My first flash comic and one of the hardest project I have ever worked on. I do hope it will help someone out there, even if just a little bit.

OMG! my very first DD! thank you :iconnylelevi: for the suggestion and to everyone else for your wonderful comments and to each of you who have shared your own stories! this is my biggest reward, the response I hoped for, I am truly happy that I've managed to give some of you a bit of hope! Really, thank you so much!

EDIT: "A story of hope" has won first prize in the Creative Consicence Awards: UK 2013, Illustration and Animation category.

This is really moving! :heart: I was brought to tears!

I know what its like to face depression and its not easy to get over, but from all those years of depressions I learned to become stronger! I'm glad I am not the only one that noticed a new found strength!


God bless you! :hug:

I was bullied too but I kicked their ass and took my revenge :iconevilgrinplz:
I wish I could have shown this to my brother, who was a gentle, intelligent person, loved by the friends he made in life, but still haunted every step by the bullying and torture inflicted upon him for years on end in school. I wish I had told him that he needs to find peace in himself and that he needs to forgive - not because they deserved it, but because he himself would have deserved it. 27 years and nothing had changed. He had two PhDs by then, and insisted he was worthless. His friends, myself one of his best, loved him like mad, and still he felt alone and hated. He never told me, but I knew by just looking at the fake smile he put on when only one stranger came along with our tight little group. He never stopped loathing himself for who he was, despite everything he accomplished. I don't know what finally drove him over the edge, but his last words were, "I made a fool of myself."

This story of hope might not have changed anything, but I know he would have appreciated it.

I'm so thankful you made this! Even if I haven't been in the same situation I know many who are, and this is such a huge help for these people. Also it touches hearts. And lost souls. And gives hope. I honestly respect you for doing this, and I find this amazingly inspiring not just for my art but also for my life. So thank you! :hug:
