Is it Okay for Teenagers to have or Sleep with Stuffed Animals from Depression?

Lot of people would make fun of me, just because I still have stuffed animals. They would say, stuffed animals are for babies. :/
Is it still okay to have stuffed animals or not for depression?

Who cares what others say, if you feel comfortable doing so and it works for you then continue. If it makes you feel better...I collect stuffed Snoopys, AND I'M AN ADULT O.O

I remember beanie babies were a thing among all ages, especially adults. As long as you're not roll playing with them in your spare time and making them "bark" :P Who doesn't love something plush?

I don't have depression, but I'm a teenager and I have a bunch of stuffed animals in my room. Reminds me of good times, and I just think they're cute.
If they help you deal with your depression, then who is anyone to judge?

Take at least your favourite one with you!
You'll likely find you aren't the only one!
I'm 53 and went away to college, lived and travelled the world over the years; always with my trusty mascot Smurf!:-). There's a comfort to having that piece of home whenever-wherever.

Most people, when they are depressed want someone to hold them...or them to hold someone. A stuffed animal will do just fine until the right one comes along. No one needs to know how you sleep. It's really nobody's business. Somethings need to be kept to yourself.

Gzzz, you can have stuffed animals forever. People worry too much about stuff that doesn't concern them.Do you have a " Build A Bear " where you live? Walk in any given day and you will see an adult "turning around 3 times "
No worries!

You feeling safe and comfortable is way more important than what others might say. I know that sounds easy because no one is saying that stuff to me, but I'm guessing they wished they had something too.

Stuffed animals have been around for along time and trust me it is OK to sleep with them. I think they give you a feeling of comfort and I still sleep with mine I am 53 lol! I use them for pillows on the couch and fall asleep all the time. Don't worry about it nobody cares if you enjoy stuffed animals these days it is all the rage!! They do tend to need washing every so often just like a pillow so keep them clean and enjoy your dreams!

Yolo, right? Keep them stuffed animals with ya. I still have my bear from when I was 6 months, anyway. Why would you care on what others think? That shows that words can bring you down. So forget on what they think. Have fun in life! <3 Toodles! :D (By the way, I'm 23..I still have my stuffed animals for God sake. ;) )
