Love Is Louder by Sarahxoxox Love Is Louder :iconsarahxoxox:Sarahxoxox 92 21 but your words will never hurt me by silvermoonlight13 but your words will never hurt me :iconsilvermoonlight13:silvermoonlight13 33 15
There Are Monsters Inside of Me
My name is Brianna
There's a monster inside of me.
He like to tell me I'm fat
That I'm ugly, unworthy
of living the life that I have
I'm not beautiful enough
not pretty enough
not talented enough
not smart enough
to be loved.
He likes to watch me suffer;
watch me drown in my misery
suffocate in my anxiety
more than anything
he likes to make me hate myself.
He likes to tell me that
people are watching me
and judging me
"You're annoying, stop talking."
"Don't speak up, you'll regret it."
"You're an idiot."
"a stupid dreamer."
He reminds me that I want to be
everything that i could never
possibly be.
"I'll never make it in this life" I agree,
and he smiles at me, it's sick
"You finally believe the truth."
My name is Brianna
There's a monster inside of me.
She likes to tell me to stop trying
to give up on life
to give up on my friends
because really
"Who wants a fuck up
like you?"
She agrees with Him a lot
and tells me to stop eating
because I'd be beautiful if i were just
pale skin st

Scars are good.
Scars are good,
For when I am sad,
They shine bright
To show me what I have over come
And when I am happy,
They fade
To let me enjoy
What I have.

I'm not here. I'm not there. I'm not anywhere
I'm no-one, I'm nothing
I'm not alive
But I'm not dead either.
But I don't live,
I'm just killing time,
And I must breathe
Until one day
I'll surely have
My very wanted, loved
and longed
dying breath.

Hold On To Hope
I guess the truth is hard to swallow
Never is a hard thing to understand
Especially when all you want is relief
When you've spent years suffering with yourself
Fighting with yourself mantally and physically.
Never is a long time to have to struggle
But they say it gets easier with time.
Actually feeling your feelings
Won't hurt as bad in time
I'll hold on to that hope

MUCH TO LOSE by ToysoldierThor MUCH TO LOSE :icontoysoldierthor:ToysoldierThor 39 8
Falling off the road
What do i want to do with my life
Social Work
So many options, too many actually. There's so many! None of them seem to suit me. I can't find one! What if I never find one? I can't decide but I know I need to. But what if it doesn't work out? What if this isn't what i want? What if, what if WHAT IF?
I know nobody can help me out here it's up to me. All these great options and I have no idea. I have no fucking idea! Leave me alone! Stop talking about my future! JUST SHUT UP! please shut up...
STOP! Just stop it! I don't know ok?! I don't what to decide! That's why the future scares me, ok?! It's because I don't know if what i first chose is right for me! I don't know if that's what i want. I don't know what i want! I'm a fucking junior shouldn't I have some idea! Why haven't i figured this out?! Shouldn;t I know by now?! Why don't I?! What the fuck is wrong with me! Please pull be back from the edge....
Kiss me

Window of Recovery by karibous-boutique Window of Recovery :iconkaribous-boutique:karibous-boutique 53 49
Deep In Thought
She walks along the corridor
She's crying
She wants to go
Anywhere at all
She walks into an empty classroom
And collapses into the first chair
She cries
Hitting her head against the desk
Insults keep on throwing themselves
at her.
She stands up and
leans her head against the window
Stares at the sun until her eyes hurt
Until her head hurts
"You're disgusting"
"You're horrible"
Interrupted by
A knock on the door
And a group of girls walk in
"You ok?"
"We were looking for you"
"Why did you go running off like that?"
She stands up straight
"I'm fine,
She leaves with them
Her friends
And leaves the voices
Inside the classroom.
For her to be alone
To kill her
From the inside out.

Dear friends and followers,
If you have been around or my work for very long you soon realize that there is one word that summarizes who I am more than ANY other. That simple word is HOPE. It is such part of me some of you will remember be changing some of my group name and parts of my identity to "Hope in Recovery" a few months ago. Over the last couple years I have learned a very valuable lesson, especially in the world of social media. "Recovery" =  Substance Abuse /Addiction. That being said, I do not see what I do to be solely for the purpose of helping those battling this issue. That is not to say that I am abandoning all dear friends that are doing so. No what I have always felt was my "calling" is to try to help and share HOPE with ANYONE t hat is hurting. It may be addiction, mental illness, trauma, or just difficult life circumstances at that time.
With that said has come for me to acknowledge what this thing that I am doing is... it is a "ministry". There is NO way that I could be who I am and be able to shine the light of hope, if it where not for the Light of hope that is Christ.
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)

This hope, which is a safe and secure anchor for our whole being, enters the sanctuary behind the curtain. Hebrews 6:19 (CEB

Ok, to the point of this update....
I am seeking feedback and comments regarding a possible name change for said ministry.

"Hope for Healing Hurting Hearts" or H4 for short.

What do you think of the name as a whole and its fit for my established "vision"?

What do you think of the logo design?

I look forward to your comments and feedback

With sincere gratitude,
