't put it into words....how inspirational this journal entry is. I am really glad that you wrote this. You may not know it but there is that someone who read this and realized that you are right. Words can save a person and you did a good job on making this inspirational journal entry. I was really moved. I am a pessimistic person and this text somehow boost my confidence. I am really thankful that out there, there is someone who wants others to feel that they are special. Taiga and Minori (I miss you hug) [V1]

I once had those thoughts... you know...
sometimes I look forward and are so excited about the future, but then everything suddenly loses hope, and I think I might just be a plague to everyone.
But hey, actually I've stopped myself because I don't want to see the ones I love cry, and that is mostly what has been keeping me positive together with my lovely friends, both irl and here on DA~~

I'm crying right now...

Thank you for writing this... I can see that it has helped lots of people~~

"What's the point of fighting? What's the point of working so hard for the things in life that you value so much, only to have it taken away from you in a matter of seconds? From dust to dust, nothing lasts forever, yet it would be wrong to say that our trials and tribulations are worth anything less than what they are. Because life is what you make it and the worth you find in it comes from the meaning you attach. So when life gets tough and it feels like the world is crashing down around you, just remember - it's all only temporary, and there's no sense in giving up the dreams that you've fought for so long."
youtu.be/2JN8rWkg-d8

The moment you think death is the only way, you just proved those who did you wrong; who called you weak, right.

Life can be challenging, yes. We are all looking for something in life, love, friends, the future the past, money. Whatever it is you gotta remember what you have now, even if you dont realize it yet, cuz that thing you are looking for may not be all that you thought it would be, or you may not find it. Not right away at least :P
but that's part of the challenge, and like is no fun without challanges becuase that moment you complete that challenge, trust me, it's an amazing feeling.


(sometimes i wonder if what i say makes sense ._.)

I don't wanna write anything too long since I see quite a bit of long comments on this journals, so I will keep it easy on you ^u^

What exactly brought you to write this journal? Last time you wrote something like this was when you were in a bit of a rut a while back.
You feeling down or you trying to reach out to someone on here?
I was moved by this. I cried a little actually ^^; . I hate being alone in the silence because it makes me get too in depth with my thoughts when that happens, I kind of become my own bully TwT and it usually won't stop until someone interrupts me and my mind.
That's why I usually like having my cousin at my house with me because she is my best friend who is a great distraction from the sorrow.
That's also why I like school...I am kept occupied most of the day from the loneliness.
There were times when I was in 6th grade that I just wanted to die because I was so alone...I didn't have friends, I was failing my classes, anyone was hardly ever home; kids at school treated me like I was some kind of satanist, Gothic, mute (it was like impossible to get me to talk). I had like one friend, and she moved in the middle of the year.
I fear that will happen again from me moving to a new school for my 10th grade year. I have terrible social skills. I don't even know how I got the friends I have now!!

I hope I find my reason for being here...I feel more like I was put here for someone else - like I just have to wait to meet that certain person to know why I am here.
Maybe I won't find my purpose until I am older...much older...

(Sorry about not making that really all that short XP I tried, pup TwT)

HELL YES!!!! These are words of a true friend and a good person. Even the smallest, glimmering light can guide you out of the darkest times. And if you see that someone's light not burning anymore, help them and guide their way out. Be their light out of darkness. These words Otakupup, I hope this will be a beacon to those who are lost in this ugly yet beautiful world that we all love, hate, live and die in.

Thank you for the beautiful words,

I'm sure you have changed peoples life, everyone eventually stops and thinks to themselfs 'Why was I born into this world. I don't make any difference...' but you do, there is always someone out there that you make smile, and laugh. Don't ever think you worthless and pointless.

Thank you for these words, I'll value them, even if they wern't directed toward just me.

Again, thank you for these beautiful words, it means very much, not just for me, for everyone.

Wow... This kinda hit me.. Not only because it teaches a valuable lesson, but because it's relatableーand sometimes things are more heartfelt when they're relatable. I've gone through this stage in my life, and it's not a stage that everyone goes through. I went through the emotion I thought to be "pain," not through the body but through the mind, and I walked to death's door. Then I remembered everything I'd be leaving behind and thought to myselfーis what waits beyond that door worth the world? And what do you think my answer was? I'm here today, no? And I'm here to read your beautiful encouragement, yeah? I experienced what it felt like to be marked as a hinderance, an idiot, a worthless freakーand I still do. I'm still surrounded by "friends" who talk jack about me on my back and "friends" who can "trust me with anything." I don't know who to call my "friends" and who to trust anymore, and I don't careーI don't care if my friends like me or not. What matters is that I love them. And since I know it makes people happy to be trusted, I'll trust them. I'll trust them to be my friends, and I'll trust them to trust me. Your words made me see that, OtakuPup. Your words made me see that though I believe that most people don't like meーhate me, evenーand maybe they do, your 7 paragraphs taught me to see beyond that and learn that maybe it's not about the friends that love you but the you that loves your friends. And if you don't see reason in living for people, live for the things you love: music, religion, art, poetry, books, lightーand hell, maybe even ponies. You know why, of all the names, I chose TheUnlocking? Well, I'm sure you can figure it out. If notーheheーit's whatever your imagination conjures up.

Don't cry for the lost, but smile for the living; get what you need and give what you're given. Life's for the living, so live it, or you're better off dead.

And I don't know how to say thank you. But, sometimes, the best way to say thank youーeven more than balloons and kisses, trucks with surprises or airplanes with bannersーis to say it, the two words that can change a life and make someone special:

Thank you

Sincerely, :unlock:

hello po~ ^w^

aaw... im really grateful for those two words indeed, but those arent the ones i want the most out of this journal. i want people to realize the things aroundthem and not be blinded by the negatives of this world. im glad i helped u realize that. and yes, trust s wat people need to feel that we are there. in presence. and with them. and yes. you loving other people is wat u need as well, i have felt pain like this sometimes as well, but i know if i have a reason to go everday outside my house, i can feel complete. whether if it is people or items.

hmmm~ the unlocking.... i would say, ur trying to open up urself to people? heheheheh

but im glad this helped u. heeheh~ ^w^

Oh ... my god ... Your text is beautiful! QAQ 
To be more serious sincerely I already thought once to kill me ... 
Life was so bad that I was depressed all the time. 
In my head I thought "They say that death is an act of cowardice but is it to be alive andunhappy or die and be at peace?" 
There is a song that explains exactly how I felt. www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1QtuM… (it is in french I'm sorry for that) I'm much better but sometimes I think about it .. It's a bit silly is not it? 
Wah it's good to say what you think. 
I will continue to move forward despite the obstacles! 
Text gives me a bit of courage to live! Thank you.

I've been having a few hard times, so this has helped me tenfold.
I really do mean this, thank you so much.

I know suicide isn't an answer, I would NEVER go that far. But there are a few other things that I MIGHT have done.
So thank you very much for putting this up.
