dear you... - June 1st 2011, 09:02 PM

dear you, the person feeling depressed.

first of all, know that you're going to make it in life. it doesn't seem like it at the moment, but you're going to make it, and you're going to come out of this even stronger than you were before.

secondly, know that somebody loves you. oh, you don't believe it? look around. it's true, someone really DOES love you.

third, I know it's hard for you to pick yourself up to do anything. I know you probably don't have any motivation, and everything gets on your nerves, and you really don't want to keep going. but once you take that first step, you'll find it gets easier and easier to live out your life. try a baby step. even if you fall, you won't fall far.

and lastly, remember that you're not alone. You're never alone. If you've looked at any of the forums here, you'll know that.

Keep going. If it gets unbearable, feel free to pm me.
Just don't give up.

searching for myself...
and hugs. mostly hugs.

Thats a really sweet letter, thanks. I love the way you said "oh, you don't believe it? look around. it's true, someone really DOES love you." That's exactly what I was thinking when I read it.

That was lovely. Thank you for writing that, I'm sure it will help some people on here who feel like that is it. <3

Thank you so much for writing this. These are the exact things that I usually feel. This is going to be a great post to come back to when I'm feeling really down. (:

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life." --John Lennon

"What matters isn't that you fell, but that you got back up. No matter how many times it takes, it's that you get back up. We fall down and all isn't lost." --Renee Yohe
