Yesterday was a hard day for me, but thanks be to God 4 days. During the last year and a half I have suffered in silence from depression. Only a few of my closest friends and family knew. Why am I sharing this with all of u? Well, b/c all-in-ig is not always pretty and we can't add a filter to life! I've had moments where all I saw was darkness and all I felt was sadness. You'd be surprised how many people do you know have been in the past, or still struggle against depression. The ONLY thing that helps me is MY LORD AND SAVIOR, jesus CHRIST! He knows exactly who to send and when to send them. To my parents, brother, family and friends. There is nothing to be ashamed of! This life can take a toll on you, and sometimes feels unbearable. You walk around with a smile on his face, but deep inside you are drowning. Trust me I know what it feels like. But I'm hear to tell u, God is in the water, I'm not going to let u drown. I love each & every one of you! We are all connected in 1 way or another. We are human, and we can go through shii but we don't have to do it alone. Be the spark that lights the world✨ Sincerely, the Girl Interrupted Ps. Thx 2 my friend 4 the appointment🙏🏾
