I've learned to cope with depression.
I still live as if it doesn't exist
but if you got a problem with it,
and your not willing to understand it
than you shouldn't even talk to me.
I hit bumps in the road
just like anybody else.
Depression doesn't define me,
doesn't make me who I am.
It's just a struggle,
not my identity.
I always come out the other side.
Haven't needed pills in so long.
I'm doing just fine
coping on my own.
Therapy once a week
and a support system to back me.
I don't need you to feel sorry for me.
I know where I'm going.
I know what I want
and my struggles only fuel me.
If you have an issue with me
then I suggest you leave.
I don't need your negativity.
I don't need you
to treat me like a charity case.
