Who stole my sunshine ?
Hello, it has been a while since i blogged. I wondered for a while whether i should do this post or not ? I had thought that maybe i should pretend that life is a dream, but thats not me...why pretend.
So i have depression, like alot of people and some days are good, some moments are amazing and some days its like wading through treacle. Today is a treacle day and am finding it tough.
There are things i "should" be doing but i am not.
It's a day where a list of negatives pile up and i struggle to break free and get to my happy place.
On days like these i hear "pull yourself together" or "go for a walk " Depression it seems can still be socially unacceptable...there are people that just don't accept its real. They see it as a weakness and not a illness.
But i am not weak.
I can also say that other people i know with depression are not weak either.
Sometimes i need Courage to get through the day...yes Courage !...i need to think like a lion and not a mouse, and i need people not to judge too.
I can say that so many times my art and creativity have rescued me. My pen and sketch book like my life raft. So many times drawing has taken me to a different world where i can leave depression far behind, for that i am so grateful.
Here's to more days of sunshine !
I really wanted to share and if you want to comment that would be great, you know i love to hear from you
All my best wishes
