I'm a 20 year old game writer who loves writing about past experiences and sending positive vibes to everyone! Give love, get love.
I didn't know you could be depressed as a 9-year-old. I lost my grandmother when I was six, and she was the only person keeping our family together. Without her, the seams came undone. Everyone shut down, became bitter, became hateful. It also didn't help that my 4th grade teacher told me I would never amount to anything. How can you tell a 9-year-old girl, who's just not the best at math, that she'll never amount to anything?
