This drawing means a lot to me as it is my response to the people that said "You can't do this, it's impossible, nothing will change, nothing can be done about it".
The bear on the picture depicts a dear friend of mine that I met online some years ago. He always sounded happy and joyfull no matter what we would do. As we spent more and more time together, I started to notice that there were a lot of times where he wasn't happy but "tried" to be happy just to please his surroundings. Our friendship grew stronger each day until he got enough courage to tell me that he had been diagnosed with an advanced stage of depression due to a horrible event from his past and had been left with physical marks and health problems that would make him rely on continuous medication. His honesty hit me more than I can say and I just knew I had to be there for him as none seemed to care much about it. The only times he wasn't wearing a mask and feeling like a normal person was when I was around.
Helping someone suffering from depression is hard and takes time. My family treated me like a fool for trying that again but I learnt from my first failed attempt that you can't force anybody to change, some prefer to just stay the way they are and others just need enough time to reach that point where they are mentally prepared to get out of it with some help. I knew my friend was ready and he was ready for me. I stood by his side whenever he needed, even when he didn't mean to push me away. His health went worse and I helped to clear his mind for him to make the best choices to keep up with life every day. There was a lot of ambulances taking him away, a lot of trust issues from my family, a lot of words dragging me down, a lot of tears and so much stress that I literally had hair falling down (wich still hasn't fully grown back today but on it's way for it).
He was 20 at the time. He had 50% chance of not making it but battled through all the odds and kept himself motivated to see my face again. After some months of physiotherapy and going back to a normal life, he stopped being followed by a psychologist. Depression is now just a big nightmare that he left behind and I couldn't be more proud of him! This drawing was made for his 21st birthday and was made by his now girlfriend.
Don't ever let people tell you what you can't do. If you know within yourself that you can and it's right, do it.
