Life is the biggest treasure we humans have. We look after it, protect it, make it as good as possible and enjoy the little time we have on this earth. But not everyone thinks so. Not everyone is able to build their own “heaven on earth”
Some of us have been thrown into a living hell. We suffer, we cry, we break down, we get hurt over and over and worst of all: Some of us never even had a choice. Of course, there are people who live in awful situations like hunger or being homeless. But do not underestimate the pain that the people in good homes and good circumstances feel.
When you are in a good environment and you have everything you need, you feel happy. A normal life: A few good friends to hang out with over the weekends, good school times which may have been hard at some point but at least you met your friends there, a girlfriend or boyfriend you met and got together with.
Not all of us have this kind of life.
Take mine: I lost my disabled sister when I was 8 years old, she was 5. Dying in my arms just as I got home from school. No friends. Bullied for 7 years straight by 2 classes, roughly forty people. I had a girlfriend on the internet. We were together for a few weeks. Then she got rid of me and got herself a new boyfriend the day after. I’ve been depressed for over 8 years and I’m 17 now. I self harmed, had suicide attempts, went to therapy and now after all this time:
I’m still just as depressed as ever.
I may have a “good life”, but what is this good life worth if it is daily torture to endure?
