    I love this post! These are all such great things to keep in mind, I especially love that you said there are no wrong decisions, I agree and think it’s so so true and also one of the hardest things to remember!

    Thanks for sharing your experience! I really appreciate your honesty about depression and anxiety — I dealt with that a lot in high school and college, and I get little spurs of anxiety here and there, but nothing like it was before!

    I would tell my future self to listen to my body and to trust that it is always trying to tell me something (because it never lies). I would tell myself to never ignore these signals, to breathe deeply, turn off my mind, and just focus on healing the pain.

    I LOVE your blog. Somehow, most of your posts relate to what I am going through. Just moved to a new state, in a transition and need to remember that nothing is permanent. Anything can change with just one phone call. PS my family is from Rye too :)

    Welcome back to San Francisco! I don’t blame you for wanting to experience New York…it is one of my favorite cities and something I wish I did too! But SF is preeeettyyy magical as well. :o) Thanks for sharing this article! I can definitely relate to it on many levels (per usual with your posts!) Have a great day and good luck with the move!

    Hi Amanda!
    My name is Delilah I’m 25 and I suffer from depression and anxiety (which has been more severe as of late). In your post you mentioned different ways you cope with it. It would be really helpful if you could share that information with me. I have overcome a lot and am stronger, I often get stuck in the fact that its never going to go away and that I’m going to have to live with this mental illness forever. Thanks for your time!

    p.s. my blog is from college and just a compilation where I could store my best writing pieces.

    If possible email is best!

    I’ve only just come across your blog today, snd after reading a lot more posts then I care to admit; I’d just like to say thanks. It’s so great to sit here and read about your experiences and know that I am not alone in my situation, just knowing that you’ve gone through similar troubles and have come out on top is reassuring. I’m incredibly grateful for your bravery of opening up to the internet and I hope that you continue on your path onwards. I’ll be there one day, because of you!
