- Person: You've... changed.
- Me: Hah, yeah. You see depression does that to people. Things hurt; pain causes change. I went through things that you weren't there for. I'm changing for the better me. I can be what I want to be. Yeah, sure, my depression changed me. A lot. But you know what? Coming out of it, I can finally see what is beautiful in the world. Depression won't own me. I've had problems on my own and dealt with them without you. Tell me I've changed. If you don't like it, you don't have to be around. This is my life. Yeah, I want you around, but I don't need someone to push me down. Not again. Thank you but no. Change is only the half of it.
- Person: ...oh.
when I see his name, my heart beats faster and I can't help but smile<3
