Why you’re a winner


No matter who you are and how “good” your life is on the outside depression can get you. This huge creepy monster is here to stay. It is whispering. It’s telling you to lie down. Why should you get up anyway? It’s telling you to stop trying. You can’t do it anyway. Now it’s screaming. Pain. Pain is the solution. And now you yell back. Or maybe you whisper. No… Still you’re fighting. You get out of bed no matter what it says. You push harder because you can do it. You take a hot bath. You take care of yourself. And every little thing that you do to take care of yourself is a stab to the chest of that ruthless monster. You weaken it enough so that someday you won’t be able to hear its screams…

    It’s a constant battle. One that for some, will never end. Like a shadow that’s always around. But we do what we can. We survive. 🙂

    This post really is amazing! I just wrote a post on my blog called the ‘mental illness tag’, I’m trying to help people understand and have an insight into what it’s like to have a mental illness, would be great if you did it!
