Photo taken by first-time contributor Jesse, a 19-year-old artist who fights depression and anxiety. Lacking close friendships, Jesse found comfort in creative self-expression, especially poetry and photography. After struggling through a year of severe depression, he felt his life fading faster and faster. Jesse finally sought out help in the form of therapy and medication, which have aided in his stabilization and recovery.
About this photo: “Fragile is my desire to be free. I want to be able to go places without anxiety holding me back. The wings and desire are there, but they are too weak to take me. They are twigs, so easy to break and fail me.”
