I’m glad you decided to make such thread ^^. I think it’s a good idea, because mental health is not something we talk a lot. Sure, it’s not a mental health forum, but if any of you guys have problems, or want help or just need to talk to someone, it’s always good to turn to a professionnal. I’ve been there, I’m still there, and it’s OKAY to ask for help when you’ve reach the abyss. Don’t let yourself in the shadows, seek help before it’s too late.
Nowadays, mental health problems is still taboo. I’m glad to see a thread on here about it.
So yeah, if you’re not feeling well, feeling depressed, don’t hesitate to ask for help, or visit a clinic or hospital. It could really save your life. It happened to me, and I’m much much better today. I never visited the hospital for 9 years now.
Yes, sometimes I still feel bad. Yes sometimes I have hard days or hard weeks, but I reach out for help, and I can take care of myself more often.
So, you can do it, whoever reads that, there’s light at the end of the tunnel, trust me, life can be beautiful and happiness can be found in little things, such as playing your favorite music cd, or dvd, or play a game, or just talk to a friend. Happiness is not a constant state of mind, it’s what you build in what you love to do in life. Sure, it gets lonely sometimes, you wish you had that or that, but just being alive is a GIFT. Never give up on your life, always go forward and keep on living
Your life worths more than any other life, never give up on it. YOU are the most important person to yourself. Even if you’re 30, 40, 50, you can change your state of mind. It’s possible.
Tl;dr : Seek help if needed, it’s okay to do so, don’t give up on life ^^
