Reach Out a Little More!

Depression

How I hate that word.

I hate what it does to people.

I hate how it makes you feel.

I suffer from depression. At one point in my life I couldn’t get out of bed. Couldn’t do the things I love to do.

Today a friend of mines sent me this message.

In my mind I was just checking up on that friend because I know someone close to him died and I lost a friend only three weeks ago so I know the place he’s in.

The purpose of this post is to encourage you to reach out a little more to those friends or family members who you know suffers from depression. My gesture meant a lot to him and yours can too.

Much 💜,

E

Medating

Morning Loves. Rise and shine!!!

Last Friday with my therapist she helped me mediate. Let me tell you it was so calming and relaxing. Now I have tried to mediate in the past but it did not work but with the help of my therapist it was amazing.

Everything was relaxed. The reason why I started to mediate was because I suffer from depression and I am really scared about taking medication. I come from a family of drug addicts and it scares me to get hooked on any type of drug. So I want to find more natural ways of helping with my depression rather than taking medications. Mediation is really good for the body and it helps me with my anxiety.

There are different ways to mediate. Do some research and find what works best for you. As for me. I don’t need music. The lights have to be dimmed down low. I have to guide myself into it with deep breaths starting wth my feet and working my way up to my head. This relaxes each part of my body.I also say breath in love and acceptance and breath out pain and anger. I stay in a relaxed state for about 5-10mins.

Give mediation a try. Relax your mind and body.

ps,

Buddha was asked what have you gained from mediation? 

He replied “Nothing! However let me tell you what I have lost. Anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, fear of old age and death.”

My Deepest Post to Date💜 

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.
