Small Break Between The Clouds


Saturday, March 3, 2018

I have been wanting to share something very personal and close to my heart but I just haven't had the courage to go through with posting it. I wrote out a long blog post this past week but couldn't hit publish. However, because this disease affects so many people nationwide I have decided to open up with you guys and be 100% raw about a small part of my life. 

Depression. 

There is so many things inside that one, singular word. 

From my early teens up until my adult life I have suffered depression periodically in life. It kind of came out of nowhere and at first I thought it was just hormones cause you know... early teen years. However, after a couple years I grew to realize that this was just part of me now. Depression always comes in waves for me and doesn't normally last very long. To be honest, I'm not even sure what triggers it sometimes. 

Depression is like feeling nothing but everything all at once. 

If there's something I've learned over the years is that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. It's just a bad day, not a bad life. I try to keep really positive vibes when going through the motions of depression. If you allow the disease to control you it can ruin your whole life. 

Next time you see someone being a little stand offish or quiet.. don't assume they're stuck up. Sometimes being in a crowded room is when I feel the most alone. 

Maybe eventually I will be able to really open up about my story and share some personal stories but at this time.. I just wanted you to know that you are not alone. Also, if you EVER need to talk to someone or just cry.. please send me a message! I never want someone to feel like it's just them amongst a sea of faces.
