I can’t wait for the day that instead of “It’s late, I have to go.” you will say “It’s late, let’s go to bed.”
Depression is not being sad about not being able to find an outfit to wear to a party.
It is not changing your clothes for 3 days because you can’t bear to leave the house, let alone get out of bed.
Suicidal thoughts are not wanting to kill yourself because you see someone wearing the same outfit as you.
It’s seeing simple everyday things like rope, a knife, a freeway, or pills and thinking that you should kill yourself with them because you just can’t take the pain anymore.
Anxiety is not just being scared for an exam.
It is not being able to make a phone call or feeling so sick from worry for no reason.
Anorexia is not simply forgetting to eat breakfast.
It is dry skin, hair falling out, hospitals and inner torture. It is forcing yourself to have water instead of food, because even fruit has too many calories.
Bipolar is not being really happy for one day, then feeling normal the next.
It is going from euphoria, having your mind racing with rapid speech, to feeling like you want to jump off a bridge.
Retardation is not doing something silly.
It is falling behind in school, not being able to adapt in new situations and having little social skills.
So please don’t take mental illnesses lightly;
they are one of the heaviest burdens to bear.
I know that I’m hard to love. On some days, I’ll be all smiles and affection and on other days, there’s nothing I want more than to be alone.
Sometimes I’ll get angry over stupid things and will refuse to be loveable. But almost always, I’ll think you’re perfect.
Please don’t give up on me. I know it’s not easy but I’ll always come back to you."
no one ever likes me as much as i like them
do you ever wonder how many people have had a crush on you and never told you
there’s a lot of unspoken pressure to keep liking the things you used to like and to keep dressing the way you’ve always dressed and to never question what you believe in and basically “be yourself” has slowly morphed into “be what everyone knows you as” but trust me when i say if you just give it up and simply make decisions and take actions based purely on what would make you happy, you’ll gain a very comforting sense of self peace
do you ever just wonder if there’s someone who secretly thinks about you and wants to talk to you but doesn’t know how
