Ok, so I know the title sounds a bit grandiose! But, I’m done worrying about what people think, about being judged and even about failing. I have to do what’s in my heart. If it doesn’t turn out how I want, I’m OK with that now.
What’s changed? Many things over the past few years. But the final push was a conversation I had with a new friend last weekend. She’s a beautiful, intelligent, insightful young woman who has a beautiful gentle presence. As we were talking, she told me that she struggles with depression here and there. I would have never known. As we talked and shared, it made me, again, realize that I’m not the only one.
I’ve also been reading so many messages from people in various Facebook groups (motivational groups), asking for advice on how to succeed in certain areas of life when they struggle with depression or anxiety. There are too many people in our lives and in this world that feel the same.
I’m not going to hide anymore. I need to write and share and create a tribe for people. A tribe that supports each other, helps each other, offers advice to each other. A place where we can band together.
I don’t have all the answers; but I have experience. I have compassion; and a deep desire to make a difference in this world. To make a difference in the world of depression. I hope you join me in this journey.
