Madie lost people she thought were her friends because they bullied her about her freckles. Even though her mom always told her that her freckles were “kisses from angels,” Madie fell into depression because of the things people said about her. She was put on antidepressants and sent to a counselor but was very uncomfortable in the counselor’s office. After about a month on the prescriptions, Madie’s mindset began to change and she stopped worrying about what other people thought of her. She also realized that there is never a need to be rude or angry and she stopped fighting with the people she loved. Eventually, she even learned to just brush off what people said without holding a grudge and without letting their words change how she felt about herself. Madie has since gotten off the medication and discovered that continuing all the changes is fully her decision. She realized that she just had to change her mindset in order to “not give a crap” about what people said to her. She now fills her life with love and easiness instead of conflict and hate. Madie advocates that society needs to stop taking the easy way out by just medicating those diagnosed with mental illness. Instead, we need to dig to the root of the problem and get people the actual help that they need. Going through this, she has found a love for psychology. She loves learning everything about the brain, personalities and behavior because she has experienced how to make changes in her life. She wants to help others discover their own strengths and improve their mental health. She is currently in college enjoying sorority life and majoring in Psychology with a minor in Sociology.
