It's 4.40 am.
I am in no condition to be on the internet.

I've been having a rough couple of months. and lately I've started to develop social anxiety(or just anxiety in general) on top of my depression. Which is just great, who wouldn't want to wallow in self hatred and sadness? It's smashing!

This is not going to be a journal about my depression though, quite the opposite.

I'd like you to;
leave a comment about the things in life that makes you happy, the little things.

Aw, I'm sorry for what you're going through. <33
I've never gone through depression, but I can understand what it's like to have social anxiety, and it's a terrible thing to have.
But anywho, happy things!
Besides the obvious like friends and family, ect. Little things!

- The queen sized blanket for my bed.
- The soot sprite keychain on my lanyard.
- My sugar skull fabric poster.
- longjohn donuts. e w e
- Watching youtube videos of my favorite youtubers. <3
- Being able to have enough time to draw in college.

What makes you happy? c:

Depression + Social Anxiety + Never wanting to take medication = Me.

I see absolutely no reason to have to take medication for my emotions. I see that as a 'quick fix' and i do not want to numb down my emotions, either... One can control themselves if they try. And i would rather try than do something i may regret later on in life. I like all sides of me, and i know for a fact that I would never go so far as to do something to myself. Yes, medication helps some people, but for others... Not so much.

Anyways, A lot of things make me happy.
One of the main things? My friends, and family.
Almost every day i talk to my friends, hearing their voices makes me smile and laugh so much.
Also.. Drawing. I love drawing with a passion and often use it as a venting device.
Listening to Jazz/Relaxing music.
Thinking of wonderful scenery, and even Noire-like scenes. Pretty funny, huh?
Something as simple as going outside will make me happy, too.
I also LOVE making other people laugh, because eventually it makes me laugh too. Sometimes people think I'm emotionless... I'm not. I just don't want to get hurt, so a shell was made. >.>;

Aw. My sister and friend have social anxiety. From what I gather from them, it is no fun. I'm sorry girl; hope things start to look up for you soon.
Something that makes me happy is going on tumblr. I follow some lovey-dovey type blogs, and there are often posts that put a smile on my face because they remind me about my boyfriend. Or, cuddling up in bed with all of my boyfriend's jackets that he lets me borrow. Being surrounded by things that remind me of him always cheers me up. There is a music box that he gave me for my 17th birthday, and whenever I am feeling down, I play the box and it calms me. Looking at pictures and old videos of my boyfriend also cheers me up a little bit. I usually do all this stuff at night right before I go to bed, and drift off to sleep to the music box. It keeps my mind from thinking about unpleasant or stressful things. Keeps me positive so I can at least have a good night's rest instead of staying up thinking all night.
Having a cup of hot tea when I get home from school makes me happy too. Spending time with my pets, just focusing purely on them, also cheers me up. Cuz I realize in that moment that they've waited all day for attention and love from their owner, and providing that for them makes me feel better. Sometimes just sitting in front of the heater, leaning back in the chair, and listening to Ellie Goulding or Josh Turner and closing my eyes and enjoying the moment calms me down. A nap may or may not accompany that moment but it's all good :)
