friendly reminder that Harry Potter
- at eleven, was described by his teachers as ‘bright’
- at the same age, according to the Sorting Hat: “Not a bad mind, either. There’s talent, oh my goodness, yes” and “You could be great, you know, it’s all here…
"you have so much to live for"
"but you’re smart/funny/beautiful/talented—you know that, right?"
"you matter, don’t ever forget that"
congratulations, i already fucking know.
here’s the issue with my personal experience with depression: i have a very logical way of approaching things and can fully understand, believe, and comprehend one thing while emotionally disagreeing with it.
