I've honestly had a pretty rough summer. Nothing huge has happened but I've never felt actually depressed like this ever before. I guess depression runs in my family but I never expected to be affected by it, let alone be affected so suddenly.
I know that if I was strong enough I could pull myself out of this mood, and I have for brief periods this summer, but sometimes we need a little help.
I know I'm not the only one having a tough time recently so I wanted to make this post to remind us all that we're valuable people who can pull through anything.
I know it's not easy to accept help
and you can start to feel like a burden when ASKING for help
But this community won't let you be sad alone for long
We'll come at you when you least expect it
and even if our love isn't perfect
We're all in this together
cause we're a FAMILY!
and honestly, more times than not, life is tough
But you've got a shoulder to lean on here
So let's just listen to music and be with our friends
because without darkness, you'd never see the light
so let's at the very least, aim to have a good day - then we can work on good weeks and good years.
and please know that my inbox is always open to talk about anything. I think we all need a daily reminder that we're worth it.
