Hey, Jamarcus, I'm Christabel.

Depression can make you feel like there's nothing to live for, but that's a lie. There's a lot to live for. There's a whole world out there filled with opportunities, chances and great things waiting to happen. Of course life isn't all lolly pops and butterflies but sometimes life can be really great because there's always a rainbow after the storm. Always a sign of hope deep down. Suicide is just not the way out because it not only hurts you, but everyone around you. You are loved. You gotta keep in mind that all these tough times we go through, there's always a way to get past them and afterwards, we feel so much better and stronger. Every time we're weak, we gain strength. There's so much more to life than what you're going through right now. Like the chance for children, dating, marriage, so many amazing moments big and small that are so good, so good that you shouldn't miss out on them.

Can you talk to a therapist about what's bothering you? Or family, friends, relatives, siblings, anyone. A good support system could really benefit you right now. I understand how scary it is talking to someone and opening up but it's so worth it in the end.

To recover, you have to wanna recover. I know that's hard but it's true. Try to focus on the positives rather than the bad and point out good things about yourself. All the little things contribute. And I know when you're feeling horrible, it can be really difficult to get up and moving, but it's important because it gets you pumped up and you just sorta disagree with what depression wants you to do- sit and do nothing and be sad. Let's not listen to that. Go out, meet new people randomly, do something fun, go to the cinema, play sports, go biking, watch tv/movies, listen to music, play games. Any distractions help. And I must mention that taking a walk outside would be very refreshing and when you're inside during the day, keep your window shades open because the sun naturally increases a positive chemical in your brain.

I want you to know that your life is precious, every form of life is special which includes you. Remind yourself that things get better with time, you can do this. Hang in there. I'm here if you need me! Feel free to message me anytime, I'd love to get to know you.

Stay Strong <3
