Last June after graduation, I started to have my first inklings of becoming really depressed. I started to become suicidal and having these thoughts. I ended up reaching out to my best friend who always knows how to help me. I talk a lot about my best friend. She was my teacher first and foremost, and then my best friend, and also like an aunt and another mother figure for me.
If it wasn’t for her being there for me and helping me, I don’t think I would be here getting help right now. She was and is always there for me and I think over the last few months, our relationship has strengthened. She wants the best for me and I’m so glad that I reached out to her, and eventually to my mom. I cannot stress enough that if you are struggling, if you feel like you cannot take it anymore, please reach out to someone. Things get better. They do get better. I never thought they would, but they do. Things get better, and you should be here to see it happen.
Please do not give up on yourself or life. Life really is a amazing thing. Even though there are super hard things that come up, in the end it is so worth it. You have to go through something bad to get something good. That’s how it is in the world and it SUCKS! But believe me, the outcome of something terrible is something beautiful.
I love you.
