“Ask for help in the areas in which you need to change. Once you get the help you need, put your hand out and try to help others. For a very long time, everything in my life was difficult. Dealing with depression and anxiety had me turning to any possible external source to try to cure my feelings of not being good enough. No matter if it was food, social media/entertainment, or other negative coping skills. I was an over-consumer because it helped me forget about how I felt; that was until I decided to finally get help for my underlying issues of low self-esteem. Today, I reach out for help in communities of people that do their best to help, along with therapy. Beyond that, I do my best to try and help people in whichever way that I can; this alone has made me feel a part of a world I felt like I never fit in.”
