Monday Blues: Through The Forest

Through The ForestI say that for people who don’t know depression, life for them is like taking a walk through an open meadow. Sometimes they hit a ditch they couldn’t see coming and fall, but they get up and continue on their way. For me, that walk through life can be more like walking through a dense forest. When I fall, I can’t get up as fast. But I also know who I am; the depression is not me. I no longer beat myself up for giving myself the extra time to catch my breath when I fall. And when the depression hinders my path, I know that I hold the power to move the branches aside.

If you or someone you know is in need of help,
or to learn more about depression, warning signs, and treatment options,
call or visit the National Suicide Lifeline:
