A Moment To Reflect

It's important to have self belief

1. My Life

I stood there on the edge of the cliff crying. I could so easily jump, I mean what was there to live for. Everyone that I loved had died.

Kevin, Jake, James and now Charlie. I could be next.

So why was it so hard for me to jump. I closed my eyes and began to sing, I thought about falling like a feather so gracefully. I could be that feather, all I needed to do was jump .

Just at that moment my best friend Cris shouted my name and I turned me head, I quickly turned back to hide my eyes.

"What, Cris go away. Please I just need to think"

"If I leave you you'll jump. You're too proud El, just give up. Everything will turn out well, you know it will, I know you can feel it. That little spark inside you is still there just believe it, please El don't give up. Step away please" Cris said he was pleading me to step away from the cliff.

"I could do it Cris, then I'd be with them. Cris why do I feel so empty" I tried not to cry as I was already shaking.

"I know my dear but it will get better. I promise, I know you feel empty now but I know you can do it. You can get better just believe you can please El. Everyone will help you get through this."

"There isn't anybody else" there wasn't that was the truth in my mind.

"Yes there is. Jack, me, Tim, Nate, Your parents"

"They don't count" I said turning around and taking a step forward.

"El You have parents! Tim isn't even my real dad! Do you know how horrible it is, being sat down by the one person who makes you feel safe and being told that they aren't the person you thought they were. I know you feel crap, you feel like the whole sun has just blown up and the world is crumbling around you, and you feel empty but I promise it gets better. Please Ellie, you know you can do this" Cris said getting aggravated.


I knew he was right what's the point. I should believe in myself, the world will get better.

I can get better I knew I could but just like Cris said, I'm too proud. I didn't want to admit that I could get better.

"Cris help me. I know I can do it but I cant"

"Tell me why you cant"

"There isn't anybody left. My best friends are dead, Jacks twin. What if next time its Jasper. I cant loose my twin I've already lost my brother, Cris I cant lose Jasper not after seeing Jack. He's just numb it's like he's died with him even you know he's not been the same since the crash."

"For god sake Ellie!" he shouted and I took a step back.

A bit too far as I lost my foot and began to fall. Cris ran forward and grabbed my arm and pulled me back. I fell on him and we both cried. I didn't want to jump. I just had to believe in myself.

"Let's go home" He whispered to me into my hair. I nodded and then he helped me up and took me home.

The next day we went to the hospital and I got help. Two months later my life was back to normal with the help of all the people that love me.

And trust me there are more than you think. There are always people who love you they just stand in the shadows until you need them. Then they appear.

It was hard. Feeling that nothing would go right but it gets better all.

All I had to do was believe.
