There isn’t a person in the world who loves harder or loves deeper than them.
Depression isn’t glamorous and I am so thankful “One Tree Hill” portrayed it in a realistic way.
People hid things about themselves because they are paralyzed at the prospect of hearing judgment, because they don’t have the tools to heal, because they don’t know such tools exist, because they are cowed into accepting mistreatment.
Stop worrying about seeming selfish, and do what you need to do to heal. Remember, no one can heal you but yourself.
I would consider myself an enthusiastic, outgoing and involved person — that’s why when some selected people found out I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, they didn’t believe me.
I’m not going anywhere. No one is seeing me. I’m alone. Why shower? Why waste time and energy to repeat the same task tomorrow?
But the truth is, it takes strength to admit you’re not okay. It takes a lot of courage to talk about what’s going on inside your head. The problem is admitting you’re not okay can make some people uncomfortable and people disconnect themselves from things that make them uncomfortable, unless they truly care.
I promise, in the darkest hours, I will be the one holding your hand through therapy, medication and recovery with the same courage you put in the world when you’ve opened your heart to light.
You become more isolated than ever while continuously telling yourself that you’re okay. Better days are ahead. Yet, you’re not sure how far ahead those days are. And how long you can keep living this way for a day that may never come.
In the movies when you’re depressed everything is better.The pretty girl dates you so that she can fix you.
