5 things Depression made me Forget

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.

I MATTER

 

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.
