I’ve shared here before on my struggle with depression. I’m so grateful to be in a better place now, yet I now know that it is something I will forever need to be on guard for. For so long I didn’t recognize that I was in such a dark pit, but looking back it is so obvious.
I go back and forth on sharing about my journey. Sometimes I worry what others might think, or that I’m being melodramatic, or that peopel asr just sick of hearing about my struggles.
Bottom line is, my hope in sharing is to bring freedom to others in the same dark place. Depression is much more common than we realize, and hiding it helps no one.
