  1. Here's a few more things I would like to mention as the attention in this short film has gone up in the past few weeks once again. But just a disclaimer, I'm only speaking to those who are willing to listen.

    1. You are worthless because you SAY you are worthless. Words have power- words from others AND words from yourself. The more your mind focuses on the false idea that you mean nothing, the more you will believe it to be true- the more you will WANT to believe it is true. No one can fix that but you. I can't help you, your friends and family can't help you, not until you start to open your heart to the fact that you are worth something. Once you begin that journey of accepting that fact you matter, then the support from the people around you will start to resonate. When you tell yourself you matter, every day, embedding it into your being, things will change for the better. It won't happen overnight. But in order for you to accept yourself, it takes work. Your worth is in YOUR hands.

    2. A small portion of the people in these conversations don't seem to understand the point of this film. This took me 3 months to make. I poured my heart into this. I made this coming from the light at the end of the tunnel. My life is great, I have the best friends i could ask for, and opportunities have been presented to me left and right. I'm not asking for pity, and I don't want you to feel sorry for me. I made this to let you know there is a way out. I made it out. It gets better. It truly gets better. It's hard… very hard. But the effort you put into believing yourself will pay off.

    3. No one can determine what your motives, desires and intentions are in a 6-minute, animated short. No one can determine your value, worth, personality, or life based on an animation or a piece of your creation. Some people would rather stand out by being the negative nancy, and that's their decision. Don't be mad at something you can't control.

    If you don't want help, I won't help you. If you don't believe in my faith, I won't make you believe in it. If you want to make me believe my loving God is a lie, a fairytale, a myth, etc., go ahead. Your words do not alter the truth I hold tight to. Because even in my darkest days, God's Word still worked. I give my anxiety and depression no credit, because in my weakness I was made strong. I love you guys, and it breaks my heart to see you all suffering. But you aren't alone on this journey. My God has proven to me time and time again of His love and goodness. If you want to try anything else to help you out of this hell-hole called depression, let me know. It is your choice.

  2. I have something to say about the little girl. She is basically her past self stuck but it's also where it all began. And it's also her inner turmoil bottling up all those emotions. We all have one of that little girls in us.. But when you realize that you do matter it all fades away because you reject those words,but maybe that's not enough,maybe you need to prove to yourself you matter well,you have proof right under your nose. It's yourself. Your beautiful in your own way and You matter in so many different ways You just need to open up your eyes to see those reasons.

  3. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, any excellence and anything worthy of praise, cause my mind to reside on these things. Philippians 4:8
    Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29
    Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
    And those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21
    Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
    5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,
    6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
    7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
    8 Love never fails; … 1 Corinthians 13:4-8


  4. You are an inspiration to all people everywhere! I see that God has helped you through hard times, I pray that He continues to use you to touch the hearts of billions in need of your understanding!

    Much love in Christ❤?

  5. One thing I noticed is the under-water sound while she's dreaming.
    Depression often feels like that…

  6. I was doing okay until the shackles started appearing and then the chains all around her younger self. But what broke me was when she looked up and smiled that beautifully sad smile. It's heartbreaking and you captured it just beautifully.

  7. this is great movie though Everyone tells it negatively.in 6 minutes tells about The dari secret of your life is Amaze me.you keep up The good work.maybe tomorrow you help Simeone WITH this video.peace

  8. I have no real reason to share my story right now. I feel like i just need to let it out, however i hate to talk to my family about my anxiety. I have an anxiety disorder. I feel more alone in a crowed room then when i'm really alone. i don't mind being alone, but i hate having to sit with my thoughts. i remember when i went to therapy, the doctor told me that anxiety would never completely go away, that scarred me, i guess i wasn't ready for the truth. I find myself waking up to the same demons that made me restless the night before. I hate going to school. people ask questions like why don't you ever come and they say sometimes we feel like you just aren't here anymore. And finally they get it, cause that's how i feel all the time. i have days off because sometimes i'm just too worn to fight the demons. i think of my life as a sad story, where the main character doesn't get anywhere with anything because they are useless.
    anyone who has anxiety should be able to relate to this one way or another.
    i hoped this helped people to understand what it's like

  9. we chain ourselfes from many things just becas it din't work the first time… just becas it din't work the first time, we think it wont work even on the 2nd time, we pull ourselfs back from all that we are….. if we break all our chains that is others opinion we are free to live happily….

  10. The graphic designs are beautiful here. When she grabbed and pulled to hug her younger self, I felt as if she hugged me. I felt as if she was saying I mattered. I especially liked the ending when she looked outside; a beautiful day awaits her. Then a lovely thought crossed her mind and said, “You got this.” ??‍♀️??

  11. This is relatable to every persons life Because every second person facing all this.
    So , i really liked that short film everything is good ❤️

  12. I’m seeing this for the first time, but wish I had seen it sooner. It made me very emotional because it reminded me of the realization I made about 2 years ago. If I said the kinds of things that I say to myself/ think about myself to someone else, I would be quickly labeled a complete asshole, a bully. I began to think of my own self as another, as a sister as a dear friend and I broke down when I realized it had got to the point that I wanted to end her (me) because I never realized what self love / self worth meant till that moment. I still find it difficult not to talk myself down, not to feel worthless, but going back to the thought that I am my own sister/ best friend does help. The same compassion that you show others is what you also deserve and giving yourself that is the only way you can progress positively in life.

