“Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.”
To ask for help when the waves are rough is to exemplify the understanding of strength in numbers. Armed services members who have survived the most unthinkable distress will tell you it’s ingrained throughout all of their training that when overwhelmed, you call for back up and utilize the power of the team. A response that when applied to mental health can be just as life-saving for those who feel they are emotionally drowning.

Excerpt from Andrea Gibson’s “Say Yes”

I 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.
