In Germany we don’t say “I love you”. We say “Des intressiert mi ois ned, der Scheißdregg. Weltmeister simma, den Pott hamma. Den Scheißdreck ‘Goidna Schua’ konnst da hinda d’Ohrn schmiern.” which roughly translates to “You’re looking nice”. I think that’s beautiful.
I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality
and if you’ve had depression since early childhood you don’t even know if you have your own personality
you didn’t have time to be a person before depression
and it’s scary having no idea who you are
