Hello if you are depressed please read this :) <3


Depression  

I may not be a good writer, I have written a few short stories before just a child play can’t say I have grown much but I felt the urge of writing down what I feel and maybe this might help someone in the future, because now I have a whole new point of view over depression and people suffering from it.

Now I have suffered from depression for a while, I feel like it’s only getting worse over the years, I have felt the pain and the struggles. I know how it feels to have no one around when you are down to have that urge for pain and I know you do too or else you wouldn’t be reading this, But I am here to tell you that it’s not too late being depressed is not as bad as it seems like anything else depression has its own pros and cons, now I know it’s hard to be-lieve depression has an advantage of any type but believe me it has one, a really beautiful one that our world needs.

Let’s talk about the cons and how to deal with them first, I know it must be hard to hide it, hiding it was the most difficult stage I went through wearing masks to hide the pain, sleeves for the cuts, smiles for the tears and finally a poker face so others won’t pity you. I hid it for about 2 years but one day I decided to tell my sister, it wasn’t easy for me and I can’t prom-ise it will be any easier for you but when I told my sister I felt a huge relief, I knew she would judge me can’t say she didn’t but she’s trying her best to help me get through with it so if you have anyone close to you please do yourself a favor and tell them believe me I know how scary it is, they are going to find out you can’t hide anything forever so its best if you come clean and say it, a few weeks later my mother found out she saw the cuts and to my surprise all she did was worry about me and talk to me about it, she didn’t get mad just sup-portive and if your mother doesn’t react the same way and is being forceful please show her this, being forceful will only trigger it more you can’t hide sharp objects a replacement can be easily found all we need is support and for someone to actually be there trust me, I know sometimes you do not want to tell that person what is going on with you even if he/she are supportive, sometimes pain is the only way we feel alive I know, and there is no wrong in that I don’t mean it is right to cause pain for yourself but I won’t tell you to stop its actually impossible its sort of worse than nicotine once you start you can’t really stop unless you know what triggers it, so what triggers it for you? Is it inability to talk back because you feel like you will break down? Is it because people are bullying you? Do you feel ugly or fat? Is it a trauma? Well guess what you can solve everything by expressing it don’t be afraid to cry, crying is actually what a strong person would do, let me tell you this the next time someone bullies you, you fight back don’t be afraid that it will grow stronger get a person you trust, anyone is fine just someone to hug you and tell you it will be okay, if it’s the inability to talk back trust me you should, its easier said than done but even if you break down in tears and cry you will feel better when it’s done and you won’t feel the urge to cut believe it or not crying is another way to stop cutting people usually cut to express what’s held inside and crying will relieve you even more. If you feel fat or ugly always remember there might be 
people out there with face burns, inability, too skinny, health issues believe me there are worse cases so just believe in yourself, in your beauty because you are beautiful no matter what anyone says and finally if it is a trauma, you have to face it I know you think it’s easier to just keep dealing with it as you are now but once you face it, nothing will scare you any-more you will feel super you will shine brighter than you are shinning now you will feel like a better person, you will look back and wander why where you ever scared of that.

Way too many cons huh? Pros aren’t much at all I won’t even lie but believe me they mean a lot. Over the past few years I have met people of all sorts and personalities and I have fi-nally realized depressed people are the best type of friends you will ever make, depressed people have felt a lot of pain, pain that they wouldn’t want others to feel so they help you when you are down even though they are suffering themselves, depressed people laugh a lot even at the most random things because they have felt real pain, they give out positive vibes that anyone would immediately love and they would never leave you alone when in a bad situation, depressed people aren’t fake, ugly, fat or disgusting. They are true, honest, caring and beautiful inside and out our world is full of evil, ever wondered why you’re still alive? Why you have emotions? Well dear it is because our world needs your kind hearts, hearts that have felt the worst type of pain and suffer are actually so warm and generous, depressed people are the sweetest because they deeply care, so here it is for you depres-sion is actually a beautiful thing that makes our world a better place no matter how much you hate it, so please do not cry or hate on yourself, this world really needs you, we need you.
