I’ve got some happy news for you!

Dear reader,

I’ve got some happy news for you, as you might have figured out after reading the title of this post. On October 12th my mum and I will be getting a new dog! It’s a Shih Tzu girl, completely white with a few black spots. She’s the smallest of the group and also the dirtiest, as she rolls around in her food.

We decided to name her Flødebolle, it’s the Danish name for something which I don’t think has an English name for it, so here’s a picture.

On my Facebook page you will find a folder with loads of photo’s of her. So go check it out, cause she’s a real cutie pie!

Much love,

Sam

PS: This is the first time she was in her dog basket. And no, the basket isn’t as big as it looks. The dog is just still so small. 🙂

Think before you say some things

Dear reader,

September sixth was on a Friday this year. And on that day, around 9.30 am, the majority of my classmates agreed on the matter that every person who is depressed should just simply kill themselves. Their argument? It would make the world a better place.

Those who did not agree, chose to stay entirely silent, so I don’t actually know their thoughts on this matter. I stayed silent as well, because I was simply too shocked to say anything.

However, I am one hundred per cent sure that if I would ask them about this, they’d either not remember talking about it, or they’d tell me it was a joke and that I should loosen up a bit and laugh about it.

But when you hear people say stuff like this, when you’re actually fighting a depression, it sticks with you. Joke or not. As a matter of fact, it hasn’t left my thoughts ever since… I just keep thinking about it. What if they are right? But they aren’t right. Right? Wouldn’t it be better to portrait ourselves as fighters? To show them how strong we actually are?

People really shouldn’t say things like that. Ever. You never know who might hear you and how much it can damage a person. What if someone with a depression might actually commit suicide after hearing someone say stuff like that? Even if they don’t know you. Could you live with such a burden? I think not!

I think the world would actually be a better place if everyone would start caring for each other a bit more. And if we would help one another instead of telling others to kill themselves.

Please just think before you speak.

Much love,

Sam
