DEAR ESCAPIST Ep 1

EPISODE 1

YOU ARE A FIGHTER, SOLDIER ON…

Sometimes you feel taking some bottles and smoking some sticks gets you really out of all the trauma and painful moments but after a few hours, eyes are cleared and it’s like you are back to reality. You say to yourself after all this makes me feel good. I forget all that is happening around me and I love the feeling.

But Hey you, do you really forget? After some hours and your eyes are cleared, ain’t you back to the same thought and trauma? In those moments you then begin to say to yourself, oh, “I know you are better than this” I know you don’t have to do this all the time”. Escaping into alcohol, cigarettes and all isn’t really solving this in anyway.

Dear ESCAPIST, I know you are made for more. This isn’t you. I know you want a better life. I know you feel broken and messed up on the inside. You scream so loud but nobody can hear you. You are shouting “I need help” but nobody seems to notice how much you are struggling. You’ve practically gotten to the end of the the rope. You don’t even want to live to see the next day but hey, you are a fighter and you won’t give up now. This isn’t the history you want to write. You want to show generations to come, the strength to hold on and pull through. You want them to know you overcame despite all.

DEAR ESCAPIST…

Soldier on and don’t give up. Don’t stop believing that your best days are not behind you. Your thoughts will torment you with everything that is going wrong in your life but because you a king and a queen, you’ve got to understand you are the greatest.

Lives are waiting. The world is waiting. Patiently waiting for you to manifest. Depression isn’t going to deprive you of the future so bright that lies ahead. The thoughts to ease the pain through vices will come. It will look like the world will be a better place without you but that’s a lie. The world is incomplete without you. When a brick is removed, it affects the other bricks and so are you.

I want to see you rise. I want to see you win because yes you can win. The worst treatment might have come from those you love the most but I know you. You are born with a spirit. A spirit that doesn’t give in. A spirit that bounces back.

DEAR ESCAPIST… running to death for freedom, I don’t how you feel right now but I do hope the words above brings Ray of hope into your life.
