"Depression is a flaw in chemistry, not character"
Not very many people know this but at the beginning of my sophomore year of high school I was diagnosed with severe depression. 4 years later I am happy and healthy. Last week I got a serotonin molecule on my foot to remind myself that pain is temporary.
So I put this on Facebook with the caption ‘this is the serotonin molecule. serotonin is the chemical the brain lacks when someone is depressed. i will get better one day.’ and a girl who I really don’t like posted a mass status about how self harmers are meant to be ashamed of their scars, not posting them on Facebook.
All I can think is, I’m sorry, but I’m not going to be ashamed of something I beat.
