Semicolon Movement

20150619_190308_resized

The semicolon is used when a sentence could have ended, but it continues.

For those who have self harmed, been depressed, or attempted suicide, the semicolon movement serves as a reminder that your sentence doesn’t have to end.  Also, you don’t have to end it.

The semicolon movement is designed to help people remember that, “It’s not over, till it’s over.”

Don’t give up on your life.

Saved by a Pocket Knife

Pocket knives have been around for centuries.  Knives with folding blades were used in Spain before the Roman era.

Pocket knives come in handy during an emergency and have a wide variety of uses.  They can be used to open letters or packages, peel fruit, for personal protection, and all sorts of other things.

A few weeks ago I discovered a new use for pocket knives.  I was in a gas station bathroom stall and really needed to use the facility.  However, the stall lock was missing, so I jammed my pocket knife into the lock bracket.  It worked great and I was able to finish my business.

I was saved by a pocket knife.

Asking for Help is Hard

I found this message in a fortune cookie.

“The healthy and strong individual is the one who asks for help when he needs it.”

I have a hard time asking for help when I need it.  I feel that asking for help, when I am depressed, makes me look weak or that people will think I am a loser.

It takes a lot of strength to admit that you have a problem and need help.

This fortune cookie message is right and has motivated me to improve in this area.
