Hey, my fellow lifelong depression battle buddy! 😄
I totally relate to this piece, Luke.
I’ve reached the darkest dark where you feel like there’s NO HOPE. That level of darkness that feels impenetrable. That’s depressions greatest trick. It makes you FEEL like things will never be any better. It’s certainly okay to feel that way, but in reality, nothing lasts forever…good times or bad. If we can just find a way to remember that it can give us a source of strength when we’re in our bleakest moments.
At least that’s what I believe.
