A book changed my life when I was in a slump. It was back in 8th grade when I first learned that I had depression and anxiety. I was miserable and I didn't know how to ask for help. I keep on thinking maybe if I end my life now it would all be better, but the thought of leaving the people I love scared me. This is where books changed my life. I started reading more as my anxiety and depression progress and the joy these characters bring me is phenomenal. I thought to myself 'hey, if this people can move on despite killing an entire family maybe I can do it as well?'. That thought helped me, because 4 years later, I'm still here.
