Being yourself is important. I don’t think anyone should ever drag you down and make you feel less than yourself.
We all go through times where we feel less than we should, and I believe that is perfectly normally. It is normal to go through though times, but don’t let them drag you down.
Some days are so hard, yes, I know. I have gone through hard times. Times where I feel less than myself. And it isn’t fun. You probably have been through times yourself.
You feel like you are nothing. You feel that nobody cares about you or your feelings. This is not true. Your parents care. Your friends should care.
Friends are very important. Good friends, that is. Surround yourself with friends who will be there no matter what. Sometimes this is so hard. Especially if you are homeschooled, like me. I have friends, don’t worry. Just when you are homeschooled there are only so many people you associate with. Having friends that are true friends can be hard.
Recently I have been going through a lot. Within 2018 and 2019 I have had a lot of close friends move and/or go to college. I don’t even want to name them all. It is very hard because it isn’t easy to be long-distance friends. People get bust with there lives, and it isn’t that they forget about you, they just don’t have the time or energy to keep multiple long distance friends. Sometimes it is hard to understand on our end. But you know if you have tried to keep a long distance friendship.
I want to say this now. Guys, this is a topic I have been avoiding. It makes me think about all my friends who I don’t see regularly. And it makes me miss them… so yeah, I try to avoid it.
But I realized, I am not the only person who goes through hard times. I thought I should try to share what I did to get out of my depression.
First of all, make friends that you can call at one in the morning. AKA make true friends.
Another this that helps is spending time strengthening your friendships. Find things that you and your friends have in common, do these things. Learning about your friends is a key to strong relationships.
Also, never give up hope. Always keep on praying for your friends. Pray for yourself, too. Pray that you will become a strong person and a great friend.
God knows your future. Never forget that. HE KNOWS WHO YOUR FRIENDS WILL BE TEN YEARS FROM NOW! I cannot stress that enough.
Now, back to the point.
Never let your mind wonder about who you are. YOU ARE MADE TO BE WHO YOU ARE! DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU OTHERWISE! GOD MADE YOU TO BE SPECIAL AND UNIQUE!
