Repost @themightysite – National Suicide Prevention Week is this September. For some, this month can be emotionally and mentally challenging. That is why we invited @jacquelinewhitney_ — writer, wordsmith, poet and mental health advocate — to create September’s #MightyPoets poetry prompt: “I am #BeyondWorthy because…” as reminders to both ourselves and one and other that we are worthy and deserving, and this world needs us here.
@jacquelinewhitney_ says, “You are beyond worthy of this life because you are here. You’re a breathing, precious embodiment of purpose. While I wish you never felt the type of pain you have, your scars, whether physical or mental, hold a power of helping someone in a capacity others can not. You can help the ones who understand what it feels like to touch the dark with bleeding hands. Healing happens deeper when we can relate to someone. In a time when many are feeling heavy, we need lightness. We need affirmation and truth. We need to come together and wrap our words around our hearts. But first, we need to remind ourselves of who we are and why we are here. I’ll start. I am beyond worthy because even after everything that has happened in my life, I am still here using my life to love others.”
How would you complete the sentence?
