Lies of Depression

Blue Moon Sunset

Depression can fill our minds with lies.

We tell ourselves nothing will ever change.  We can feel the world growing smaller around us.  We have no options, no chance to grow or place to escape.  Our current pain, situation, and place in life is all we’ll ever know.

These negative thoughts can run through our minds unchallenged, because we’re hurting so much we believe it.  We can’t remember happiness.  We can’t remember that life is constantly changing.  We can’t remember that we have options, that there’s hope.

Even when we’re feeling at our lowest, there is always hope, even if we don’t believe it.

Let’s get help when we need it, laugh as often as we can, surround ourselves with inspiration, and do our best to stay strong when we’re at our weakest.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Depression has a way of sneaking up on you, especially when you ignore it.  Unfortunately, it’s not something that will go away by pretending you don’t notice.

I’ve been feeling quite blue lately.  The spiral started a few months back, and having been through depression years ago, I wasn’t hoping to struggle with it again.

Avoidance never seems to work out.  Let’s not be afraid to face our emotions and what they may mean, and let’s remember to ask for help when we need it.

This is when friends, family, and doctors come in.

Let’s get the help we need from others and ourselves, move forward, and always remember the positive when we’re feeling blue.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
