It wasn't a very long hike, although, it felt like it was. Our hike to the Hollywood sign felt like such a long one but I think it was just a little bit over an hour!
In 2018 I had my first big trip from Australia to America with my sister! And I must say, it was expensive but worth every dollar! An experience that I will never forget and will always look back on and cherish. And because I am such a movie buff, of course, I did not miss to take a photo of the giant LAX sign outside the airport while sitting in the back of my Uber ride! If you want to take the same photo, I truly hope that the photo I took provides enough details, because I was so excited about the trip that I actually had to put in the effort in focusing and waiting for the sign just so I could take the picture!
First of all, I would like to make it clear that "how I've coped" is not really all that accurate to address this topic. When it comes to mental health, I personally think that it is an ongoing "coping" situation. I guess the best way to describe this that I could think of would be that there are never-ending 'milestones.' There are milestones that I have reached and there are milestones that I still must reach and look forward to. Like physical health, our mental health is something that we need to take care of constantly.
Depression. According to Wikipedia this is what it means:
We all feel anxious about something, or certain situations; an exam, going on a trip somewhere on your own for the first time, asking someone to go on a date with you. It's all different for everyone. Things that I might find easy, you may find difficult, and vice versa. But for some people, like me, almost everything makes me anxious, even things that I have done a million times before. But I'm fighting it, and if you're like me, hopefully you're fighting it too. It’s hard to be living everyday afraid and/or worried about a lot of things! We’re literally living in fear!
The one that got away? Is that real? Did they actually "get away," or did we let them get away? Did we have a choice in the matter, or is “fate” actually a real thing?
