I know it’s Sunday and maybe a little late for this but take time off from work and school or whatever it is you need too, try just let it all flow through. Rather than listen to sad music listen to happy music because if you do it’s more likely to change your mood to that, try out something calming like listening to ASMR if that works for you or try watching some funny videos. If you need to tell everyone you’re gonna take a couple days to yourself and just calm down and feel better. As for getting respect that’s a bit of a tough one but not impossible to do. If you want respect try and look the part first, work out or dress nice, do something a bit fancy. You look good you feel good, you feel good you do good, you do good everything works out well. You’re already a beautiful soul and I have no doubt that your beauty is in your entire body including the surface. So that’s that step down, then try and just give yourself a presence of some sort. Like how I always try to act happy and energetic and connect people who are less willing to talk and before you know it people are talking like old friends. If talking to them about it doesn’t work and time passing won’t earn you it find other people. They may seem like your friends but if they treat you like crap and don’t think of you as worth it then they aren’t worth it. Find someone else, someone who will treat you right. Real friends who genuinely care about your condition and if you are ok. It’s going to suck leaving people behind and meeting new people but things will get better, things always get better in life. The world’s not perfect but it’s not that bad alright? You got this and I believe in you just like everyone else on this website believes in you. There is always someone here if you need someone to talk to or rant to or whatever it is you need to feel better. Like I said I check this website everyday all you have to do is send a message and I’m there alright? Or @Oil because God knows he loves helping people whenever he can. Or even any listener that we have on this site at any moment in time. Cecelia there might not seem like there are people who care about you but we do, we all care about you and if you are ok alright? I’m an English major and love writing if you want me to just write you a nice story or poem or something to make you feel better then feel free to ask, there is only one thing you need in life and that is the will. The will to do what it takes in life to move forward, to keep going, that even when the world kicks you down you will stand back up and keep moving forward because deep down you know there is a light at the end of the tunnel waiting for you to get there. All you need to do is simply keep going even when things seem hard. You are strong and brave and I believe you have that will already, all it takes is putting one foot in front of the other. You got this, we believe in you.
