Welcome Dear Friend!
About one and a half years ago, I probably made the worst decision of my life, yielding to depression.
I am a young perfectionist student who has always been struggling with school, and not because I am lazy or a couch potato. I have always wanted to do my very best to meet every teacher's requirements, and in order to do that, I had to devote my entire life to studying, not knowing that making everyone happy is impossible. As a result, having no free time left me with no friends to talk with about my issues. I had no shoulders to cry on, because my parents are struggling with the same issues - they are perfectionists too, workaholics, to be precise.. they never had time for me. Feeling lonely and miserable, I decided to end my life, as I saw nothing but the fact that this cycle will continue all throughout my life. I will never be content with my situation, or pleased, I will never have a moment to relax and enjoy what I have achieved, because I will keep wanting more and more, I thought. Being this desperate, I had managed to cut my wrist, but I immediately regretted my action as I could not end my life and got really scared. Since then, I am taking life a lot easier, as I had managed to have several consultations with doctors and therapists who helped me through the hard times. I really admire them for this, and I wish to become some kind of a doctor in the future, too, to help the ones in need and express my eternal gratitude for helping me to cope with mental issues.
Unfortunately, the scars are still there on my wrist, and they are my biggest insecurities, despite learning the lesson: never surrender, never give up, never let depression defeat you. I wish to have them surgically removed, because they are not pleasant at all to look at. This is what I need your help with: I would kindly appreciate all kinds of donations. It would also help if you just told your children how precious they are; please don't forget to appreciate them every day, and please make sure they are alright, because mental issues are too tough to be fought alone!
Thank you for reading this, and please have a wonderful day, and take care of others around you, helping them out when they are in trouble! Life will smile back at you.
