Overcomer Animated Short | Hannah Grace

    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.

    I may not be a believer in god but....I still believe that you are right, People wait for fate to happen, and most of the time that fate can end with them being lost to this world and sealing their fate with death....If you want your happy ending....then you work. The. You fight. This is what i told myself, that prevented me from falling into depression. I may not have had depression and may not understand what your pain was....Each pain we feel is our own, custom pain, this means that I still understand you went through a tough battle, but that doesn’t mean I pity you! It means I’m proud that some people are able to find their light, their strength. This video just reminded me that, I will be able to be free from my own chains one day....thank you for working so hard on this animation...even small things like this....could save a life.... I know this comment was posted two years ago, but I only found this just now. And time flies huh?

    I literally found myself balling my eyes out during this video. I felt the same way she felt my entire life, and just seeing this film, has made me rethink all of those moments and she myself as girl slowly being shackled . I thank you for this video. I couldn’t find out why I was so depressed and so self conscious about myself until now, and now that I have an ideal maybe I can work on my way out of depression. Thank you.

    This made me cry and after 40 years of struggling with these kinds of chains, I realize that God through Jesus Christ, has given me the key to unlock myself from them. I do matter, but what matters most is that others matter to me. Not everyone is going to like you. No one but God can truly understand your circumstances and the pain that is in your soul. His Word really does comfort and as you grow in knowledge of Him, you grow in faith and see His real character (not what atheists or those who hate God say about Him). I take and write 2 columns: one are my emotionally charged thoughts and emotions, the other has Scripture verses relating to those thoughts and/or the truth instead of the lies. Sometimes it is hard. Even in your chains reach out to those hurting and you will find that that the chains may begin to feel less heavy. When you do find the key, those painful experiences can then help you comfort someone else. Very good video. Thank you. I'm glad you learned the truth early in life. You are encouraging so many others. Even at my age, you have given me encouragement.

    With the advent of the information age, emotions now more than ever are vulnerable to the individual. The war you fight within yourself is often the most difficult one, but you must win it. I like to think of the Vietnamese and their 45 year long struggle for independence as an example of not giving up in the face of overwhelming odds. "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. " - Mahatma Gandhi

    @HannahGrace thank you for making this video. I felt myself connected to the video because I had been in a somewhat similar situation too. My so called then friends didn't really say such harsh words but they always made me feel unwanted and untalented and maybe this is why I ended up growing in a low self-esteemed person. But I was also lucky enough to have found a true friend who helped me come out of the depression without both of us knowing what I was going through. It is now that when I look back and realize, had I not found my friend Shaily, I would have probably sunk in more deep into the depression. Existence of the God you mentioned can be proved as I found the reflection of that God in my friend Shaily. Every human born on this Earth matters and has their own worth and that worth shouldn't be downgraded by negative feelings and words of others. At the end of the day you are the creation of the God and remember that God only writes bestsellers🌻❤

    I can relate to it completely. There was a phase I was carrying weights of expectations and validation from others,waiting for a hero to transform my life. Then I realised the hero is no one but me. You are going to save yourself. You need you more than anyone else . You are your own superhero and your thoughts are your thoughts are your super powers 😊

    Have you thought of animating for Psych2go? They're a psychology channel here on YT who try to help people understand relationships (good and bad), mental illnesses like depression and anxiety, disorders like bipolar and OCD...I've found their stuff to be really helpful. I mean...I never would have understood I was going through depression if not for them...and I would never have reached out. And all their videos have cute 2D animation, so they let animators and artists apply for jobs at their channel. Maybe that'd be a distraction for you but it's just something I thought of!
