Depression taught me that I didn’t actually want to die, but I wanted to kill something inside of me. I love this World, all the trees, flowers and animals. I wanted to escape the system and the situation I was trapped in. The only way I could was changing my mind frame and the way I see this World. Now I live for all the animals, trees, oceans, skies, because this world is more beautiful and important than anything and it needs people to care. We just need to learn to connect to something that is real and natural. Our relationship with this World, nature and the universe is real. The interconnectedness of life is always there and regardless how alone we may feel at times, we are never truly alone. The illusion and conditioning we live in is false and that’s what your mind is escaping from. Our minds, body, emotions and spirit know the raw nature of ourselves and it’s trying to teach us the unconditional.
If you are in a state of depression, please don’t let it defeat you. Give yourself a break and allow love to guide you. Find that spark within yourself and if you need help remember you are never truly alone. Every one of us is connected and there’s a light always guiding you. Sometimes it just takes a deep breath and courage to take a step forward and eventually you’ll learn how to run again. Connect to something real. This world won’t give up on us so please don’t give up on yourself. Ask the light to help and it will teach you. You’ve got this.
