I am here for those who needs a vent, someone to listen, or to talk, or just to be there for them. Depression, self-harm, and suicidal is no fun, as the Wiggles stated, you are never alone. 

 

We game for life.

Anyone who is a part of the GFL community from players to the Directorate have a support system here. Like WigglesWorth said, get help if you are in a bad spot. There is no shame in it what-so-ever. It takes strength. Even if it is just talking to someone else. I will always be available to talk to anyone. Ive been there and we can get through it together.  ~Squid 🦑

Rest In Peace Dream, she was truly one of the friendliest staff members in our affiliates. She created many programs since 2016 that still shine today, her hard-working and dedication allowed me to keep her memorable in my collection of thoughts. God bless her mother and brother for experiencing such tragic event in front of them. We love you, Dream, you'll always be missed ;(

I will always here for anybody. Anybody who needs someone to talk to, to vent to, and anything else my door is always open. I know how it can be. Ive tried and done things in the past. I still struggle with my depression and anxiety. I know it may seem like it, but I promise its not the end of the world. I promise the good will come. There are people who love you. I know it can be hard to talk. ''The pain you bring upon yourself is carried over to your loved ones.'' Ive lived by this line ever since. Its never easy talking about whats going on in life. But I would rather someone reach out to me even though I am a total stranger than do what I have done in the past. I will always be here for anyone and ill stay up with u as long as u need. Were here for anybody as a community. As a friend. We can get through it together. We are Gamers For Life ❤️

Didn't know what happened until now, and that truly sucks. Hope the family, friends, loved ones can recover one day from this.

As for the post itself, thank you. Thank you so much.

Makes me feel at home being in a community knowing I can always reach out to someone. Same for everyone else.

And, if anyone ever needs, I'll always be here to help as well.

❤️❤️

GET THE F*** OFF SOCIAL MEDIA IF YOU ARE DEPRESSED. IM NOT JOKING, DELETE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA. It is half the reason you are depressed, and may be the driving force of your depression. 

These social platforms were designed get us hooked and people need to understand that social media is a fake fabrication of themselves and should not be taken as their actual life. On top of that the quick dopamine rush we get from likes/comments/shares eventually haunts us and leaving us craving for more.

I dont want to be the person who says it but Depression from Pre-Social Media and Post-Social Media is VERY VERY DIFFERENT and I can guarantee you that the massive amount of people who become depressed conditioned themselves through social media. Hard to swallow pills, yea, but its truth.

GET OFF FACEBOOK
GET OFF INSTAGRAM
GET OFF SNAPCHAT
I'm not joking at all, I'm dead serious from the bottom of my heart


My first hand story (Diagnosed not Conditioned)


I was Diagnosed with Depression and Dyslexia at the end of 5th grade (2011). I didn't understand either of them, Nor did I understand how to cope with them for many many years. I allowed it to consume me many times during high school and I am surprised I am still alive. It was not til I graduated High School that I realized that it wasn't going away and I needed to take charge. What was that change you ask? Let me give you some tips for those with longer waves of depression:
- Family and close friends should be the only ones that you EVER should reveal you depression to. The point is to make sure they are aware.
- Become self aware and realize when you are depressed, call it out, and go find someone to talk to. (BUT do not talk about the depression a lot, it will feed off of you and most times make it worse)
- DO NOT SPARK DEEP THOUGHTS WHILE DEPRESSED, IT WILL CONSUME YOU and leads to Suicidal thoughts


If you become paralyzed to you bed, for god sake get up and move ASAP. There were multiple times I was depressed to the point were I sat in bed staring at my wall for over 16 hours+. My emotions were stripped from me and all that was left were my thoughts. 



Finaly, beware as in the end, some people are ignorant and want to suffer for the attention. You know who I am talking about, the ones who let everyone know they are depressed, are not depressed, they are Sad/Hate their life. More and more people I find who think they are depressed but are actually just sad. The get the attention while and we lose the ones who were actually depressed. This topic is just touchy in general, telling the difference between the reals and the fakes is the first step to solving this dumpster fire of mental illnesses. Thanks for listening Edited by CrusTi

I’m not so familiar on what’s going on, but I’m familiar with the situation of suicide. About 4 years ago, a girl I didn’t know way too well took her own life because she felt as if she had no one. It made me realize I should’ve been around more. Should’ve said I was going to be there if she needed anything, and I still regret that I didn’t to this day. 

 

Now I make sure everyone knows I am there. For anyone here in this community, don’t feel as though you are alone. I’ve been down that path one too many times. I’ve unfortunately had the ideation of this situation way too much in my past. It’s a dark road to be down, so please reach out.

 

I will be there for anyone if they need. I’m one text or call away. Don’t go through ANYTHING alone. It’s okay to ask for guidance and support. You aren’t alone, and you are loved. ❤️

This is not always true.

Maybe in some cases, but not all. It isn't appropriate to generalise it.

Social Media can and does help some people feel better, meet new people and connect with others going through the same struggles. People who are able to empathise are most likely able to help someone feel better for the short term and help them reach out.

Saying the pre-social media depression is less severe than post-social media is just… not right. Maybe that's your case, but it's not entirely true.

It can serve as an escape to many to people from tough times in their real life, specially in gaming communities since it allows them to have fun and distract themselves from it. There is nothing wrong with going on social media if you're depressed, but what is wrong is using it incorrectly in ways that it will be harmful to them (announcing it to world or "looking for attention" in the wrong way).

Sometimes it's a place for someone to call their home, sometimes it's a safe space, sometimes it's just a escape from problems and just to hang out with friends and have fun.

First and Foremost, My Thoughts and Prayers goes out to Dream's Family and Friends, This is such a hard thing to move through, and i wish Every single person They knew all the best.

Secondly, If absolutely anyone needs to Talk, Whether it's just to chat to help distract themselves From life, Or to vent about literally anything, My door is always open, I'll always be willing to Talk about Anything that's going on, Don't be Afraid to come to me, Ever.

 

Lastly, Though i didn't know dream At all, I'm still incredibly sad to hear they took their own life, And i wish i could've been a friend to help them through anything they were going through.

 

Thank you for everything you've ever done, Whether it was for Someone, Or just out of raw talent, You were an Outstanding person to Everyone around you, And you'll be missed Dearly By Everyone.

 

Rest in peace, Dream.

We all hear stories about situations like this on the news and on social media but no one ever expects it to happen to someone they know, that's when this becomes so surreal. My condolences to Dream's family and friends. If you suffer from mental illness, just know you are not alone. Please, seek help.
