Depression is a silent killer that many ignore until they get to the point where they say, “If I just let go, I’d be set free.” Don’t let someone you know and care about get to that point and try to be the person that makes them realize they need to seek help before they have ‘Given Up’.
The songs sung by Chester as Linkin Park’s lead singer got me through tough struggles and still do get me through tough times. I just wish someone would have seen the signs that he was not okay sooner.
It just goes to show how carefully we have to be when someone says “I’m okay.” Those words are loaded and very dangerous, because they may be hiding what’s really going on inside their head.
Dont allow someone to think they’re alone with their battles.
