        It's okay to be insecure and have depression even if you don't feel like there's an actual reason. You are valid. I'm not very active here but you can talk to me on Instagram **************** I'm no expert but I'll listen and try to support you as much as I can.

            Hey Hurts

            Thank you for coming to us - we are here to support you through this

            I'm really sorry to hear that you've been suffering recently. Can I ask, are you feeling suicidal at the moment? As Daya said, you are valid and your experiences matter. We are all here for you.

            I think it's great that you were happy for two months. I wonder what made you feel this way? You might have been doing something specifically that helped you to feel better and it would be really good to pin that down and do more of it. When people go through mental health difficulties, it is perfectly normal to go back and forth between feeling down with it to then feeling on top of the world. The truth is, mental health is not a straight path. There are many ups and downs, and this is expected for everyone. However, I can see why this might be frustrating for people.

            Have you seen our support guides on improving mental health and self-image/self-esteem? You might find them useful:

            Let me know what you think of all this. As I said, it will be really helpful to know why you were feeling good for two months. Also, what other things do you think might help you to move forward right now? I'm sure there are plenty of things you know about that help you. I'm interested to see what you think.

            Hope to hear back from you soon! You're doing really well and it's great that you're asking others for help. Hang in there

            -Monsoon
