I’m sure we are all aware by now that I struggle with my mental health. I am a strong advocate that the little things can make a huge difference. Which is where this post comes in. A few weeks ago I opened the post to find a personal letter and friendship bracelet from Letters.of.support (on Instagram). I cried, the letter was written with positivity surrounding suicidal thoughts. I couldn’t believe that someone would go out of their way to send me a letter to make my day that little bit better.
She sends a friendship bracelet with each letter, so if you’re ever feeling alone, you can remember that others in the world who are struggling also have the same bracelet on their wrist. I think this is a lovely idea.
Letters of Support is currently struggling with donations to afford the postage of her letters, yet she does not want to stop spreading support. I hope you can donate even as little as 65p/$1, which will cover one letter to someone who may really need it. This isn’t just a post to encourage you to help. I’m posting this so if you are also struggling you may benefit from receiving a letter, in which case head over to her Instagram, she can personalize your letter to whatever you may be struggling with.
I am also posting this to say THANK YOU! A single letter bought enough positivity to brighten my day completely. I smile each time I look at my bracelet, and feel a little less alone. What you’re doing is so selfless, inspiring and helpful that I hope you also continue to do this project. I appreciate you! I’m comforted by the fact there is still lovely people in the world.
Head over to ‘letters.of.support’ on Instagram to check out her project.
