Post of The Month (July)

Aidan is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Lucie,

You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate...

    I tried to talk to you
    When that didnít work,
    I tried to show you,
    When that backfired,
    I tried to see it from your view.

    About a kid,
    Who is not your child,
    Or related in anywayÖ

    I stepped into your shoes,
    And then I realised,
    That I am nothing to you.

      They donít get it.
      How wounds appear,
      Itís not the actions of our razors,
      But our fallen tears.

        Speak from your feelings,
        Feel from your soul,
        and listen with your eyes
        Because not every secret is told.

          I remember phrases,
          From when I was wee,
          Of how I should be,
          And what was wrong with me.

          I remember being told,
          I was to be seen and unheard,
          For a child has no mind
          Upon this adult earth.

          These words didnít bother me,
          But what hurt was not mattering enough,
          For someone to know that they eventually would.
