I hear so many of you guys say "you saved my life" but I just want all of you to know, that, I am so thankful that I may have inspired you, but you saved your own life. If anyone who is out there in recovery, whether it’s from an eating disorder, substance abuse, drugs & alcohol, whether its self harm, if you’re being bullied, no matter what you’re going through, this tonight is your escape. It’s your escape, and… and every night I have a chance to not only tell the people out there that are struggling, that are younger, young adults out there, but, I always wanna say parents; lets take the tabloids stigma away from things like eating disorders, and self harm, and mental illnesses. We can take the stigma out of it, so that we can do something about it. Please help your children get help. Everyone can get help, if they want it, and everyone can be in recovery if they want it. I’m talking so raw right now, anyways, I just wanted you guys to remember that you’re all beautiful, you’re all worthy of life, and love. If you think that you don’t have any friends, and that nobody loves you, I love you, and I love you a lot. So, thank you for everything, and always remember that, it works if you work it.
