Depression IS REAL ! && not many like to accept the fact that they have depression. They’re scared to ask for help. But don’t be. I was. But I’m not anymore for my own good. I learned to love myself && care for myself to accept that I needed help ! Honestly, I’m not ashamed to share my story. I was depressed for a long time. Fell into drugs , alcohol , domestic violence , abuse , suicide , overdose ... you name it. Maybe it still hits now && there , but I’ve learned to truly cherish life. I’ve learned that life comes with second chances. You have to learn to love yourself to truly see past your depression. I’m not gonna sit there && lie && say I’ve never had bad days because I have. But like I said before , the only reason why I’m able to keep the light shinning is because of God. Yes I have nights where I can’t sleep , where I just cry , where I get anxiety , where I just wanna be alone , where I just wanna end my life , where I wanna run back to all my substance abuse , where I wanna simply disappear. But the one who fills all that emptiness inside is my God almighty. I owe him my life. He saved me from a million situations. So when you lay low && think who do I run to , when you think you’re alone that no one else understands , remember that God listens , God understands && God fills ! Remember that I, also understand so don’t be afraid to reach out. I’ve been there , done that. I cannot promise you that things will get better in the blink of an eye , but I can reassure you that it’s GONNA BE OK ! I speak from experience! && Remember what YOU can bring to the table && DO NOT Be afraid to eat ALONE ! Sometimes we have to eat alone to truly value ourselves && just reflect on how strong we really are. Sending positive vibes to everyone out there ! Don’t be afraid to share your story ! DM Me if anything. Trust we all need motivation. Here my journey ... 8 months into recovery && I couldn’t be happier ! Spread love not hate !
