You aren’t your depression
Rainy days have always put me in a reflective mood.
It’s on these days that I truly look at my progress or lack thereof and try to imagine the next step.
It has taken years for this reflection time to become a positive and not a negative. I used to look at my past and see an endless amount of failure and sadness.
So, as a result rainy days were bad days, but now they have become days to see potential within myself.
Yes, I may experience great moments of loneliness or sadness but it’s no longer who I am.
I’m no longer defined by my depression and you don’t have to be either. I know it may seem that way now because depression has the power to control your whole life– it can take you away from the things you once loved and turn you away from your social networks.
It is my warning to you: Don’t let yourself be pulled into the pits of depression alone because it’s a hard battle that you don’t have to face by yourself.
People may not fully understand what you are going through but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be there for you. You are loved more than you will ever know.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help! You matter and there is hope for a better future!
