DAY 2 Upward-Facing Plank Pose
I was never more alone in my life. I was in trouble with the law. I was addicted to prescription drugs. I got pulled over for drunk driving and was thrown in a jail cell. I was there for half of a day, which felt like eternity. But the real problem was what was happening inside of me. I had so much guilt. I was hurting. Instead of asking for help, I dove deeper into the abyss of addiction. It was such a dark place that I’m lucky to be alive today.
I was clinically depressed and searching for a way out. One day, the depression was so intense that I drove to a liquor store, bought a fifth of whiskey, and prepared to kill myself. I wrote notes to everyone I ever hurt. Tears rolled down my face. I cut my wrist. I never wanted to come back. I didn’t do it for attention. I did it because I didn’t want to be here. I was hurting inside.
I woke up the next day and a bed sheet had stopped the bleeding. I was left in disbelief.
What am I supposed to do now, I thought? I felt like I a failure. I had never hit such an emotional bottom. I was lost. Today, I’m grateful to be alive. Through the Trini Foundation, I’m trying to reach as many people as I can to help them find their way out, just as I did. 📸 @tiagophotofilm ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
