I am proud of you. You made it. You rose above your environment and are an amazing person.
Trigger warning: Suicide, depression Growing up as a church kid who suffered from severe depression, I was not met with the type of counsel and comfort one might have expected.
I think you’re brave, because even though you didn’t know how you were going to provide for your kids, you found a way to do it while keeping them safe, and they will thank you for that one day.
