Become friends with people who aren’t your age. Hang out with people whose first language isn’t the same as yours. Get to know someone who doesn’t come from your social class. This is how you see the world. This is how you grow.
Maybe, just maybe, I’m the faller. Every family has, like, someone who falls, who doesn’t make the grade, who stumbles, who life trips up. Maybe I’m our faller.
Kit Kat, About Time (2013)
It all comes down to the last person you think of at night. That’s where your heart is.
Wake up early. Drink coffee. Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight, your mind right and your head up. Do well, live well and dress really well. Do what you love, love what you do. It is time to start living.
Be mindful of what you put in your body; in your mind. We not only consume the food that we eat, but also the thoughts, images, and energy we surround ourselves with. Choose wisely.
What some people do not understand about depression is that its sufferers are not without small victories, there will be days you’ll see a smile, or hear short bursts of laughter, but you must never mistake them for signs of survival. Depression is a constant battle for these small victories, which are often few and far between, and its victims have fought hard and desperately for each and every one of them. Please keep in mind, that for a sufferer of depression, even a single moments peace can come at a great cost, and sometimes, it’s too much.
