I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality
and if you’ve had depression since early childhood you don’t even know if you have your own personality
you didn’t have time to be a person before depression
and it’s scary having no idea who you are
something that helps me and might help other people is to acknowledge my experiences’ role in being who i am today. it’s nearly impossible to go back to your pre-depression self because you would have to ignore everything you learned along the way, which is something i certainly don’t want to lose, even though i learned it the hard way. depression doesn’t erase your personality, it helps contribute to it.
i find it so incredibly attractive when someone is really good at something, like you can play the violin? damn son. you’re a really talented dj? good for you! i don’t care if you talk to me about quantum physics for an hour straight if i can see the passion in you at some point in that hour i’ll think “whoa, this is really hot.”
prompt was ~fashion~!! one day i’ll fit a bg into the time limit ;v;;
