As hard as it is to revisit our own experiences, to reveal the most vulnerable corners of our souls and almost feel like exposing to world-wide bullying our children-self, it's something we must try to do...
OMG! my very first DD! thank you 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!
This is really moving! 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!
This story of hope might not have changed anything, but I know he would have appreciated it.
I have received a lot of criticism for including God, but if I am to share such an intimate piece of my heart I will not leave out the most important part of it. I am free to speak about it as they are free to not like it
You've helped me see the light that shines at the end of every tunnel. You are an amazing person to have taken time out of your life to make this. You deserve every bit of the D.D. you got. This is a masterful work of art, and I can't express my feelings of both gratitude and happiness that someone made an artwork like this.
It gives me hope, and makes my heart swell with purpose. As a child, I felt exactly like this, and maybe perhaps even worse. Just recently it's been getting awfully bad. But reading this through for the what feels like the hundredth time, I am reminded again that it gets better; it can't stay this bad forever.
Thank you again. You are a wonderful person.
Let life happen, do not be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone, travel to a place you've never been and take up challenges that you've never even thought of, you'll know what to do and how to get past by them when their time comes, really, you will. And stay true to yourself, follow your own dream in life even against the possibility of financial modesty, otherwise what is the point? But above all, take a bit of your time to sometimes talk to God in your heart ask him to help you the way he knoes best and never despair or loose faith because never, absolutely never would he turn his back on someone who truly wants to live close to him. there is no way that I could have ever cured myself and accomplish everything I have accomplished so fa,r without His help. As much as people will tell me that I did it myself that it wasn't God the one who put me on a plane or passed my exams in my place or looked for a job for me, I have to tell them that yes, it was actually Him, His help. I had every chance against me, from my financial condition to my low self-confidence and self-hatred, and yet everytime my problems turned out far better than I would have ever expected them to. I wish I was able to make people understand just how much happier and easier our lives would be with the courage, the dignity, the inner-freedom, the peace that faith gives us.
I hope you didn't mind me taking the liberty to write these small pieces of advice to you I know there'd be many people who'd point a flamethrower of criticism at me for speaking like this, but I can't help it
Thank you so much for your message once again! It really made my week!
I'm glad I made your week. I've never been too terribly religious, so I might not take you up on your "God will help you" advice, but I appreciate everything else you advised to me. I just have to get past the irrational part of my mind that cares what other people think.
I wish I could make something like you did, to reach out a helping hand to those who need it.
Wonderful work again.
