You wouldn’t know that she has depression.
You wouldn’t know that she has a battle within her.
You think because she’s beautiful, has cute clothes,
and is nice but a little quiet that her life is perfect
or at least good. While that might be true on the
outside, inside she is suffering. She masters the
art of smiling with tears in her eyes and pretending
everything is okay when inside she is crying.
She could be the most extroverted person or
the most introverted person. She doesn’t tell
people what she’s feeling because she knows
they’ll say, “You need to talk to someone”
or, “You need to go out and do activities.”
But doing either of those things isn’t going
to make depression go away. She could be
at a huge party with friends and still feel
depressed. She has a chemical in her brain
that imbalances her and makes her feel
that she isn’t good enough or worthy
enough of anything or anyone. Having
depression … how she feels… she wants
