Content Warnings: Stress, depression, pessimism


Dear friend,


I hope you’re doing well. I wish I could say the same about myself. It’s interesting–things can go really well, but you’re counting the minutes until everything goes belly-up, and then it does. Sometimes I can’t help but think that everything good in my life is temporary, and that it’s only a matter of time until I lose everything I’ve worked so hard for.


Everyone says, “think positive,” but I’ve learned not to hold any expectations, because anytime I expect a positive outcome of a situation, the opposite happens. It happens too often for me to believe otherwise. 


In moments like these, I don’t overwhelm myself with schoolwork and other responsibilities. My mental health is taking a front seat for the first time in a while. I’m normally someone who enjoys being productive as much as possible, but I don’t have the energy for that right now. I need a break. 


To whoever reading this, if you are going through a rough patch, a bump in the road, whatever it is, I promise you, you’re not alone. Take this time for yourself. Look after yourself. Treat yourself with the utmost kindness, love, and respect. You need it right now.




A friend
