To the undocumented immigrant contemplating suicide I've been in your shoes I remember wanting to take my life at 17 because l felt alone scared & my life was filled with uncertainty Here l am 9 years later at 26 You deserve to dream but most importantly you deserve to live Iván Ceja Repost @IvanCejatv “There are times when I still feel alone scared and my life is still filled with uncertainty Sometimes it feels like it hasn’t gotten any better truth be told but I am stronger today and I’m better able to tackle the obstacles that come with being undocumented in the US It can feel like a never ending cycle of having to validate your humanity because being human isn’t enough for some people But still you will rise above and even higher when you realize that legislation that never passes and the headlines that call you illegal do not define you You might feel alone but I want you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE You might be a lot of other things but not alone I know undocumented immigrants from across the country - literally every state - that want to be your friend Let me know and I will introduce you to them If you are still reading this then chances are that you can relate Perhaps you are not as misunderstood as you thought Nonetheless I believe you matter and the fact that you have made it this far just goes to show that you are stronger than you give yourself credit for You deserve to dream but most importantly you deserve to live You deserve to live Make the call if you need to It is brave to ask for help” Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255 Meme
