So, my depressions started when i was about 13yrs old and continued for years, time in which i had to deal not only with them, but also with failure, disappointment, a rape and the fear of cancer. They all piled up at about 17 when i started harming myself, not to gain attention, but to relieve the pain inside. It took me a great deal of effort to put up a normal mask for those around me. I didn't trust people around me enough to talk about my problems, so i started drinking and somehow it made things bearable for a while.
But when i reached 18 i realized i was on my way to self destruction and i said "stop". I just erased everything from my mind and started living again. But the bad things in my life didn't end here, recently due to a family problem i fell into a depression so deep i couldn't even move from my bed. I found a new way to deal with my emotional pain: food. After 2 months i decided i needed help. After 2 psychiatrists, 1 psychologist, a 6 month tough treatment that initially turned me into a vegetable and a fight against my new gained weight, i am ok again.
I am not weak, and no one thought i was; everyone understood that what i suffered from was real condition and no one blamed me for going to specialists. From my point of view, it takes a strong person to admit that they need help. When i look back i don't regret having to go through all those dark times, because they made me who i am today, they gave me a better understanding of the world and also, most important, it made me realize what really matters in life.
Just because some jerks have wronged you and made you suffer doesn't mean all people are the same. Just because one of my ex bfs raped me doesn't mean that all will do the same, in fact, my boyfriend (and future fiance) is my ray of sunshine everyday; just because my father left my family doesn't mean i should live in fear that all the men in my life will abandon me at some point.
NO! It just means that somehow, this was supposed to happen so you can become the person you are now. For me, all that has happened so far in my life means a lot, not only because it caused me a great deal of pain - i'm over that now, but because it opened new paths for me, it made me grow up and it made me truly appreciate life and people that make it worth living.
My point is, cherish life, even if you feel down; no matter how bad is the situation you are in, there's always a way out of it. And don't be afraid to talk about your problems. Stay positive
~FabulousLittleFlower "This is AWESOME!"
=mangasockattack"When life gets tough, when life seems hopeless, like the bad parts will never end, just look up and smile. There is a peak to EVERY mountain, and you will fine yours!
A friend of mine made this:
( you should add it!)
^ValaSedai "Life has been quite tough for me over the last few years with a few particularly bad moments and I still have times when I feel pretty down and demotivated frequently but whenever I go outside to a nearby park or even when I just simply open my window and the fresh cold air hits my face and I breathe in all the wonderful scents in the fresh air I remember why I live and why I love life. Nature in all its beauty, with all the fantastic moments it grants me, the freedom it makes me experience, with all the inspiration I can draw from it is most definitely one of the best reasons to be alive."
=wdnest "Wonderful - If we could only live to 1000."
:devassaveraveta: "Whenever you're feeling down,you should always think of something positive,change your mood - and you will see how your situation will change for the better~ <3"
~x-VivaerethAlonia-x "Don't rush through life, or you'll find yourself passing by the most beautiful moments."
*8-BitQuilter " Life is an amazing gift, not one that should be squandered or destroyed. Many people are unhappy with their own lifestyles, and fail to realize the joy of just being alive. God gave us life, and we shouldn't waste it. We should respect it."
!Kleyntjie "Happiness is an inside job, though don't be afraid to let some outside help in. "
=Mommy-of-Ein "Life is worth living, even if its just the little things that make you stop and smile."
`Nameda "I was thinking on the saying which is known to most Kung Fu Panda though Its only a shortened version of the saying which I know for a decade by Alice Morse Earle from 1902 though its origins are said to pre-date way earlier
"The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present."
Another favourite one is A day without a smile is a lost day by Charlie Chaplin.
And the 4 letter code IDIC from ST Infinite diversity in infinite combination which equals tolerance (in my opinion)
and last but not least froG... nope not the animal but the abbreviation of fully rely on God, ... something which is often really really hard to do. specially if life it throwing lemons at you... and worse"
!SongOfLives "Be someone who could change the world one person at time....starting with yourself."
=Royal-Demon "Last year, I had probably the hardest time of my short teenage-life. No friends and my family made a big fuss about me being an atheist and wanting to quit my confirmation.
But instead of thinking that it would have been better if those things never happend, they play an important role in my life. Even if this might sound a little bit cheesy, it made me stronger and independent. Those 'traumas' (if you want to call it like that) made me how I am today. Without those experiences, maybe I would be the same insecure, annoyig brat I was before.
I learned to accept - no, to LOVE myself for who I am.
And no matter how bad your current situation looks like, how unfair other people are to you, as long as you love yourself, you can share this love and receive even more!"
