Dealing With Depression


Saturday, February 16, 2019

This is such a sensitive topic. I chose to keep my depression and daily struggles a secret to society every since it began. I shared my difficulties with some family members and a couple of close friends. Depression isn't something to boast about or flaunt around. I've kept my emotions tucked away in fear of rejection. To be honest though... keeping everything in was damaging my mental health even more. Last year & now this year has been a season of growth for me. I've always been one to generally follow the crowd and do everything I can to fit in. 

2018 taught me a lot about myself.

As 2019 continues to pass by..I find myself meeting new milestones that I didn't think possible. My ultimate dream is to be able to just be there for anyone who feels like they have no one. Sometimes it's hard to reach out to direct family and friends because you might feel vulnerable. The good news is... that is 100% OKAY. There are people out there that are trained professionals or just people like myself, that has been through what you're dealing with, that understands. 

Depression and anxiety are my foes. I fight them both on a daily basis. Not every day is bad but not every day is good either. I try to wake up with a thankful mind but it's not always easy. My biggest downfall is that I wear my heart on my sleeve and I do a LOT for the people I care about. If I don't get back what I'm putting out then I sometimes feel like a failure. Honestly, I know that sounds selfish but if I go out of my way to do something for you then appreciation would be nice. 

I am working on me.

I plan to start a journal for when I'm feeling anxious or a little extra down that day. I would also really like to start yoga/meditating.. but I'm still looking into that one. On that note, if you have any tips or tricks to settling the anxious feelings or even dealing with depression.. LET ME KNOW! Knowledge is power and the more we're vocal on social media .. the more we're helping everyone just like us that could be reading this. I love being able to open up and be so raw & real about my life.
