You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
This made me cry so much.
This actually made me cry. Something like this can be hopeful? SubhanAllah
I really needed this right now. This actually made me cry. I lost it at the “Everybody reaches a breaking point” part. Jazakallah khairun to whoever created this, seriously.
Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.
… Well, yeah. He’s in the middle, where the eye is naturally drawn. All the lines are leading toward him. If they put the girl in the middle, and used the same aesthetic tricks, I would have automatically assumed it was talking about her. Instead, she’s leaning out of the frame, with her face half in shadow, and curved toward the boy, so even if you look at her first your eye is still drawn toward the boy shortly after.
This isn’t hidden or internalized sexism, it’s just basic art concepts and human thought proncess exploited to make you think that you’re being sexist when you aren’t.
