If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest and best things you will ever do.

One of my biggest role models for living through adversity. This guy is one of the 5 people who have made me want to become famous and fabulous, take over the world or just be known across the globe - to prove to others just like me that we can achieve so much, even when we are hurt and broken or mistreated and rejected.
