Project Semicolon ; "Your Story Is Not Over "

Do you know what Project ; is? Sometime last year I found an article about it and also saw the tattoos people were getting of semicolons and wanted to find out more about it. People think that searching online can give you self-destructive ideas on how to harm yourself and that some groups encourage you too do so, but that's not always the case. I really like this organization because I relate to it and also it is an online community that offers support and it's people like you and me that can relate to your story.
Project semi colon is seen as a community, an outlet, an organization for those who have known and would like to show support to someone who past due to a suicide, or attempted might even be themselves, or have an addiction, eating disorder, self -harm, who have depression or any other mental illness. I have gone through and relate to all that I just mentioned. I too would like a ; tattoo, but I have not decided when I would get it or where on my body.  

Here is an article from the founder of project semicolon Project Semicolon Founder's Story . This organization also lets you share your story which I like to read. I think they are so courages to be telling the world their story... maybe one day I would be able to do the same. As of now I am interested in reading stories from those that have gone through struggles similar to mine; perhaps because we can connect personally because of our stories.

Even though I have not been able to share my "secrets" in this blog (except for little pieces here and there) I have gotten a lot of comfort knowing I can come online and just write what I am feeling, express it as I wish, and even though the blog is not a Psychologists replacement it does so much good for me to be able to release pent up emotions that I have had for years. Not sure how long I will write about my struggles. I always have written in diaries as a child and yes I remember writing some really personal things in them, I always was able to release some emotions through poetry rather than talking and I love blogging but eventually I always give up writing and delete my blog... but it looks like this one will stay up for a while.
