take it away by starlight224255 take it away by starlight224255
inspired by :iconakirakirai: and her picture [link]

her picture and caption just made me cry for how true it rang for me. I just had to make something of my own to express my struggles.

So here's my own little ... idk what to call it... confession?
Yes I have many issues with depression and self esteem. i struggle with the doubt every day and every night i spend alone in my room i can feel it flood every in through every crack in my mind. Sometimes it gets very bad. But i have some of the best friends in the world who, no matter how far away they are (like new jersey ;D ) have some kind of sixth sense to text me or come to my room.

they are the ones who give me the strength to fight and i know they love me even if i feel lonely right then. No matter how much i hate myself thanks to them i wouldn't change a thing.

like my art, i'm getting better every day =) and all thanks to those who support me. couldn't ask for better people in my life. they mean the absolute world to me

Depression is such a difficult problem to struggle with. It feels as though you need that specific, very selective type of love to only help you feel better, right? Like you are seeking for that kind of happiness and often tune out the happiness that you have around you already?

I totally understand, 100%! It hurts, it really does, but as much as others can try to help us, we are really the only ones that can truly help ourselves pull out of our sadness! We just have to open up more about the love that our friends/family/pets/etc are giving us -- the simple, yet almost ignored pieces of our life -- and embrace them with gratefulness!

This is gorgeously drawn and I love your quote. It's feels so true and I understand how that feels! Technically: the hands look great! Keep drawing and improving!

Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece and let-alone even being inspired by my piece to make your own!

You're definitely not alone, keep it up, girl! :iconlaplz:

O///O meep! thank you so much *bows* means a lot >//w//<

Definitely looking back I know I tuned out so many happy events because I just could not see past it. Always seemed like even happy moments were so fleeting that they could not have possibly been true happiness; just a tease meant to remind me of what I could have. Been a process but definitely have learned that those fleeting moments are more like what I will have rather that what I could have. =)

The opening up part had to be the scariest part of it all! I remember when my friend caught me for the first time and I had to actually admit it out loud! One of the hardest things I have ever done! As you said though, its strength rather than weakness =D Gotta love those little things that have the biggest impact! (btw so glad you mentioned pets! they seriously have the biggest influence with their undying love and kindness).

thank you sooo much! means a lot hearing that from someone with so much talent :blush: I am so honored that you like it! I just wanted to make sure you knew that you had an impacted me ^__^ and had to make sure credit was given

thank you again!!!
