Help

In the past 48-hours I have learned of multiple dear ones who are struggling with depression. When I say struggling I don’t mean, “Gee, I’m bummed about —.” The kind of depression I am referring to includes the need for counseling, healthy accountability, and a safe environment for healing.

If you, or someone you know, is in need of help– please contact someone– a friend, a teacher, a trusted family member.

A few years ago a movie came out called To Save a Life. The movie dealt with some heavy topics like teen suicide, teen pregnancy, and bullying. They have a page on Facebook and a contact number for help: 1-800-273-TALK. Another number for help is the Hope-line at 1-800-394-4673.
Please, ask for help. You are not alone.

HELP! by the Beatles

“Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody’s help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I’m not so self assured,
Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me.

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I’ve never done before.

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody’s help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I’m not so self assured,
Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I’m feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh.”
