my anonymous formspring question answered by an amazing girl.


Thanks Ashlie.

i asked her..
What advice would you give to someone who is depressed? If you had to lift them up even if you yourself were also depressed?

things can't always stay bad. i firmly believe in balance, in symmetry. there is a calm after every storm, no matter how severe. clouds eventually pass and the sun breaks through, so where there are oceans of ugliness and pain there are islands of beauty and happiness somewhere beyond the horizon, you just have to keep your head up and above long enough to catch sight of them. there is a kind of beauty in everything, even if it's a sad beauty or a sick and twisted kind. also, be glad you can feel anything at all, even if it is sad or sick and twisted. some people either can't or don't allow themselves to feel a goddamned thing. as sad as i can feel i know that i can feel just as happy. this too shall pass.

Everything clears up in the long term I guess, its just in the short term that its so painful.
