Has two close friends with depression and can think of another seven in the grade who also do. That’s me.
Knows three people who have attempted suicide, five who have slit their wrists, a girl who had such a bad panic attack she almost died, three people who have starved themselves. That’s me.
Only knows these few struggles of a few people. Knows there are probably countless more thirteen year olds who have to battle their own inner demons on a daily basis. Thanks God everyday that she doesn’t know what these demons look like and hopes she never has to. That’s me.
Wishes she could just help take away her friends pain but can’t because she doesn’t have the slightest idea what it feels like but she wishes she oh so wishes that she could somehow convince everyone that they matter because they do they all do. She believes any person anywhere can and will bring value to the world when given a chance if only we could make them see that. No one deserves to die! That’s me.
