"Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don’t believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it’s good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason."
when the solutions to a medical problem are “reduce stress” i am like? what am i going to do about this????? not go to school?? get rid of my parents??? force myself deeper down the road of total and complete apathy???
"But when your bereft of all dignity there’s no sense in faking it. So instead of venting my anger, which is really just hurt dressed up for a night on the town, I ask if anyone needs a drink."
"I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions."
