    Suicide, Depression & Death is one of the most talked about and feared topics of our waking lives. We are growing within our lives that stresses so much to defy aging and have us to believe we are going to be forever eternal on the physical plane.
    For everyday we experience lives we never knew be taken away from us...with all we want and desire to do.....we question why does human life come to a end with the souls that we loved in the darkness part of our hearts being taken away......then the grievances in our heart either lead us to depression, sadness then suicide..... but in that I’ve come to accept that Life is hard. We know that. When we step out into what is a dark and unkind world we need something to give us a little hope, a loved one, a light kiss, some good food, the warm sun; something to remind us that us that there is hope; something more. That is what a story should be, a tale to stand out against what otherwise is a bitter and gray existence. People say that a good ending is old fashioned and cliché, that its bad writing and unrealistic. If stories were meant to be realistic then we'd all want to crawl into a hole for lack of spirit. And that really is what a story is isn't it? A reflection of the human spirit: creative, passionate, loving: God-made. To have a story that is "realistic": that mirrors how cruel life can be, that mirrors our sometimes bitter apathy and that mirrors how bleak this world is if we take it as merely sticks and stones, is to undermine the very fabric of what separates us from the dust and ashes. We are created; there is a good and there is an evil and the good will win.

    It was terrible for me. First of all I moved. And I’m not talking about moving schools I’m talking about moving to a whole other city and a different school. One more reason why it was so hard was because before that I have went to an all girls school basically my whole life. And I was so scared because I have never really gone to school with boys. And I made my first crush but anyways, 😂 Second of all jake Paul’s song. Third of all when I got to the new school I was pretty shy even tho i made like 4 friends on the first day because everyone was really nice. But also the fact I’m kind of socially awkward because of how self conscious I am. Also that was the year I really felt the ugliest bc my acne started to get worse.
