Any time - no worries. I just hope you know that you can PM me or tag me into a post to ask me anything whenever you need to - no matter how small or insignificant your problems may seem.
Is there anything (like various hobbies) that you do that helps you to express your emotions?

Well 3 days isn't as much as let's say 5 but day by day try and think of things that give u positive thoughts so that the thought you are having lessen each day... I get you want to be a happy and confident person so in order to do that you need to go out there and show people you are this person, try and make friends with new people try and socialise if you do this your confidence will boost but also you will be happy because you have made friends that you can talk to. One thing you shouldn't. Ever do is self harm its good that you have stopped it now but you should never let your beautiful innocent skin suffer just because your upset it should remain scarless, if you get the need to self harm again then PM me or someone you trust so that they can talk you out of it xx

If you like similes, I guess you could say that this is a bit like an earthquake. The more upset or depressed you may be, the more pressure builds up, until this is released and the earthquake occurs and you cry. If you try to resist this, more and more pressure builds up and the earthquake has a much greater magnitude. This could potentially hurt and affect you even more than the smaller earthquake. Don't be afraid of crying frequently; people can maintain a fairly stable life with constant lower magnitude earthquakes, but their lives are turned upside down with the greater ones.
I also find that drawing and writing are very helpful ways to express emotion. You could take up a new hobby - not necessarily sticking to it but at least you could try different things out. Getting fresh air is also great - I didn't realise how much it would help me. Only after actually leaving my house for fresh air did I realise that I hadn't been outside for ages - except to go to school. I hope that you'll be able to experiment with new hobbies to find ways that you can calm down your emotions a bit more. I have found that writing a diary really helps. I usually make sure that I write in it everyday - although this has been quite hard as I can't be bother sometimes - and write down all my emotions. This helps me to keep track of how I feel over time and come to terms with the changes in my emotion. I didn't really have a cause for my emotions either so by being able to say exactly how I felt, even if it was to a diary and not a person, really helped me. I still do this now and I'm much happier than before.

You have a quote book that's cool! Have you ever tried turning your quotes into lyrics (not necessarily a tune more like rap)? Like just writing every thing that goes through your head the moment you feel down or happy?
That's what I did (whilst being bullied - and feeling guilty for my mums depression AND having panic attacks oh good glory what a year that was 😖) and I still do it now!
So now I have a developed a skill of turning any emotions into writing it's definitely helpful

hey, I know exactly how you feel, I have really struggled with depression in the past and spent about a year really struggling with suicidal thoughts even though I knew I'd never do it. It sounds like you're just feeding the feelings of depression though, maybe listening to sad songs all the time isn't going to help. And it's important that you know you're not alone - loads of people understand how you feel and would be willing to support you through this. PM me if you ever need to talk to anyone about anything. Hope you feel better soon
