You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
I almost had a nervous breakdown last night
More on that later. Now, let’s go to work because that’s just what my mental health needs.
“Life is beautiful. Really, it is. Full of beauty and illusions. Life is great. Without it, you’d be dead.”
Gummo (1997) dir. Harmony Korine
Saw this movie when I was about 12 or 13 and couldn’t remember what it was called. Been looking for it ever since.
There’s a car in the driveway, ‘just drive’ she said. There’s a train downtown we can hop right on and get out of here. We’ve been running away from things we can’t control, we can never settle down. We’re always scared our hearts will stop beating

These are the ones I get often:
- You’re too young to be depressed
- Why don’t you just think of something else?
- Depression? But you’re really funny! How can you be depressed if you’re funny?
- Have you tried praying?
