Today, I realized I'm now the person I wanted to be seven years ago when I told my parents I wanted to kill myself. I'm so glad I didn't give up. MMT

Holy crap. This one's amazing. And astoundingly, I was thinking these exact thoughts a couple days ago, except six years ago, not seven. I'm very happy for both of us, whoever you are.

I hope I get to that stage someday.

Thank you for posting this :). It makes me think that one day I will truly be happy, without any qualifiers. Just happy. And that's a lovely thought.

I'm the same way. I was suicidal and had depression from 7th grade to about 10th. I never told anyone, but it was always there at night. Today, I'm so strong, I have more friends than anyone I know, I won prom king last year, I'm in an amazing university, and I have someone. It's not worth it, trust me! It seemed like the biggest deal back then, but you barely feel a thing looking back and it makes you stronger! Nothing's better than life.

Thanks. Funny the things we stumble upon. I just started med school. I know I'll end up where I want to be one day...however long it takes. But sometimes I just want to give it all up due to the high demand of energy/commitment/money. Your entry validates my dreams and inspires me to hold on.

Thank you for your inspiration

Vball: clinical depression is a neurological imbalance, a psychiatric disorder. Feeling bad about yourself or your circumstances is not depression.
