Lonelier Than Before

Depression can leave you feeling lonelier than you were before – before the thoughts started chewing at your mind driving you crazy, causing you to do things that you wouldn’t normally do like self-harming, doing drugs, and having sex. Doing anything to make the hole in your chest go away or to fill up on its own. I feel these unhealthy habits limit us from talking to anyone. I’m going out on a limb here, but I think it’s safe to say that some teens would rather deal with depression in their own way, not liking what happens when we tell our parents or friends what’s been going on. We automatically feel that medication and multiple therapy appointments will be what our lives will consist of.

From my experiences with depression I can tell you every day will seem like the biggest struggle of your life. It leaves you feeling tired, alone, and anxious. I’m no doctor or psychiatrist, but I am strong believer in talking your feelings out. It may seem too difficult or shameful to talk through this rough patch in your life, but that’s just it, it’s just an obstacle on your journey in becoming the better you. I know it seems quite odd but God works in mysterious ways and if I’m allowed to say, I would say God sometimes works in the most confusing, but helpful, ways. I’m not sure if you reading this is a believer of Jesus, but I would like to say that no matter what you go through you will always get through it with Him. // Written by Kia J

It’s Easy To Keep Secrets

Secrets. It’€™s easy to keep secrets.  Life moves fast, things happen- sometimes you get disappointed- sometimes let down. Pressure to fit in, ACHIEVE, look good, BE GOOD. It all adds up – and sometimes the way we cope can be less than ideal. A secret struggle can be depression untreated, abuse or addiction unspoken, self harm hidden, or a suicide plan left to grow in isolation.  At RemedyLIVE our goal is to provide hope that the secret struggle doesn’€™t have the final say on a person’€™ future.  That by sharing that struggle one is far more able to experience hope in the midst of pain – to take small steps of courage out of isolation to arrive at a new place of peace – one that shows you you’€™re not alone. Share the secret struggle. Don’€™t carry the weight. Talk to someone today.

We’€™re RemedyLIVE – we chat, we listen, and we love.

If you or someone you know is struggling with a secret that is causing them pain, it’s important that you get the struggle out by talking to a trusted adult who can help you take the next steps you need to get the help you deserve.

Sometimes we believe that we’re too far gone, or that nothing can ever make things better- but that isn’t true. Help is just a sentence away if you can muster the courage needed to share the secret struggle that is keeping you in isolation from the community you need. Your life is too valuable, too important – and perhaps you’ve allowed the voices in your head to convince you that no one cares.

If you’re struggling with self harm, being abused, or thinking of suicide, it’s very important that you don’t believe you’re all alone- there are people who want to help you right now in our RemedyLIVE chat center. Chat with us today!
