Depression taught me that I didn’t actually want to die. I love this World, all the trees, flowers and animals. But 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 are real. The interconnectedness of life is always there and regardless how alone we may feel at times, we are never truly alone. The system and society 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. If you are in a state of depression, please don’t let it defeat you. Listen to yourself and ask yourself what do you need? What situation are you actually escaping from? Appreciate what you do have, rather than what you don’t have. Simplify life and your basic requirements for living. This world needs you. Find that positivity in yourself and if you need help remember you are never truly alone. Every one of us is connected by an invisible force driving us to become the best version of ourselves. 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. You’ve got this.
