My Absence – Dealing With Depression

A big part of depression is feeling really lonely, even if you’re in a room full of a million people.

– Lilly Singh


I apologize for my lack of posting. My lack of engagement. My lack of drive. It saddens me that I neglected something I love so much. I was having a harder time than I thought with recent events. I am still fighting the depression that lingers in the distance. I don’t think it ever truly goes away. I suppose you learn to live with it being actively present or a noise in the background.

I have dreams and goals I wish to accomplish and I know I can’t do that if I allow depression to win. So I am working on it. Every single day. Even as I write something as short and simple as this point, I am fighting the urge to just cry myself to sleep. This isn’t an easy journey and I never expected it to be, but I am on it. I am trying. So please hang in there and I get myself back on track.

Depression, for me, has been a couple of different things – but the first time I felt it, I felt helpless, hopeless, and things I had never felt before. I lost myself and my will to live.
