For Those Going Into Middle or High School
Here are a few helpful tips to remember, that will serve you quite well.
And most importantly, enjoy yourself. It may seem like you have time to waste, but you really don’t. Before you know it, the school year will be over, so just slow down, take in the scenery, and don’t take life too seriously.
Remember, depression is a monstrous weight to bear. And sometimes, that weight becomes much too heavy for one person to bear all alone. It doesn’t mean you are incapable of helping yourself, it just means you are tired from how long you have been carrying the unnecessary weight. After a while, fatigue takes over. So let yourself take a break from bearing all of the weight of depression and reach out, whether to a family member, a friend, a helpline, or a professional.
Just don’t feel like you have to deal with depression on your own, and don’t feel like you are weak if you are unable to pull yourself out of it. You’re human. We get tired. We need help, and we need to provide others with help.
I am seriously SO FUCKING PROUD of you for getting out of bed today.
"If I ask you what you love, the answers will likely roll off your tongue;
you love to read,
you love to write,
you love birds,
your best friend,
How long do you think you could go on and on before you said,
“I love myself.”"
