I’ll Stand By You


This post is dedicated to you.  You, yes, you…you are special and wanted enough for me (a complete stranger who has never met you in person) to dedicate this entry to you.

Since September, I have been blogging about my hardships with depression/grief/abandonment.  And you, dear readers, were/are supportive.  You liked, commented, followed, and even emailed advice, or just to check in on me.  I appreciate this so much and want you all to know that your words and likes, and even your reads, have worked together with my faith to save my very life.  Some of you had said just the right thing to me that stopped me from going after the razor to cut or going deeper into the hole of depression.  You have been wonderful support to me and I love you so much for that.  Thank you all for helping save my life as I go through this.  ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I so want to return the favor to you.  No matter what battle you fight.  Depression…anxiety…grieving…you name it.  We are all here for you.  And most importantly, I am here for you.  I heard this song today and I dedicate it to you.  Hang in there and remember, even though I don’t know you or you know me, we CAN and DO save each others lives through writing about our own experiences.  Keep on keeping on and hang in there.  ❤

The song featured is that of Stand by You by Rachel Platten.  Here are the lyrics:

Stand by You

Hands, put your empty hands in mine
And scars, show me all the scars you hide
And hey, if your wings are broken
Please take mine so yours can open too
Cause I’m gonna stand by you
Oh, tears make kaleidoscopes in your eyes
And hurt, I know you’re hurting, but so am I
And love, if your wings are broken
Borrow mine ’til yours can open too
Cause I’m gonna stand by you

Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, cause I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, cause I’m gonna stand by you

Yeah, you’re all I never knew I needed
And the heart, sometimes it’s unclear why it’s beating
And love, if your wings are broken
We can brave through those emotions too
Cause I’m gonna stand by you
Oh, truth, I guess truth is what you believe in
And faith, I think faith is having a reason
Nah, nah, nah, love, if your wings are broken
Borrow mine ’til yours can open too
Cause I’m gonna stand by you

Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, cause I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, cause I’m gonna stand by you

I’ll be your eyes ’til yours can shine
I’ll be your arms, I’ll be your steady satellite
And when you can’t rise, well, I’ll crawl with you on hands and knees
Cause I…
(I’m gonna stand by you)

Even if we’re breaking down, we can find a way to break through (come on)
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, cause I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’m gonna stand by you
Even if we can’t find heaven, I’ll walk through Hell with you
Love, you’re not alone, cause I’m gonna stand by you
Love, you’re not alone
Oh I’m gonna stand by you
(Even if we can’t find heaven, heaven, heaven)
Yeah I’m gonna stand by you
