What’s the best advice you can give?


“You come first because you can’t really trust anyone else; you have to be there for yourself. You can’t rely on other people. You have to make sure you’re happy to be there for yourself. It is a lesson that took me a long time to learn. I had depression for most of my life and I kept trying to find comfort in other people, I try to get other people to tell me the right answer so I could be happy, and I tried medicine. Nothing really worked until I changed my lifestyle and started focusing on what would make me happy and not what other people thought would help. I was sitting in a hospital bed after my last suicide attempt which was my most serious one and I was thinking that I can’t keep doing this. Something needs to change. I had five suicide attempts in 2016 and after the last one I told myself I am not going to do this anymore.”
