The one thing I know for sure is that feelings are rarely mutual, so when they are, drop everything, forget belongings and expectations, forget the games, the two days between texts, the hard to gets because this is it, this is what the entire world is after and you’ve stumbled upon it by chance, by accident - so take a deep breath, take a step forward, now run, collide like planets in the system of a dying sun, embrace each other with both arms and let all the rules, the opinions and common sense crash down around you. Because this is love kid, and it’s all yours. Believe me, you’re in for one hell of a ride, after all - this is the one thing I know for sure.
Sure, one can say that I don’t always cope with depression and anxiety in healthy ways. But what matters first and foremost is that I am still here. Still alive and fighting. Storms rarely take on the same form and ferocity. Depression is the same. So you find ways to adapt. You may not always make the best choice on how to manage. That’s human. Make those mistakes. Make them early. Youth is the best time to butcher your demons. The most important thing is that you braved the madness and are ALIVE. If you’re alive, you fucking WIN.
