This is the greatest thing I have ever seen. People do not understand that mental illnesses, such as depression, are actual chemical imbalances in your body. They are not brought on by choice. My dad was diagnosed with depression. He was so ashamed of it that he hid it from me and my brothers. A month later, he killed himself. The stigma that comes with mental illness made my Dad embarrassed to talk to his own kids about this problem because he felt like less of a man.
Erase the stigma. The more we talk about mental illness, the less likely it will end in suicide.
I wish my maths teacher would listen.
She knows I’m severely depressed (like all my teachers) and she still piles on hours worth of revision and pressure on me to pass exams.
Just because I don’t have an extremely depressed look on my face and essence in the air doesn’t mean I don’t want to kill myself and doesn’t mean I can handle the pressure of exams and revision.
The more we TALK about mental illness the less stigmatised it is, and the easier it will be for me and many others to function.
Jennifer Shrader Lawrence: One of the Most Inspiring Women In the World
There are many reasons one would choose Jennifer Lawrence as their role model. First of all, at the early age of 20, she was nominated for the Academy Award For Best Actress. Aside from being one of the best actresses the world has known, she is very down to earth. She knows how to make people laugh without even trying, she has a great sense of humor, and she’s not letting the fame get to her head. She’s not at all embrassed when she makes a mistake or says something out of line during interviews, she doesn’t hold anything back (like peeing in the ocean or talking about camel toes) and she still acts like a little kid at times. Not to mention the fact that she tripped and fell on her way to receiving her well-deserved Oscar but getting up, still looking gorgeous and unfazed.
But the reason she’s such an ideal role model for people everywhere is because she’s not only amazingly flawless, she’s also beautiful on the inside. She is confident with the way she looks as she points out in interviews and magazines. Not in the way that she’s bragging because she thinks she’s perfect, but in the way that she’s happy and content and she doesn’t plan on changing anything about herself.
She shows everyone, most especially young boys and girls, who, especially as teenagers might feel very insecure at this time that you don’t need to starve yourself to be happy and that it’s okay to make mistakes. She shows them that you don’t need to conform to what society wants to see; just be your own person.
She teaches us and inspires us to be ourselves.
“The whole time I was hoping my silence would fit yours and exclamation marks would gently float across time and space so that boundaries would be crossed; the whole time I was praying you would read my eyes and understand what I was never able to understand. See, we were never about butterflies. We’ve always been about burning stars. All about us is unearthly and radiant.”
