Finding Love For Those Who Suffer From Depression
Yesterday, I wrote a post called “Depression is Real.” I was a little nervous to write it, thinking people would judge me or think there was something wrong with me – like I was wearing a big red “D” on my forehead.
However, the response was just the opposite. I find myself with teary eyes thinking about the wonderful comments left by those visitors to my blog and some who emailed me. In this day, with the economy the way it is and with people struggling with their personal challenges in life, depression is something that is real and affecting many people.
I feel like, in life, I don’t want to cast a perfect image. I have issues that I’ve overcome and am still overcoming. I want to know how to deal with things, such as depression, and it helps me to know that I’m not the only one dealing with it. It’s an awesome thing to lean on one another for strength and support – in good times and bad.
One of the things that helped me through depression was love. I had friends who would call or stop by and visit me. I also had family who would check up on me and let me know they loved me. I felt loved and valuable. Blogging also helped me in more ways than I can list. Knowing that there were other moms out there who were overwhelmed by screaming toddlers, dirty diapers, and more!
I love blogging and am so thankful for the blessings it has brought into my life. A big thanks and hugs go out to my readers and those who leave comments. Even for those who don’t leave comments, I hope that what I write on my blog touches and blesses your life.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
