I Was Here by lainey-nesu I Was Here by lainey-nesu
I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that, meant something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I'll leave no regrets.
Leave something to remember, so they won't forget

I was here...I lived, I loved
I was here...I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be.
I will leave my mark so everyone will know

I Was Here - Beyonce [link]


Last week, we got news that a high school classmate to my employer's son had taken his own life, believing there was nothing left in this world left for him. Coincidentally, I went to the same HS as well, so the connection's made it hit home a little more than usual, and just got me thinking...

Most of us probably strive to be something bigger than what we currently are. We push ourselves to make a mark in the world, and believe that we did something worth mentioning in our lives. Few of us achieve the benchmark we set, but most of us get there without even knowing it. Because the truth is, we touch the lives of those we meet. This is our impact on the world, no matter how big or small it may be. Just one word, one hug, one conversation may be enough to change someone's life. From the biggest of personalities to the quietest of introverts, I believe that someone will always know we were here.

I honestly don't say this enough, but thank you to all the lovelies here who have blessed me with your company. I love the laughs, the conversations, and every story we've created. Thank you for leaving your footprints in my life <33

NB: The gladiolus flower portrayed symbolises 'remembrance'.

Beautiful message (but at the same time sad). More people need to realize what said words mean
Thank you very much <3
Yea unfortunately 'little' things like these tend to get swept under the rug until it's too late, so I reckon it's good to remind ourselves that these 'little' things are a lot more significant than we give them credit for ;v;

awww! that is so sad!!!! suicide is never the answer!! therapy is!
Yea pretty much, though unfortunately a lot of people either don't want to accept the help or see themselves as too far gone to find a way out ;^;
