I've been having a problem with this self destructive girl in my class that thinks she's the only one with problems. she was curled into a couch. instead of being angry I rolled up my sleeves and showed her my scars. I told her that sometimes you can't beat depression on your own. and then I walked her to the counslers office where she set up an appointment to see them twice a week. she then sobbed into my shoulder and thanked me for reaching out. my insperation to reach out was this blog. thank you. I made a differnce when usually I would hide.
