"Don't let people's cruel opinions get in the way of your dreams."

The loneliness.
It hurts.
It eventually kills.
Everyday is a fight for sanity.
It'll eventually go away and everything will be over.
Even your life.
Depression is a serious thing.
Help stop it.
You can save people's lives.
Did you know that?
If you see them alone, hurting.
Talk to them.
There are over 32,000 successful suicides committed each year.
And there's over 20 times more unsuccessful attempts.
Help stop these actions.
Take part and help someone in need.
If you see a friend hurting,
Talk to them.
That is how you will save people's lives.
Be someones hero.
Help them live.
Help them see the good things.
You won't regret it.
Make a difference in people's lives.
Just help.
Depression is a serious thing.
And it's time to let people know that it kills.
So help.
You won't ever regret it.
Save a friend's life.
Be a hero.

The author's comments:
I wrote this when it was To Write Love On Her Arms Day on April 21st last year. TWLOHA inspired me to write this; and the fact that I "suffer" from depression. I wanted everyone to know that there is hope for people with depression, if only bystanders would get the guts to talk to someone who's hurting. So, thank you to the To Write Love On Her Arms foundation for inspiring me to write such a moving piece. Love is the movement.
