The fight against depression

Life is full of many challenges. A challenge I never thought I would have to face was depression. I had heard the word mentioned many times before but I never paid much attention to it. You know that “it won’t happen to me” kinda mentality??? That was me. Ignorant.

Never did I associate depression with myself until I had to face it head-on as a demon that was after my soul.

And of course, I wasn’t gonna give up my soul to that evil dark monster. I was gonna fight it and overcome. No way, was I gonna give in and allow it to ruin my life. Not in its wildest dreams.

Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements and impossibilities: It is this that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak.

Thomas Carlyle
