I wanted to tell you all something: you are sad for NOTHING.
There are much worse off people out there, so quit feeling sorry for yourself.
On a more sensitive note:
I have been there. you can see in my gallery, my pieces got downright deppressing, and i was feeling depressed. I was in a tough place. Until i met someone who had it so much harder than me. And you know what? She was the happiest person i have ever met. EVER! I realized i had nothing to be sorry about when i heard her story- i won't repeat it here because it is too bad to repeat on a kid-friendly site such as this. But i realized from her that happiness is something you choose- sadness is something you choose. It can be more complicated than that, sure, but overall that's all happiness is.
That woman i met, she found humor in many things and laughed when she became hurt and sad. She taught me how to live again. I haven't seen her since we first talked, but she has impacted my life so much. And I will take her words now, because I don't think i can say it better: "Make your future the happiest thing you could ever imagine. You can do it if you're not lazy! YOU CAN DO IT IF YOU CHOOSE TO!"
This piece was made in careful consideration. The bright colors, swirls of blue and green growing around Uoneko, the gleam in his eyes and his faint smile. Even the style is cuter. I chose all these to portray the happiness i feel, the happiness i wish for you. I picked Uoneko to use in this drawing because he is a happier character in general, though I must reform my fursona Apache's character to be happier as well, because i am no longer the sad pup i once was.
I hope you all take this method to heart. It might have saved my life, and it could possibly save yours. If this got featured (i know it's a lot to ask for...) i would be so happy, because it would mean that all chickensmoothie users would get the chance to see this.

EDIT: I want to clarify something!
I am not trying to put down those who have clinical depression, BPD, or other conditions like them. I am merely saying that you can only wait around in sorrow for so long, before it is time to pick up the pieces and make a better you. This is supposed to encourage you to do so; to look at yourself and the things going on "between your ears," as my dad says. I fixed myself by going through a little self-therapy, and it allowed me to forgive myself and others in my life. This DOES NOT MEAN that if you are currently depressed or sad you are in any way wrong. I know some people may not be experiencing self-pity, and perhaps are being bullied or have an actual condition. I just want to let you know that happiness is not something that just comes to you. It is something you need to find and hold on to. <3
