    Depression As a child I always seemed to be carefree and happy, but in truth I was scared. I was scared I wouldn't be able to do anything to make my parents as proud of me as the middle sister had or I would let them down to the extent that the oldest sister had. I was constantly compared to both. I was never good enough to surpass one, but I was never as deplorable as the other. I never seemed to be who everyone else wanted me to be. At the age of eleven I traded school districts. I was in…
