THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE DD AND THE COMMENTS EVERYONE! I'll try and reply as soon as I can :heart: THANK YOU, YOU'RE LOVELY

This is the first video I make (it was filmed with a Nikon 3100, the same camera I used to take my pictures). It's for a contest held by :iconneverbealone: called I am not my illness: [link]
The lovely music belongs to david ([link]) from Jamendo, and it's under a CC license that allows me to use it as long as I give credit to the artist. The song is called J'y suis j'y reste and it's from this album [link] :D



Thank you a lot for watching :D
I made this hoping it will help people who suffer from depression, angst, panic, any kind of issue related to it (each of them is very common in society nowadays, and it's totally normal, though it can be terrible when you live it)
Remember: if there's an exit then there's no problem at all :) And you'll surely find an exit! Good luck, hope this helps.


If lots of people like it or find this useful, I'll probably make a spanish subbed version for this :)

No stealing.

Also thanks to :iconrhazmagot87: for helping me to film myself :heart:

Daily Deviation

You are not your illness by ~patamfreti This blew me away. The amount of time and effort put into making this film is clear and it contains such a powerful, wonderful message that many can relate to. It's incredibly well-made, it's touching and asserts one important fact to those suffering from illness: It does not define you. (written by suggester) ( Suggested by bowie-loon123 and Featured by Moonbeam13 )

Well it isn't that I don't like to express my self, is just that if I do everybody could look at me like an alien or a smart-ass or a jerk or an idiot, it's my inability to make contact with other people that makes me disappointed and ashamed of my self, I know I'm not the only one with this problem because I have heard of other people like me, like I recently have read a post of a guy named Jonas Kyratzes where he talks about his experiences in school and I can relate to it [link], there is also the writer Hermann Hesse who's experiences where very similar to mines, and 3 months ago I was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome but I can't even relate with my own kind, the only place where I can express my self is in The Venus Project, there everybody ask questions about many different subjects, the people is always talking about our social problems and look for a solution, but when I try to talk to normal people about that they look at me like a weird person, and that is why I rather shut up and let people think the way they do, even if I have good intentions.

I think I'm blessed because I'm can be more reasonable but I'm also cursed because I just cant relate to the world, I probably just need to read books on semantics but I'm too busy wasting time in my imaginary world. I hope I don't feel bad after saying all this.

Perdon por no expresarme bien: yo hablo español, simplemente no habia entendido que habias querido decir.
Tu situacion no suena como una agradable de vivir, pero, asi como vos mismo explicaste, Hesse (genio), Kyratzes, y muchisima gente mas, pasa por lo que vos pasas dia a dia. Me alegro mucho cuando lei que dijiste que te sentis bendecido porque podes ser mas razonable, a pesar de que te cueste mas conectarte con el mundo. Con lo que no concuerdo es con la palabra 'cursed'. Yo no creo que estes maldito, para mi ese termino no existe. Al leer tus palabras me di cuenta no solo quizas de tu inseguridad para expresarte sino tambien del valor y la voluntad de hacerlo de todos modos. Lo que si, trata de no dividir entre gente 'normal' y vos: estamos todos en el mismo mundo intentando descubrir quienes somos, intentando resolver nuestras dificultades, atravesar nuestras barreras, de todo un poco.
Siempre va a haber gente que te juzgue, pero eso significa que siempre va a haber gente que no. Yo creo que tenes la importante habilidad de ver las dos caras de la moneda, y que quizas en lo que deberias concentrarte es en lo fuerte que sos ya de por si en conectarte con lo que te pasa y en intentar sobrellevarlo, aunque sea por internet, aunque sea despacito, no importa.
No te sientas mal porque te cueste, sentite bien porque lo haces de todos modos, yo veo mucha voluntad en lo que escribis. Creeme, no estas solo.

Unas de las cosas que dices son ciertas pero no estoy de acuerdo con todo lo que dices, sin embargo prefiero no decir porque pues tengo miedo de ofenderte, esa es una manera corta de explicar mi problema, tengo miedo de ofender a otros con mis pensamientos, me hace sentir que me odian, siento culpa y vergüenza por hacerlo así que prefiero guardar silencio, eso pasa porque soy el tipo de persona que le gustaria ver a las personas ayudándose, quiero ver las personas con problemas ser ayudadas y verlos disfrutar la vida.

No deberías de pensar que me siento débil, yo solia estar peor, solia ser un chico amargado, me sentia ignorado por todos y pensaba que nunca iba a encontrar alguien a quien le importara, pero eso termino hace un año cuando decidi hacer algo impensable, no, no me refiero a tratar de matarme, es algo mucho mas alocado, decidi dejar la escuela (no te alteres, pienso en volver a ella este año, pero de una manera muy diferente), lo hice porque pense que era la raíz de todos mis problemas, y estaba en lo correcto pues desde entonces he echo un enorme progreso en superar muchos de mis problemas, he aprendido el verdadero significado del amor y cada vez mas aprendo a ser menos dependiente de lo que me rodea, es como si cada mes fuera otra persona, mas feliz y mas sabia, todavía tengo problemas como el que mencione pero estoy seguro que pronto los superare.

No me ofenderia, pasa que yo trate de decirte algo con muy poca informacion, por lo que me parece que aunque me esfuerce es muy probable que me equivoque, ya que a final de cuentas, solo hablaba sin saber mucho.
Si algunas personas te odian porque das tu opinion, entonces esas personas no valen la pena. Tu opinion es sencillamente tu opinion y estas en tu derecho de tenerla (claro que al decirla, hay formas y formas). No ayudas a alguien privandolo de tu opinion, simplemente te perjudicas D:
Perdon por pensar que eras debil, no fue mi intencion ofenderte si lo hice. Me alegro mucho de que hayas tomadp decisiones en cuento a tu bienestar, aunque yo no veria la escuela como raiz de tus problemas simplemente porque al dejarla mejoro, a veces lo que se necesita es un cambio y ese cambio es lo que causa una mejoria personal increible, pero no necesariamente la escuela es mala :P
Por supuesto que los supereras pronto, de eso se trata! De a poco, con paciencia, sin perder esperanzas, y sin dejar de disfrutar las cosas que pasan dia a dia, ya que la vida es esta, ya la estamos viviendo. Mucha gente comete el error de pensar que la vida es algo que esta por venir, que uno va a empezarla pronto, y la postergan como cualquier tarea frivola. No digo que este sea tu caso necesariamente, solo digo por decir, y para dar un consejo.
Sigue en tu camino que aparentemente vas muy muy bien <3 gracias por compartir conmigo tus sentimientos.

Nothing stays the same forever, eventually people will get away from what makes them unhappy or insecure and they'll look back on everything and think "I was silly for thinking nothing would change".
