I tried my best.

I’ve fought. My family has fought. My friends have fought. Your friends have fought. You gave up on yourself. You gave into the lie. I lie awake crying and praying and hoping that just maybe you’d come around but you’re so far gone our words graze your face then hit the floor. What happens next? Do I give up? Do I sit quiet and let you bash your friends and family by saying you’re unloved? Do I let you die? I tried my best but I don’t know what to do next. I tried my best but I’ve run out of words. I’ve run out of prayers. Just relentlessly repeating the same words over and over. I tried my best but how to you pin a cloud? How do you save someone that refuses to be saved? How do you love someone that won’t, not can’t, love them self?

You keep doing it anyway. I’m going through the exact same thing with a friend of mine. It’s frustrating sometimes and I really just want to shake her. But, that’s loving. It’s a choice. You choose this person over and over even when it isn’t the easiest thing. 

So keep choosing your friend. Even when you want to shake him/her. Sometimes others loving us well teaches us to love ourselves.


It’s worth the pain to love someone when they don’t love themselves. Because when they see the light they’ll all see how much you care and how much you are worth to them. Love is the key to life. to keep them living keep on loving
