Autism & “I’m Living Proof” Video (AFOOW #5) (by AFOOWater)
The “Another Fish Out Of Water” Project #5: "Autism & I’m Living Proof Video"
Hello everyone, my apologies for the late and very short video this week. Next week will have a “real” AFOOW video and will be out on time (Monday). For now, please check out the video (provided by Matt N) linked in the annotations or here in the description. You may learn something about Autism and the potential for treatment.
I posted this three times tonight and had three people tell me that I helped save their life. Thank you to those people who have decided to struggle through to let us enjoy the gift of one more day of their prescence gracing us all. I hope that you all reblog this, to save another few. Because we all dserve another chance and hope in life. I went to the hospital 6 times before I decided to keep my life but I hope none of you suffer that much. And I hope you all can make that scary, seemingly painful, blind, hoping, wonderful step to live.
I want to help you in any way I can. ANYTHING. I mean it. If I had had someone stay with me and text me or talk to me all night, just one time, it would have changed my life. I know how hard those nights can be.
^I love this girl more than words can express.
foundmywaywheniwaslost: I am always here if anyone ever needs to talk/vent. You have a purpose, Please Stay Alive. <3
Not just for tonight but for the rest of your life. You have so much to look forward to in the future that if you choose to kill yourself, it will be the biggest mistake of your life. You’re going to miss out on people you’ll never be able to meet, kids you’ll never have, a partner to love or partys to go to. There’s just too much that you’ll miss out on. You deserve and have the right to be here as much as the person next to you does. You’re just a drop in the ocean. You were meant to be here and you have a purpose. Don’t ever forget that. And if you feel like you don’t, just believe in yourself because you do. If you ever feel worthless or like shit, know that I love you and those dicks that tell you shit are jealous that you’re who you are because there’s something about you that they wish they could have. Please stay strong and never give up because things DO GET BETTER.
3rd time I reblog this xx
Keep your self awake, I hope your here to stay. This day is not yet over, let me be your four leaf clover.
Reblogged it and queued it so it’ll post tomorrow too. And the next day and the next so I hope I can save someone. We all love you.
someone messaged me this morning saying it helped and thanked me, so im reblogging this again, and queuing it. stay strong guys.
I reblog this whenever I see it. If you don’t reblog it, unfollow me right now. If you don’t care enough to put this simple picture on your blog, I’m judging you.
The very first time that I reblogged this, I had someone message me the next day saying that because of me, they didn’t kill themself. From then on whenever I see anything like this on Tumblr it’s an instant reblog for me. After receiving that message it just changed something in me. Whenever anyone I see on my dash is having thoughts of self-harm or even suicide, I automatically go to their page and offer them even just an ear to listen. Nearly all of them I receive messages back from saying that they are grateful, and they end up sharing their story with me, and in return I give them advice as best I can. Several of them have said that their lives have gotten much better because they opened up and sought out help.
Out of those people, I’d say at least 5 have even gone so far as to say that they didn’t kill themself because of me. That is, I kid you not, the best feeling in the world.
Viewer Response: Alone in North Carolina (by @AFOOWater)
Hello everyone, and welcome to “Another Fish Out Of Water”, a project from Papa Kenn Media to reach out and help anyone out there that feels alone in the world. In this video, I read a message from an anonymous viewer that wants to share her story with you all.
Middle School: A Time When I Felt Completely Alone (by @AFOOWater)
Hello everyone, and welcome to “Another Fish Out Of Water”, a project from Papa Kenn Media to reach out and help anyone out there that feels alone in the world. In this video, I provide some insight on a comment I left on my own Facebook question last week.
ParaNorman is an excellent and unexpectedly emotional animated film about a boy that can see and talk to ghosts. Of any animated film that I can recall, none other has ever hit the topics of bullying, being singled out, being an outcast, and having no one understand you like ParaNorman did.
Though a little crude at times with its humor, if you have never seen or experienced what it’s like to be singled out and feel completely different from everyone else…you need to see ParaNorman. You will be surprised at how powerful such an animated film can be.
