entry #10

dear depression diary,

I came across this post that I wrote on my Tumblr on July 23 2020 that I want to share with you.

“mental illnesses don’t make you any less of a person. I personally suffer from depression; that increases tenfold when I’m left alone. I say it often but I don’t think people really hear me when I say — my kids save my life everyday. If you’re like me, or suffer from other hardships in your life — I am here. Message me, talk to me, vent to me, cry on my virtual shoulder. No one should have to go through a single step of life alone. I am here for you. Speak out.

here you are loved.”

I want anyone who reads this to know I meant and still mean every word of this. I’ve lost family and friends to suicide because they felt they had to fight their battles alone. I have had suicidal thoughts and tendencies myself in the past during the moments I felt like I had no one to turn to, that no one would understand what I am going through. I am so thankful for the people that opened up to me and gave me the courage to talk about my traumas and mental issues.

If I can be that person for just one of you, then I’ve done something right.

lesson of the day: be courageous, even in your weakest moments — that is the real strength.

I have had a million and one stories to tell, but was quieted by my fear. Time to break my silence.

  1. What an awesome testimony. Yes, talking with others helps to make one feel important and needed. I’ve been in the bitter pits of depression before. I’m here for you if you ever need someone to vent or talk to. God bless you.
