    Ben commented on the post, Nothing but Cold

    I have never heard family love described like this but at the same time, it makes so much sense. I envision myself by a warm fireplace but I don’t feel at home until I have my family right next to me. It must be so awful that you had nothing to protect you from the cold! Just know that somewhere out there someone wants to be present and provide…Read More

    For the most part, my inner voice was the same for most of my life up until the end of my sophomore year.  I grew tired of being slightly goofy while being very self-conscious so I took action and made a change.

    • Ben,
      I’m glad that you were finally able to get rid of that second voice that had been dragging you down for so long. I know that I also had a problem, but rather than getting down I would just hesitate before doing things because I was scared of what others would think of me. But as I got older, I realized that if they didn’t like me for me, then they weren’t really that close with me to begin with. Thank you for sharing your story and I hope to read more from you in the future.

    Ben commented on the post, Unwanted Letter

    The message within this post is a phenomenal one and I think all high schoolers should see this. Under-confidence results in a very poor self-image and it is so unhealthy for anyone’s mental health. At the same time we need to make sure we don’t let this become over-confidence where we are arrogant.

  • What a great issue to write about! I think this issue is so important in our society today because depression can lead to traumatic things like suicide which devastates the whole surrounding community. The huge issue is that people are afraid to get help and they aren’t willing to go and get treatment. So this is what spurs my question – How do…Read More
