For years I was told by friends and family that I was overly dramatic and overreacting to situations around me. I was told to “just get over it” and “be normal.” For all those years I tried desperately hard to act like everyone around me. Yet I always realized that they had something that I didn’t have. They were able to process events and not get upset. They weren’t changing from extremely happy to super sad in the matter of hours. They didn’t think about killing themselves every moment of the day. They didn’t get relief by cutting up their bodies. Something was different, and I just couldn’t figure it out.
"Just Get Over It"
