Depressing Darkness

“Depressing Darkness”

What does that mean?

It is Mental Health Awareness Month, and this week we are talking about depression.

Depression is a very serious and unfortunately common mental health issue. 

Like anxiety, depression affects everyone differently. 

Depression often carries such a negative stigma that it becomes very difficult for people to talk about and seek help for. 

They often feel like they are alone in their own darkness. but that doesn’t have to be the case. 

Your darkness is not completely unique; allow for other people who have found the light at the end of the tunnel to shine a light on your darkness. 

Your struggles are designed to keep you isolated, but there is healing in being vulnerable enough to share your burdens with others. 

The more we talk about things like depression, the more we realize that we aren’t alone in the darkness. There are people out there dealing with similar issues, and there are people who have survived much worse. 

If you are a survivor, if you have made it out of your own darkness, use your testimony as a light to help others see a way out themselves.

If you are currently in the darkness, please know that you are not alone and it is okay to talk about your struggles. Don’t let pride and ego lie to you. Being in the darkness doesn’t mean you are weak, and being brave enough to be vulnerable enough to talk about it is a sign of true strength, grit, and resilience.

Stop self-medicating and seek professional help to get you started on the path towards a better, happier life. 

Shine a light on your darkness.
