    be better

    So, last year, in October, I had tried to commit suicide. I had a friend who had reported it to the councelor at school, and I got the help I needed. though it ended with me going to a mental hospital, i am now a year and a little over three months since that incident. I have learned to cope and live with the constant thoughts of negativity, and now I am trying to help others through their times, especially seeing that I have myself gone through tough times. i want ya'll to know that ya'll are not alone, and it's ok to not be ok. If ya'll need someone to talk to here, i am here for you. #StayStrong #BeStrong

    my quick answers to strangers’ questions :)

    just wanted to share that I FINALLY figured out a short, not too personal way of answering questions from strangers. I wear a c-collar nearly 24/7, and sometimes use a mobility aid, so I get a lot of strangers asking me “what happened?”. Ive learned that the easiest way for me to answer that is to just say “oh, just faulty genetics.” I sort of laugh it off, and smile (I also use humor as a coping mechanism, but this just works so well… lol!). They aren’t entitled to any answer at all really, but I find this is often enough to end the conversation in a friendly way. Sometimes though (if I’m feeling up to it), it provides space to teach someone new about EDS, which can be really neat!

    No matter how difficult things become, I will never give up.Great faces of depression

    Sadness is but a wall between two gardens." "There is hope, even when your brain tells you there isn't." "Getting better from depression demands a lifelong commitment. I've made that commitment for my life's sake and for the sake of those who love me

    I wish to start this day with self-love.☺️☺️

    I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.

    Never stop fighting!!💪💪

    Never stop fighting until you arrive at your destined place - that is, the unique you. Have an aim in life, continuously acquire knowledge, work hard, and have perseverance to realise the great life. There is no substitute for hard work. Never give up.
