Life is too short to stay depressed
2 years ago my parents told me and my sister they were getting a divorce. It really got to me and i literally cried non-stop for a week and got angry. I lashed out and isolated myself and was horrible to everyone. I verbally and physically hurt people in my family.
At school i pretended i didn't care and that became routine. I found it was easier to deal with if i pretended to not care so for a whole year i did. My school work went bust and i even tried self-harm but snapped out of that quickly.
It got worse when my mum got a new boyfriend and i was a ___ to him. I realise now that i was the one causing trouble not them. I think i was so angry because i felt betrayed like they all lied to me.
I hadn't cried for 2 years but then i got some really good friends and started to get on with my family really well and i've matured and realise the whole situation now. I never want to go there again. It was the worst time of my life and i pushed myself into it. I'm really happy now :)
Now my friend is going thru the exact same thing so i really hope i can be the support she needs to get happy like i did.
