I'll Take this Cali Sunrise with Me
What does it mean to have half your friends suffer from mental problems? No, I'm not trying to be funny. Most of us have been actually diagnosed by qualified professionals, be it counselors or GPs.
The two most common mental disorders among young adults are Anxiety Attacks and Depression. I do realise it's a bit hard to grasp and I'm sure some people think we're just being annoying or attention seeking by complaining about our problems and such. Unfortunately, this is serious business and it's REAL. It must be, since we get affected badly physiologically.
I don't know if all people our age go through it or it just so happens that my friends are burdened more than others. Is it the fact that we're away from home? Is it because uni here is too tough? Is it because we tend to take on too many additional responsibilites?
But whatever your problems, it's okay to seek help. To ask for guidance. For love. For understanding. I can give you ALL the hugs you need. I probably need it too. And remember, you're not alone in facing this and it will always get better. Where else is there to go, if not up, when you hit rock bottom? ;)
ps: on a side note, I keep picturing myself performing on stage with my pusher and my jedi master. We'd play all my fave powerpop/ pop punk songs. I'd be in summery outfits with flowers in my hair. Oh Bliss. :D
pps: top pick for this week = Jamie All Over by Mayday Parade. :)
