In a fleeting moment a friend told me she was dealing with depression. She didn’t tell me more about it just that she’s been dealing with it. For the last couple of days I didn’t know what to write about. In order for me to write a post I have to feel it. It’s hard to explain but if I don’t feel it I can’t write it.
So today in honor of her I would write a message to you in hopes to help you because when I was depressed I wanted someone to help me.
A two years ago I was dealing with depression. At the time I didn’t know what it was. All I knew is that I just wanted to be left alone. Just stopped living my life. Work and school? I just stopped going. Taking a shower was to much energy. All I wanted was to stay in my bedroom. I was at rock bottom in my life. I just found out my boyfriend was cheating on me, I didn’t have the money for school, I just gave up on life and on top of that I was dealing with family drama.
As I type this post I don’t know how I overcame it. I do know it was hard work. I prayed and I had a great support system.
To anyone that’s dealing with depression. I know where you are because I too have been there. Reach out to someone so they can help you. If you have a religion pray to your God. Let him know you need him to guide you.
Don’t give up on life. Life is hard I can attest to that. But don’t ever give up hope because it will get better, again I can attest to that. To my friend I hope this post finds you in a better spirit. I am here if you need it. May God guide you like he did me.
