GLOBAL CRISIS LINES
I found that keeping a journal opened up a voice inside me that had lay dormant my entire life. Not talking led me to a point where I imploded into my own black hole where no light could escape. But there was light. There were people around me to help me out. Below you’ll find some people in your area that are there to listen. Use them. It’s OK to put your hand up and ask for help. It doesn’t make you weak, or less of a man.
