My name is Brittany, and I am 17 years old. I am an amateur artist, lesbian, poet and writer. My family and friends are my world, and all my feelings are expressed through my art. I am a survivor of childhood trauma, on many levels. IT NEVER LEAVES YOU. It has caused me to mature well beyond my years, left me with depression, an anxiety disorder and trust issues you wouldn't believe. Only my best friends really understand my moods, my ups and downs seem random but always have some lurking cause. If you are a happy go lucky person, i advise you not to look any further, merely hit the back button and move on. For this page is going to be my sanctuary, the place i let it all loose without restraint. so watch out, because the Silence Is Over.
Wanna see my loving side?
Watch out, you might just fall further into my spell :) <3
listen to me
your heart is still beating
you still have air in your lungs
and you still have a shot
do not give up
Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.
And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.
if i died, everyone would easily replace me in less than a week.
