I didn’t know her personally nor did I know exactly who she was before today but damn… Another gone from an internal war. Depression & Suicidal thoughts are not a game, hold your loved ones close and remember, those that appear to be the happiest could be fighting something no one could ever understand on the inside. People are getting better and better at hiding their feelings and no matter how much others love you and think you’re good enough your demons won’t allow you to believe it. It’s a horrible thing but please keep going. I know it’s much harder than it sounds but someone loves you more than you will ever know and this is a fact. Don’t give up. Not yet. Tell your loved ones that you love them, pick up the damn phone and stop waiting on them to call, give more hugs, you never know who needs it. Spend time with your friends and family. Keep them close to you and damnit whatever you do SHOW them they are loved! Saying it is not enough! On that note May your beautiful soul Rest in Peace Simone Battle, you’re not hurting anymore.
