She needs your help. Now.

August 26, 2010

I just came across 17 year old blogger Rachel.  Jamie at Inspired Mess posted today about her.  And she needs help.  Your help.  Really, take one minute today, right now, and try and show this girl that life is not as terrible as it seems.  Let her know that it’s worth living.  She is leaning dangerously close to suicide.  Tell her that HER life is worth living.  Tell her that she is beautiful.  Tell her something.

what I need is some inspiration. I need someone I admire to tell me every thing’s going to be alright. That they believe in me. That I’m not the fat failure I think I am. unfortunately I can’t see that happening any time before it’s too late, if it’s not already too late.”

That was what she posted on her blog the other day.  So go give her the inspiration she is craving.  She is 17, just a kid,  she lost her father, she is struggling with eating disorders and depression and she needs a little support right now.  If you do nothing else today go read Jamie’s post about her and the LoveBomb mission.  And then go give Rachel two sentences of your time.  It could make all the difference for her.

    Thanks for the heads up about her…. will head that direction and leave my words right now.

    I commented — told her that though high school may indeed be wretched, it is entirely possible for the rest of life to be different.

    Some other stuff too. But that was all I wanted her to really hear.
