From the outside, it looks like you have an amazing life. But inside, you’re falling apart.
Depression can make life feel hopeless and lead to feelings of worthlessness and sadness. Sometimes, you know in your head that there are so many good things happening. However, it doesn’t always connect to the heart. You may struggle through each day, but inside you are exhausted and falling apart from the effort of making it work.
Sometimes when you lose yourself, your relationships suffer and shatter. When experiencing depression, you can convince yourself that your loved ones would be better off without you. Depression can make you lose sight of the hope and joy in your life. All you can see is the darkness that surrounds you. Depression can be like a tunnel.
Depression can steal your joy and leave you feeling broken. But, it doesn’t have to feel like this. You can take back your happiness and purpose.
