💜💙💜 Depression is often times held behind many "happy" faces. It's hidden beneath the "Im okays" and "life couldn't be better" I have found this to be true because I've lived it.
Everyone on this earth and capable of becoming complacent. Working day in and day out, not even realising that we may have a problem ourselves. Depression is not to be handed off as sadness or even intertwined with grief. It's a real thing that needs to be addressed. Whether you take the matter into your own hands & gradually make yourself grow out of it or you get a doctor to help you.
Depression can be fatal. Feeling useless, unwanted, unworthy, no energy, the overwhelming feeling of just trying to hang on for one more minute, one more hour, just one more day hoping for the slightest positive change in our life to show us that it is worth living. I would know because I have been there.
My Father & my brother both showed signs of possibly thinking about suicide. But until it was to late, those signs went unnoticed because we thought they were untouchable. Death is inevitable, but for one to choose when, where, and how they die is something that is widely overlooked daily.
At the early age of 12, after seeing my father who had just put a gun to his head take his last breaths, I will never forget my first encounter with the word suicide. It's devastating, harsh, messy, avoidable, and most of all leaves an imprint on every person involved for a lifetime. ♡ So I challenge you today & everyday to stop and look around. Are the people who surround you daily really alright? You never know when one smile, or a couple words of kindness could save someone from tying that knot, or loading that gun. There is absolutely nothing in this world that I wouldn't do to bring back my father or my brother.
