Accepting ME ! , Age: 16

What have you struggled with? When did it become too much?

I struggled with depression and acceptance issues.

What kind of support did you get at first? Did it work?

I didn’t really have anyone to help me when I was struggling. I usually dealt with it by myself.

Were there any turning points where things really started to change for the better?

I think I started to change for the better when I started to realize that I can be sad but I need to start accepting things that I change and start trying to keep pushing and try to overcome current things. after this, I just started to accept myself and try to be more carefree.

What’s your life like now? What have you been able to accomplish, and what are you working towards?

my life now is more calming then earlier in life but now I’m working on all my problems and starting to overcome everything.

What would you say to people who are having a tough time? What’s helped you that you wish you had known earlier

honestly, I would tell someone whos having a hard time is try to take your problem head-on and just work through it, and just deal with the issue instead of avoiding the issue.

I struggled with depression and acceptance issues.

    It is such great encouragement to read the experiences that others have gone through

    , growing and developing can seem so difficult especially when no one is there to give us answers to the many questions we have, ofter we do not even know what questions to ask..
    I always love to watch how baby elephants are overcoming their challenges of growing and developingand yet they seem so happy and filled with joy and love.

    Here is a great movie I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXRr1C3P5Xs&ab_channel=Top10videosworld
