You Do Matter
Yeah, you, you matter. Depression is a terrible thing, it overwhelms your state of mind with thoughts of neglect, terrible memories, and sometimes when it gets even worse, suicide. You may feel alone in this world, or like you have nowhere to run to when the darkness gets just a little too deep, but that is far from the truth. Matter of fact, you are never alone. There is always someone, somewhere that cares about you. Whether it be your mother/father or your best friend, they are there and would do anything to see you smile and be able to see you again. Imagine the look on your best friend’s face when they wake up and find out you’re gone and they will never be able to laugh at the stupid inside jokes or look back on the memories the two of you created. Imagine the tears that will stream down your parents cheeks when they find out that the person they brought into this world and cared about more than anything else thought they weren’t good enough so they took the easy way out. I promise you that you are good enough, even when you feel as if you can’t do anything right. Suicide is a permanent answer to a temporary issue. There is light at the end of the tunnel. You will see the positives, but you have to believe in yourself. After all, you are the only person in this world that can truly make you happy. I promise you whether you are 16 years old or 42 years old there is still a positive reward waiting for you once you overcome this feeling of emptiness. You have to look into yourself to find the answers, the answers that will help you pass the test and make it back to your high road. Dysphoria is only in your mind. You need to find how to clear your mind to make it easier to get that sensation of euphoria. Don’t spend all this time of your life prolonging your depression over one issue - move on, know that you are better than what happened, that it was just a simple mistake, and everything in this world happens for one reason or another.
