One of the things I hate most is how, with depression, the tiniest things can seem to take insane amounts of energy. Like a phone call. Or a shower. Or feeding yourself.
I mean, getting food is enough work. But then I just sometimes look down at a plate and think “Fuck, now I’ve got to actually chew food?” and just the thought of it is so exhausting. It’s so dumb.
Communicate. That’s the biggest and best first thing you can ever do. Whether it be with a teacher, sibling, friend, parent or even a counselor. Being able to communicate is the first step to your life getting better. It doesn’t have to be even talking; it can be a letter or email or text…let people know what’s going on in your life, your thoughts and emotions.
People can and will help you, you just need to search them out. Oh and one last thing, never EVER let someone bring you down. You’re you, and you is always good enough. Never stray from who you are because you never know who will come along and want and love “you”.
