“Seeking help is a brave decision. Everybody needs it at some point in their life, with many struggling in silence. Therapy and medications can be daunting, a trial and error, if you will, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth it. Keep trying, keep going, because there are people who care – people you have and haven’t met yet. If you are struggling, reach out to a trusted person or even a support group. It will be hard, but people want to help and you deserve to be happy.”
