2 days ago · · Depression,
I've never done something like this but I felt better late than forgetting. Over the past few months I've thought to myself "you are not depressed, there is no way you're depressed, stop acting sad, it's pathetic" and that was my realization moment that I had and have depression. Depression is different for every individual, some talk openly about it while others keep silent and stay in their own thoughts. I've been on both sides of depression, I've been the listener and the talker along with the one talking about my own experience in living with depression. I learned that depression is not a disease, it's a bit of a challenge if you will. Depression hurts, depression drains every bit of energy and happiness in me, it makes me so freaking emotional in the morning, it makes me want to scream until every ounce of sadness leaves but that won't happen so soon. I have to fight, we all have to fight and keep going. One more day living with depression is another day fighting depression and not letting depression win against our strength. It has helped me to write down my feelings, do art, step outside, dress up for no reason, put on makeup for no reason, take a deep breath and try to be happy that I have movement in my body, can see, smell, taste, hear and touch. Depression is a battle worth winning and to be honest, who wants to say "I lost?". You will make it, you will cry, you will feel hopeless, you will feel dead inside sometimes, you feel phantom tears, you will have your happy moments and thankful moments. Nothing is better than working to better yourself daily. I feel like crap but I made it out of bed today, that's pretty amazing.
Stay safe out there reader and I love you, you will make it whether you're depressed or stressed or both.
