Depression is like being homesick but not knowing where home is.
It’s a longing deep down for something that seems missing but isn’t.
You feel alone in a room full of people.
You’ve even told yourself you have no reason to feel sad. (Maybe others have said the same.)
No matter what you try, it doesn’t seem to go away.
It’s like you’re wading, just keeping your head above water.
Depression is living with a body that wants to live but a mind that wants to die.
It’s not always too bad. Some days almost feel “normal”.
Sooner or later though, the depression comes back.
The times when you’re not depressed you worry when the floor will be pulled out from under you.
Depression doesn’t have to control your life.
It’s time to live your life fully again.
