Paramore’s Hayley Williams shared a message via Twitter on World Suicide Prevention Day.
“yesterday was #WorldSuicidePreventionDay. really i just wanna say that when my mind was super dark and hopeless, there was a part of me that felt safe being cynical & shut down. im trying to get healthier now… and it’s a lifestyle shift. sometimes it feels uncomfortable…
and i don’t always do it well… but i hope that if you struggle with darkness that you will try and remember to let yourself feel joy when it comes. im trying too. sometimes i feel like i probably look less “cool” or i worry that i’m somehow faking it.
but! i try hard to call out and recognize joy when i feel it, or even when i see it on my friends. thankful for any chance to feel a genuine smile… not only on my face but deeper than that. if you feel darkness, i hope you’ll wait for joy. it will come again and it is worth it.”
