I had suffered from depression for a few years. High school was my toughest years, I always felt like everything was my fault and if I got out of the picture everything would be better. I had thought about many ways to commit suicide but without realising I had my family and friends always looking out for me. When I ran away they would come find me, when I intentionally hurt myself they would find help for me and comfort me. Though I was blinded by my emotions at the time, they were always there for me and they still are. Remember there’s always someone there for you and everyone deserves to be happy.
