A few years ago I was not mentally well.
I was pretty depressed and suffered from a lot of anxiety. I tried not showing it, so I wrote my feelings down instead.
I also hurt myself a few times, something I'm not proud of.
Today I found a note I had written when I was at my worst.
The note was about something I had almost forgotten.
It mentioned how awful I felt back then, how I was so unhappy that I was actually considering taking my own life.
Now why am I writing about this?
Because as clichéed it might sound, things do get better!
I know everybody is saying it, but they're saying it because it's true.
I was on the verge of suicide, but today, just a few years later, I am living a happy life. I may not have a lot of friends, but the ones I do have are amazing. The future is looking brighter than ever and I am so thankful I didn't take my life back then.
Things will always manage to get better, but you also have to let them.
So I'm writing this post because I wish people were more open about things like these.
Everybody has suffered in one way or another, and if everyone stopped pretending their lives are so perfect, we all might realize how much we actually have in common with each other.
