Hey my Lovelies,
I recently posted a blog called, Depression & Drawing touching on what I feel whilst suffering depression and how I have used my creativity to keep me going through this mental illness especially through the winter time. In this post i’m going to share 5 postive things that depression has caused me to forget about myself and it’s possibly some things you or a loved one has struggled with due to an ongoing battle with depression.
Feeling worthless can come as a result of suffering depression & feeling like you don’t matter. Depression is a very isolating place that makes you feel worthless & unimportant.
It’s not true. I MATTER.
I AM A STAR
I may not be on Billboards Hot 100 (do they still do that, haha) but I AM A STAR
Depression causes a thick black cloud that drowns out all the light and any sense of HOPE. I have to remind myself often that The Brightest Stars Shine On The Darkest Nights 🌟
I AM WORTHY OF LOVE
Loving myself. Love from others & most of all Love from my Heavenly Father.
I Am Worthy Of Love & Every Good Thing!
I AM BEAUTIFUL IN ALL MY BEING
Chronic illness & mental health disorders lead you to believe that you can’t possibly be beautiful. When Depression hits the hardest your self-esteem becomes 10 times more fragile.
The beauty I feel lacking isn’t necessarily a physical beauty but constant battles with depression can cause me to feel ‘mentally ugly’.
I have to remind myself that the beauty I see in nature & in everyone else is the all encompassing beauty that I posses, but in my own way.
I AM IRREPLACEABLE
INTRUSIVE THOUGHTS. NOT FEELING LIKE I BELONG. FEELING LIKE MY TIME HERE ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH OR THAT I’M USELESS…
No One is ME & I AM IRREPLACEABLE.
Thank you for reading.
