Okay, okay. We’ve all (most likely) dealt with depression, so don’t think you’re alone. I’m a thirteen year old girl who has personally dealt with a lot of depression.
Now, I’m going tell you a little bit about how/why my depression started, and how I overcame it.
A few years back, I lost my Grandparents. I honestly felt like I lost myself. They meant everything to me, they were always there for me. When they passed away, they were all I ever thought about, I couldn’t focus on anything else. All I did was grieve. A few years later, my dad left (for personal reasons I can’t exactly explain) but I was scared more than anything because I felt like I was losing everyone. Thinking about others leaving my side started to really get to me. But I never talked to anyone about how I felt.
I bottled up all these feelings, which led me to my depression. It got worse and worse, I didn’t quite know what do anymore. I felt alone, Invisible, and weak. It soon got to a point where I wanted to hurt myself because of dealing with fake friends, lies, deaths, and arguments. I told my parents, they sent me to a therapist. At first, I didn’t want to share anything at all with this person. I had a hard time trusting others, but I started sharing more and more each time I went. The therapist had me do exercises to overcome my depression. Honestly, It didn’t really work. But talking about these things with someone you trust, DOES work.
Expressing yourself to someone who you know won’t say anything to anyone is a great thing for someone who used to not want to talk to anyone, you know instead of having all these feelings bottled up and having it become a bigger deal. Yes, everyone is different. Maybe people don’t agree with me on this, but going to a therapist is a really good thing. Not just for expressing yourself but for little exercises that could help too! Even though not many worked for me, it doesn’t mean it can’t work for others. Even if it means looking into purchasing the best cbd gummies on the market, to help manage the symptoms of depression, if you find that it works for you, then you’re heading in the right direction. We will all find a solution that will mean not having to live with depression for much longer. It will take time, but it will all be worth it in the long run. One thing you should remember though is that you should never think you are the only one going through something like this, even if it does feel like you are alone. You are not and there is someone out there going through the same exact feeling.
Depression is hard to deal with, but talking to the right person makes it much easier.
You’re not alone if you’re dealing with depression, you can kick it’s ass! You’ve got this, You’re strong, You’re amazing, and YOU have the power to end depression!
