What Prettiness Does Not Equal

I can’t believe a 17-year-old wrote this. Also, yes Rookie.

I had always been so sensitive, felt things so deeply and easily, and now I didn’t have to. Anxiety is wanting to live so badly everything is a threat. Depression is not wanting to live at all. They are inextricably linked, yet worlds apart…
…What I’m trying to do is cultivate and grow my own ideas about what’s going to be important to me. And if those are counter to what I have been taught, then they are my own little acts of revolution.
