Random description/story idea…

But then something happened to his face, something that two seconds before, I would’ve believed had never happened to him. He smiled. And it wasn’t cold or distant. It was warm and welcoming, and in that moment, I knew that everything would be alright.

He had a way with people like that. He’d look in someone’s direction, and, without even knowing the problem, he’d reassure them that everything would be ok. When he entered a room, the mood changed. People’s spirits lifted, and I guess I liked that about him.

I was head over heels. A hopeless romantic, always was, I blame my Mam for that. Always with my head in a book, whether it be about a young soldier off to war, or brave heroes fighting the world together, as long as it had a happy ending. Happy endings were important to me, back then. Back when I believed in them. Back when I was young. Innocent. Oblivious.

But you see, all of this was before that summer started. Before IT happened. Before I met him.

This is just something random that I’ve thought of, and have been tweaking with to try make sense. I hope to develop this in the future, to find out who this mysterious boy my head has conjured is, and what that IT is🤔😂

PS. Those ‘brave heroes fighting the world together’ are based on the characters in ‘Percy Jackson’, ‘Heroes of Olympus’, and ‘Trials of Apollo’ by Rick Riordan😂 (some of my favourite series♥️)

Is there a point?

I sit on my bed, in my Micky mouse PJ bottoms and bright red jumper. As I gaze around my room, clean from when I organised it yesterday, I wonder…. Why would I do that? Why would I clean my room? Why would I open my eyes in the morning, and get up? Why brush my teeth and choose an outfit? Why do we rise when it’s bright outside and sleep when it’s dark? Who decided the rules of life? What idiot decide that 1+1=2, not 13? And why would they do this?

I guess I’ll never know why. We live our lives without knowing, or even questioning why. Some people are content with this, others obviously aren’t. I don’t know which I am….. I’ll have to take a moment and decide that..

‘Every Day’ Quote

“Some people think mental illness is a matter of mood, a matter of personality. They think depression is simply a form of being sad, OCD is a from of being uptight. They think the soul is sick, not the body. It is, they believe, something that you have a choice over.
I know how wrong this is.”

“Every Day” by David Levithan (page 137)

Love this quote. Hope this can open someone’s eyes as to how serious mental illness is.
