Im not going to dive too deep into the mental health nut but man alive... I recall being depressed in my life and looking back on it now I realize what kind of warped logic the brain presents as fact and its no wonder why people think this kind of action is logical but holy hell.

2. There are paths to feeling better and they are absolutely doable. Find 3rd party support.

3. You are not the only person in this world and whatever problems you have can not ruin someone else’s life...consider this please.
