get to know me; 5/5 favorite movies: Dead Poets Society.

Truth. Truth is like, like a blanket that always leaves your feet cold. You push it, stretch it, it’ll never be enough. You kick at it, beat it, it’ll never cover any of us. From the moment we enter crying to the moment we leave dying, it will just cover your face as you wail and cry and scream.

Don’t you forget this.

i think i have clinical severe depression and i dont know what to do. im scared to tell my mom and its not like i want to take meds for it bc i dont want to become reliant on them but i dont want to continue to live my life like this. ik you struggled with depression or something like this before too so i was wondering if you have any advice?

i’m not sure if i’m the right one to talk about this bc i was never properly diagnosed (just my therapist being like: you have depression.), but other than the whole “keep your head up” and “it gets better” advice (which i know sucks and sometimes it doesn’t get better like at all whatsoever but i got really lucky and for me it is kinda slowly getting better) i honestly would suggest talking to someone

it doesn’t have to be a parent or a “trusted adult” or whatever but there are a lot of anonymous and free counselling places (i’m not sure if you live in my city but if you do just send me another message and i can hit you up with some resources i’ve used) or even just a friend where it feels really good to let it out

if you’re able to talk to your doctor i personally would really recommend going on meds (again though they’re totally not for everybody) or even like probiotics (i’m not sure if this’d work financially for you but if you’re in canada most of the time it’s covered by insurance and has the same confidentiality as birth control etc. so your parents wouldn’t have to know)

i know that stuff can be really, really hard and i’m so sorry that you have to go through this and if you feel comfortable sending me a message off anon i’m here to talk whenever you need to and offer any advice and support i can!

i think probably the most reassuring thing that someone ever told me when i was doing really bad was that we have forever to be dead and only day by day to live and i’m not sure why but that really helped me

good luck my friend and if you need anything at all i’m here
