I have depression but depression doesn't have me.
Everyone has a different purpose and ultimate meaning in life. At least that's what I like to believe. Sometimes I struggle but I try to keep positive no matter what. Yes, it can be difficult at times. I struggle with depression and have struggled with it for over 10 years. I was first dianogsed with clinical depression when I was just 13 years old.
I've heard the argument that you really can't tell someone with depression to just "snap out of it" but in recent years I've chosen to not believe that. For me personally submitting to depression and saying it's "okay" to feel this way because I have depression is not an option for me anymore. I don't want to get all "preachy" on you and say that you're weak 9by no means do I think that people with depression are weak) but for me personally I've decided to not let depression run my life anymore. I have depression but depression doesn't have me.
