In our society, it seems that more people live with depression than ever before. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 350 million people globally suffer from this horribly debilitating mental illness.

However, just because you or someone you know suffers from depression, does not mean you have to go through it alone or feel misunderstood. Almost everyone goes through depression in some part of their life, even if they don’t have it chronically. No matter how long you’ve been dealing with the illness or how badly you suffer from it, please keep reading for a little inspiration to get you through the day.


This is for every person who has ever been depressed…

Depression hurts – it can feel like the darkest abyss, like a storm that never ends, or a jail cell inside your own mind. Unfortunately, many people who don’t suffer from it can’t understand the feelings of those who have to live with it every single day. Many only understand the illnesses and suffering they see right before their eyes, but depression doesn’t like to cause a big scene. In fact, it hides behind-the-scenes, only appearing behind closed doors when no one else can see how much damage it has done.

If you suffer from depression, it can seem like the days are long and the nights are even longer. You want to escape your mind, but have no idea how. You want someone to hear you, to understand how you feel, but even you don’t have the words to express it sometimes. You want to run away, but don’t know where to turn. You want many things, but most importantly, for the sinking feeling in your chest to dissipate somehow.

If you currently suffer or have suffered from depression in the past, please don’t give up. Someone out there will hear your pain and understand your sadness, and can help you get back on your feet again. Just don’t turn out the lights, because then, you won’t ever give yourself that chance to recover. You CAN start to feel better again, with time, commitment, and dedication. Nothing in life comes easily, but the first step to feeling better is to admit that you need help. We weren’t meant to walk through this life alone, so don’t feel that you have to.

Depression can make you feel like you never want to climb out of bed again, like you just want to sink into the sheets and pretend like the world outside doesn’t exist. If you feel like some days you don’t want to get up, just remember that you don’t have to. You don’t have to fight your feelings every single day – remember to give yourself a break sometimes. You’re only human, and you deserve to get honest with your feelings and honor your inner voice. This world has unrealistic expectations oftentimes, and no one can live up to perfection. If you want to spend all day in your bed and not pay any attention to the outside world sometimes, then do it. Do whatever you need to recharge, and don’t feel remorse about it.

    MAN CANNOT
    PRONOUNCE IT
    THEIR PERCEPTION
    NOT SATISFIED
    WITH PERCEIVING
    NOR THE EAR

    IS THAT SUCH AS SHALL BE
    AND THAT OF CREATION
    MEN HAVE SEARCHED OUT
    LEAN UP
    ON HIS OWN
    MISUNDERSTANDINGS

    KINGDOMS

    FOR NOUGHT
    MEN TAKEN CAPTIVE
    MADE TO SERVE
    IN BONDAGE
    AND RIGOROUS LIVING
    MADE FOR A MOCKERY

    AND THE LAND
    GIVETH FOOD FREELY
    AND GENEROUSLY
