This is a 405lbs deadlift. And here’s my contribution to #piece2peace helping raise awareness for mental illness. Everyone you know struggles with something here’s my story. Depression has been a battle my entire life. And here’s something I’ve kept to myself the entire time. I began therapy at 10 years old to help deal with thoughts of suicide. By the time I was 13 I was heavily medicated and had been hospitalized. Later that year I was institutionalized because of how bad I had become. Continued with therapy and counselling and medication until 18 when I was old enough to decide to try it my way. I stopped taking medication and it hasn’t been easy. I know what it’s like and it’s a rough go for anyone but there is always hope. I kept everything to myself the entire time until this year. Earlier this winter I attempted to kill myself and woke up in a hospital a few weeks later I went to see my close friend @mattryan and told him everything. He broke down and had tears coming from his eyes and he told me no matter how bad things are no matter what’s going on I always have him there and that he was just a phone call away. This changed my life and my lonely struggle forever. I love everyone who’s been there for me and since opening up to Matt everything has become just a little easier. There is always a reason to live and there is always someone willing to help you fight and if you really don’t think there is just message me I’ll prove you wrong. I hope this reaches someone who won’t like share or comment this who’s sitting alone just praying to die and I hope you read this and decide to live just one more day at a time. Thank you to my closest friends. @honjoward @dirtydrizzle @officialmelissanicole @snipegreen @thestagemonster and @mattryan for being there to hold me up when all I wanted to do was collapse.

Late night lifts so I don’t go out drinking haha. I was very unmotivated today. But fuck that when it gets rough just push harder.
