uh , i felt very empty lately and i’m trying to cope with severe depression as a person who’s very young . i don’t want to tell my parents i have depression because they’ll think i’m just faking it , or i’m doing it for attention . only 2 of my friends know i have depression . my parents never look my way and expect me to be perfect . they act like i’m invisible and never ask if i’m okay . i’m trying to be optimistic but it’s hard . i hate the fact that i have to bottle up my feelings and fake a smile .
