ISA

Isa’s friend wrote to us and asked for some much needed encouragement for her. He shared:

“I met Isa seven years ago, and I knew then that I had made a friend for life. She's probably the strongest person I know, and has had to battle some really tough situations in her life, including her best friend taking his own life. She's always there for the ones she loves, but people haven't always been there for her. Now she's suffering from anxiety and depression, and I know she feels really isolated. Even though the loneliness is taking a toll on her, she tries to hide it because she feels like she's burdening the people close to her with unnecessary problems.

Isa is fiercely loyal, a great listener and a wonderful advice-giver. You can count on her at any time of the day or night and she will be right there for you. I would like you to join me in letting her know that she matters and, above all, that she is not alone.”

JACK

Jack’s mother contacted us + shared that he has endured a multitude of loss. She requested a bundle of love letters by writing the following:

“Jack is the kindest, bravest young man I know. He has an incredibly sensitive heart and soul and has experienced more heartbreak is his short life than most of us face in a lifetime.  Jack is nineteen, and over the past four years he has lost six friends to a variety of tragedies including suicide, accidental overdose, a mass shooting, complications from a surgery and car accidents. Already struggling with depression and anxiety, Jack spiraled into a new depth of darkness. After a long and difficult summer, he made the brave choice to enter a partial in-patient program nearby. Jack is now on the path to a brighter future and hopes to return to college next fall. However, he still needs to be reminded of the goodness in the world and the kindness of others.”

Grab your pens + help us encourage Jack as he faces grief. Let’s remind him that the world is also bright.

TAYLOR

One of Taylor’s friends requested a bundle of love letters for her. Her friend shared with us:

“I met Taylor our freshman year of college and she is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. However, she suffers from depression and anxiety and has very low self-esteem. Taylor doesn't seem to feel comfortable in her own skin. She is an incredibly talented film student and has actually turned down amazing opportunities because she thinks she isn't good enough. Her confidence is seriously lacking and it breaks my heart to see her talent and know that she has the ability to share it with so many people if she could just believe in herself.

Recently, Taylor’s mom got laid off from her job. As a college student, this puts Taylor in a very tight place financially and she worries a lot about her mom in general. Taylor often uses her fear and anxiety as an excuse to isolate herself from going out and being with her friends. Anytime we try to offer to pay for her or offer even just to stay in with her, she says she doesn't want to be a burden. No one should ever feel like a burden. She told us one time that she didn't want to come to dinner with us because she, “didn't want to ruin our night.” We love Taylor, and there is no way she could possibly ruin our night. Taylor is so sweet and would do anything for her friends and now I need to do this for her. I want to show her she is valued, wanted, and most importantly, loved.”

Please join us as we encourage + love on Taylor as she struggles with insecurities and self-worth.

ANNE

Anne’s daughter reached out to us + shared a part of her story. She wrote:

My parents were deeply in love–if there were ever two people who were soulmates, it was them. They spent forty-five years together and even though there were hard times their love never dimmed. My father left my mother little love notes. He loved making her dinner and driving her to the beach.

However, on June 21st, my father collapsed and died on the bathroom floor. My mom found him, and that day all their plans for retirement and enjoying growing old together just evaporated. My mom is alone now, in a silent house that is suddenly empty.

My mom is a caregiver–she made so many sacrifices to take care of her elderly parents, to take care of me when I went through major depression, and she took care of dad. She took care of everyone. But now she is alone and hurting. People are going on with their lives now, and the rush of sympathy and support has naturally slowed after my father’s passing. My mother cries a lot and her smile has gone. She is alone and lost, and I would love for her to know some people care.”

Please join us in penning words of hope + love to Anne.