  13. It's exactly me but god's word is saving me day by day.it would ve been so good if you add bible verses.god bless you.glory to the lord .

  14. Even though you are called worthless and incapable by people … Jesus Christ sees you as a worthy and talented person … Because he created you and he loves the way you are .. he doesn't care about ur gender , looks , profession etc , he loves you the way you are ….

  15. I am grateful to have this video in my recommendations.. and I believe yes. I am worthy . I can do this. And I will do it.. I am neither depressed nor disappointed from myself. We all make mistakes .just learn from it and move on. Life is going on wether you participate or not. So why not we participate in it and have fun in this adventure?rather than blaming ourselves 24/7 in a dark corner of room?
    Let's make it together ♥️

  16. During my 3rd year in college, I based my actions to what other people say. When they say I'm not good, I'll stop doing it. When they say I'm ugly, my self esteem goes downhill. And the more I let their words in. The more heavier it becomes to wake up every morning. "There is no reason to live" I told myself many times a day. That's when the idea of suicide comes to my mind. If no one loves me what's the point?. But then, I met someone. He told me to "accept myself" eventhough I heard this words from all inspirational post I could see on the internet but it was different when someone says it to you personally. It made me calm down for the first time. My anxiety attacks didn't came as often as it did before. And then, I realize, we forgot to be there for someone else too. The person who told me to "accept myself." Is also suffering something personal but still he was there. We should start telling each other, personally, encouraging words. We should start telling our close friends how important they are. It would make a lot of difference.

  17. I CAN RELATE TO THIS ON A WHOLE NEW LEVEL!When I was kid I was always so talkative and a little happy Child I was too small to understand! As I grew up i started realising that its not all rainbows and butterflies! I grew up seeing my parents fight and that affected on my studies I became a slow learner I used to go for counciling but that didn't help much and as we lived in a joint family my grandparents used to always favour my uncle's wife over my mom due to which my mom was in sever depression and tried to harm herself twice and she was depressed to a point where she always used to talk about death and that had a bad affecte on my childhood I always used to cry for no reason! And then I started being bullied at school i couldn't tell anyone bec my mom had bigger problems and besides her nobody would AcctuAlly listen so I gave in and was bullied actively for 10 years! And then my own grandparents used to compare me w my cousins and tell me I'm not like them and I'm ugly and stuff and now it's affecting me it affected me as a child and its affecting me as an adult! I'm not happy in my skin I hate myself I developed anxiety , depression Body Dismorphia and just a mess now when I look back at this video I feel it has a different and deeper message than the last time I watched this! And if this helped me in anyway Yes I am trying brace my flaws and be myself its hard but we'll get there someday!❤?

  18. Wow Hanna thank you so much, you have no idea how hard that hit me because that was me years ago… I felt that way, vary empty inside, felt like no one cares and I was going no where in life. Even felt like my family was excluding me from them. But the truth was I was burring myself with the lies I was believing in my head, and growing up in a home with an abusive step father didn't help with the lies and how I felt. Then God woke me up, for many years tho I carried hurt, pain, resentment, anger… baggage I needed to let go of. I went to a church outting and gave it all to God, he told me I was an over Comer of all those things and that I can live a happy life. Watching your video reminded me of all the things I've over come and brought a tears to my eyes. So thank you so much ?. And for those that have read this far down, your not alone, don't believe those lies in your head, you are loved and you can over come, you do matter and there are people out there that need you. Have an awesome day and God bless you!

  19. 20th Feb… its thts ur real bday…we share it then.. apart from this… I could relate to this by bits but I have become very resilient and optimistic. I hope my hopes will be worthy ❤

  20. Beautiful work.. It resonates to me 100%, I almost cried. Everything comes from childhood, many talents and gifts can be hidden if you weren't loved as a child. My parents were always fighting and they had no time to show love to me, I never felt loved as a child and now, after so many years, I started to love my inner child self and day by day I'm finding how many gifts I have and how many beautiful things I can create.. and world is beautiful place and it can offer many thing.. if you gad abusive childhood you need to love your self first and everything will transform. Love your child self and you ll love yourself here and now .. and you ll be happy

  21. All this happened to me in my childhood. I was bullied , felt ugly, left alone, teased, and treated as if i needed 'special attention'. I was looking for true friendship as i believed in it. Now im 32 and been abused by various people but i learned that such friendship doesnt exist. I am overcoming and I love being alone and im strong only because i found peace in Buddhism.

  22. Subscribed you.really strong message. I was in the same place as the little girl many years ago..now I m proud that I have overcame that phase of my life..It teaches us to give life another chance..give ourself another chance..

  23. What an absolutely beautiful short. Thank you Hannah for offering some love in a world full of suffering. Time to light up the darkness ?

  24. You are fearful and wonderful made!..read Psalm 139 !..declare and decree:made in God's image,so your beautiful!..

  25. That broken smile when the last chain was linked… And I found myself yelling, "No! No child! You are loved! You aren't alone! And even if you are, I will hold you! And cry with you.. and I realized that child.. was me. I broke down crying. I allowed others to chain me. To define me… To hurt me. And I hurt myself along with them.

    I realized this recently. And now I've been working on removing those chains. One by one. Step by step. Ignoring the negativity from those who want to keep me chained. Until I get to where I want to be.

    This video pretty much summed up everything I was feeling. And it made me feel less alone. Thank you for sharing this.

  26. Dear , you just pictured what i was going through and at age 25 now i am creating a new me together with my christ .. good creativity . May God bless you
