Found this ad in a Nickelodeon magazine from 2004.
If today I woke up with you right beside me
Like all of this was just some twisted dream
I’d hold you closer than I ever did before
And you’d never slip away
And you’d never hear me s a y

when you’re reading a book and the main character dies
leaving the house when you’re depressed is tough! you have those small victories like taking a shower but no one will celebrate that with you and you feel so small and so ridiculous for being proud of yourself in the first place.
but - life moves on, even when you just want to take a small break. the world won’t stop spinning even for a minute for you to catch your breath. you just needed a minute and now catching up will take months or years and worst, you might not be able to. you only admit this to yourself and don’t tell your friends or family about this terrible fear, that you’ve been robbed of time you can’t make up for. that they’re all living with something you lost and don’t even notice it.
what’s a girl to do? why not take advantage of the fact you managed to shower and apply some perfume?
you may not be happy. you may want to crawl back into your bed to sleep. but would anyone guess that the girl who smells like lavender lemonade thinks about killing herself the way she imagines other people think about winning the lottery - it won’t happen but isn’t it nice to dream?
you wear perfume because its the easiest, smallest victory. hey, you may have avoided that phone call but you’re wearing black orchid to work and alien when your friends convince you that you really should leave the house, just for tonight. come on, we haven’t seen you in forever. is something wrong?
no. nothing’s wrong. maybe some girl will smile at you as if you’re actually alive and not just faking it. maybe, maybe. maybe you’ll be asked by the cute cashier what IS that perfume, you smell so lovely.
things won’t get better. but you have to create small moments of joy for yourself. you just have to.
