This has been a hot topic lately and it can affect just about anyone. Depression can really put up a fight with you that it can consume your life. Due to various reasons like broken relationship with family, friends, colleague or significant other, stressful work, bullying, pressuring thoughts of other people towards you and just plain low self-esteem – depression arises. Its very easy to have yourself be eaten by depression but its so hard to get out from it. Its going to be your comfort zone that you always ran back to. The worst part is depression can lead you to a lot of negative thoughts even killing your own self.
I just feel sad whenever I read articles and news about it, especially if its someone I know. Its like help was never given to them or even if there was help, they still choose to go to the dark path.
I know the world is a cruel place to live but there is always hope. I have been to a lot of depression phase in my life but I never thought of ending my own life. I have to admit that I sometimes let it consume me but I just cry until I let it all out. I sometimes withdraw from people and listen to sad songs or watch sad movies, but that’s all to it. And during those times that I’m in my depression phase, I always think of my mom. Though when I think of her at first, I just cry more but after a while I’m okay.
There will always be someone to help you and there is always that one or more reasons to live on. As one of my favorite motto goes, “God gifted us this life because He knows we can take care of it.”
Ending your own life is not that answer to depression or whatever hardships you’re going through. Those struggles were not given to you not because you can’t do it, but because YOU CAN. Always seek help. Keep those people who knows you best and who you’re comfortable with close because they will always be the one to help you. Always find a reason to go on with life and seek God. He will always guide you every step of the way.
