Loving someone with depression is hard. No matter the day you're having you must smile and wear your brave face because all it takes is one moment of weakness to set them back. Forget about birthday's, anniversaries, or celebrations because something bigger, darker is filling their soul. Kind gestures go unnoticed because they are already carrying the world. And now it's your job to take hold of that world and carry it like it's nothing and you'll shove every ounce of emotion, good and bad, that you bare so deep into your soul, it will only come out through silent tears in the lonliest kind of darkness. You'll tiptoe on eggshells. And when you slip, because you will, the horrible names won't stop. And when that fist makes the insufferable connection you'll crumble. But if a single tear falls or yelp cries out in desperation it will set it all back. So you must take a deep breath and wear your bravest face.
I just realized something amazing.I was always drawn to Steve Rogers as a character, his story spoke volumes to me and haven't realized why until this moment: He was told that he wouldn't be good enough in the military. I'm told that on the daily, yet that is my dream. He goes in anyway and proves everyone wrong.While he gets the Super Soldier Serum and becomes much stronger it symobolizes to me that pursuing your dreams makes you stronger. So this blew my mind.Captain America is not only a hero but an inspiration to me.
Be strong like a Ox But be grcefull like a Fox Be stubborn like a Cat But playfull as a Puppy Fit in like a Camelion But stand out like a Lion in a sheep heard Be with others like a Wolf But be lone like a Bear Be strong Be gentle Be stubborn Be playful Fit in Stand out Have lots of friends Have true friends BE YOU

I hope that someday you find someone that gives you butterflies the moment you meet them. And that the first time you touch, it feels like electricity is running through your body. I hope that when you're with them, you never want to leave. I hope you are the first and last thing they think about every day. I hope you play it cool in front of people, but can't keep your hands off each other in private. I hope that when you give them you your heart, they don't break it. I hope that the things they tell you aren't just things you want to hear, but things they want to say. I hope that you fit in their arms better than the last piece of a puzzle, and that you always feel safe when they hold you. I hope that when you fight, you fight hard, but that when you love, you love harder. I hope that once you find them, you can't picture your life without them. I hope that they take your breath away. I hope that, together, you create happiness. I hope that with them, you're not afraid of the future, but excited for it. I hope that, every day, they tell you how much they love you. I hope that when you find them, you realize if before it's too late. I hope that you take them and love them and never let them go. I hope you find it. -Lauren M. Smith

I started journaling. I bought a ukuelele (it was stringed incorrectly and I learned three chords left-handed without realising). I deleted all the pictures off my phone (they're backed up online). I opened my YouTube channel again. I rediscovered my adoration for poetry. I fell in love with yellow. I made the decision I am a happy person (who happens to have depression right now). I spent £40 on crappy lipsticks. I apologised to someone I fought with a year ago (because I finally learned the truth and it turns out at the time I was wrong). I deleted most of my online accounts. I adopted a sweet resue cat (and developed severe allergies). I moved out to a flat where I live alone. I flew on six different airplanes. I know I haven't been around on witty much lately, but don't worry. I may not always be okay; I may cry from stress or freeze in a moment, but if I'm overwhelmed because I'm living too much... that's okay with me. :)
“ you are whole without him. You are a being all on your own, a light, a presence, an existence. You are a strong soul, no matter how broken you may feel. You are you, completely, regardless of where he fits or used to fit into your life. You are a combination of all the lessons you’ve learned, all the feelings you’ve felt, all the choices you’ve made, all the things you’ve said, all of the battles you’ve fought, all the love you’ve given and received. And being with him, or not being with him, will never take any of that away from you. —Kim Quindlen ”
