Depression and anxiety aren't 'trendy', they're prevalent. Because everyone today are assholes they're drowning out the good people, and making them introverted (and that shit, don't wanna list off all of it), or some?
I've been a victim of bullying and shit, I even faked my way to get into the 'inner circle' at one point just so I didn't have to deal with bullying. Since people around here seem to think trans and just all lgbtq+ for that matter are gross, it's a little hard for me to get out in public with my boyfriend or just at all because of 'how I look' or 'how I am'.
Don't make my mistakes. A word from me is, most of all the people who worked so hard to success in middle school/high school to be popular are losers who don't get anywhere in life once they get out of school.
But, there are still adults who seem to act childish and bully each other, so fuck. It's hard to escape sometimes but you just don't need to listen to it. Give 'em a good 'fuck off' to the face and leave. You don't need toxic people in your life and hell, they can be nothing to you if you really try. Just, be yourself, live in the moment, have fun, and live life to its fullest.
