You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
this speaks to me, because I went through a state of depression not to long ago, and I hid it with a smile or if anyone asked how I was, I would just say “I’m fine” or “I’m just tired”. it got to the point to where I tried to kill my self twice. I did it by trying to choke my self to death with a belt, but I would back out because of my fear of death.
eventually I stopped getting depressed and I don’t know why.
