i've never been a very high achiever, but i really tried hard when i got into uni. my grades were actually better than a lot of people's for my first semester. then i just caught this deep depression out of nowhere and i went spiraling down until i couldn't get out of bed. i feel better now that it's summer, but my gpa for my first year is now terrible and it would take crazy amounts of work to recover to where i want to be.

everyone has those times ya know? there have for sure been points where i thought that one mistake was gonna affect me for the rest of my life. the key i've found to being happier is realizing that as long as you continue carrying on, there is more right with you than wrong with you and things tend to work out. its all about perspective.

i've been depressed for a long time and i dropped out of school 2 years ago, at 17. i was just about to graduate. the problem was really that i didnt really know that i was depressed. i thought that everyone felt like me so i never bothered reaching out to someone about it. and now after talking to a lot a psychiatrists i've kind of given up. i'll just stay in the family business that i am very lucky to have until i die
