[Depression is real] Just recently it was announced that the co-founder of Miss Jessie curls committed suicide.
I don’t know why? I don’t know her full story but I can almost say depression was close in there for her to decide to kill herself.
Depression doesn’t discriminate and everyone is a target for it. It’s important that you know YOU. That you set boundaries. That you love self enough to know when things are out of whack and is ok with saying “Hold the hell up I’m not ok.”
There are too many of us dying and we have “people” around us who are suppose to care. There are too many of us dying and we have spouses that should be in tune with us. There are too many of us dying all alone!
But you are not alone! [pullquote]Having suicidal thoughts? Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 8002738255[/pullquote]A spouse can feel lonely for many reasons. Some are past inflicted, some are self inflicted and many are spouse inflicted. Unresolved past hurts, sadness, and mistrust can make a spouse feel depressed regardless of all the love and attention the other spouse gives.
When your heart has a broken piece, nothing can fix it until you are ready to be healed. That is why holding on to things YOU cannot change, apologies you may not get, a job/career lost or even a mommy/daddy issue is not good for your health (mentally or physically).
This is not something I’ve read. This is something I’ve lived. I’m sharing it with you today because God told me to (because I can’t believe I’m writing this) but once I realized that I’m the most important asset in my life, the slippery slope of depression was no more!
The other thing to remember: If the “people” in your circle are not willing to accept that you are human and can breakdown at times, I tell you to get new “people.” Don’t suffer and allow Satan to tell you, you are not worthy of living.
Men. Ladies. Husbands. Wives. Fathers. Mothers. Brothers. Sisters. You are important. Your life does matter. Don’t suffer in silence and don’t allow your spouse to suffer or die from this illness!
