I don't want to be one of those burdensome Christians. You know the ones:
their only agenda is converting you or shoving Jesus down your throat.
That's not what I'm about. When I die, the legacy I
want to leave is love. I want people to say that I loved as hard,
long, and as many as anyone is capable of, if not more.
I want to heal people with my love, and Christ's love. It's only because of
Christ that I am able to love. It's only because of Him that I have
been loved, so therefore, I must pass it on. It's only because
of His love that I live... that I didn't kill myself during 5 years of severe
depression & suicidal attempts. Yes, I said it. I'm not ashamed of it.
It's part of who I am. Accept it, or don't; It doesn't matter to me
one way or another, because I accept it. It's my past, and it defines who I am.
I've learned from my past. This, of course, does not mean I am perfect. I am human and
make mistakes. I am a work in progress, but that doesn't keep me from doing
my best to help others learn to understand themselves, or do my best to understand them.
