I have struggled with depression for many years. Growing up, I was always bullied and abused by people in and out of my family. I had low self esteem and always thought the worst. I had really bad anxiety, depression, etc. Freshman year, I moved to South Carolina where I thought things would get better. They didn’t. I got bullied more about things like my weight, height, face, etc. Halfway through the year I found someone who I felt like I fell in love with. He was great at first then he too, turned into a bully. I was in an emotionally and physically abusive relationship for three and a half years. I had no self-esteem and I felt like I was the reason behind my torture. I have had two suicide attempts and I still face depression today, but one thing I have to face is that I shouldn’t have shame for the way others treat me. I struggled with taking pills, cutting, almost anything you can expect. I tried to shut my body down in every way possible. We all have feelings and we all have emotions. Today, I can call myself a survivor, and I hope everyone else can too.
