It was school dress code but nice choice of words.
Apologies for the terrible image quality - I’m lacking scanner access at the minute so I had to take these photos on my phone
I was reading hyperbole and a half’s blog entry explaining their experience of depression and decided to make another sketchy comic based on my experiences with anxiety, which is another mental illness I think people tend to misunderstand quite frequently
Hopefully this will be of use to some people - whether they suffer from anxiety themselves or if they just want to know more about it
I think your prom dress would have looked better without that tutu thing between your boobs
Theres a quote that goes something like, “do something for someone that they can never repay you for.”
I always thought that was so far away for me.. that I could never in a million years mean that much to someone.
A few weeks ago I unknowingly saved one of my best friends life. I prevented her from taking her life and I found out by a letter she wrote to my dad who is also her teacher.
I have never felt so whole in my life that im crying.
At the time, all I thought I was doing was just letting her cry on my shoulder and sharing a couple of my stories dealing with depression. I tried my best to tell her that it gets better because im living proof.
Im having a hard time writing this right now. All I know is that my past year’s and sometimes present moments of heartache, pain, dark thoughts, and sleepless nights is all so completely worth it. I did something for someone that they can never repay me for… and I’m so glad I did.
sometimes i wonder if i hadn’t done one small action if things would be different. our lives are summed up components of actions we took, things we have said, and small things we have done.
if i had not gone out that night with my sisters, if i had not rode the hayride, if i had not gotten the nerve to take his arm for shelter in the scary maze.. things would be much different.
everything we have ever done leads us to where we are now. that scares me. i dont want to mess anything up. i dont know what i would do if i did.
