What I like about My Depression

One ceases to recognize the significance of mountain peaks if they are not viewed occasionally from the deepest valleys.
Dr. Al Lorin
In moments of discouragement, defeat, or even despair, there are always certain things to cling to. Little things usually: remembered laughter, the face of a sleeping child, a tree in the wind—in fact, any reminder of something deeply felt or dearly loved. No man is so poor as not to have many of these small candles. When they are lighted, darkness goes away—and a touch of wonder remains.

There is nothing in the world so much admired as a man who knows how to bear unhappiness with courage.
– Seneca
Much of my Depression, Stress and Disappointment in Life often stems from the Actions, Words and Beliefs of some of my Extended Family Members, but regardless, at the End of the Day, When All Is Said and Done, I still Love Them All Deeply.

We are Many but we are also joined as One through our Shared Common Ancestral Connection and Blood.

“The weight of the world is love.
Under the burden of solitude,
under the burden of dissatisfaction
the weight,the weight we carry is love. ”
— Allen Ginsberg
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” – George Bernard Shaw
Break Free The Chain From The Rock of Depression
If we admit our depression openly and freely
Those around us get from it An experience of Freedom
Rather than the depression itself

  1. Hmm…very interesting, and true. I’ve thought about this before, I believe. But when I’m depressed sometimes, and I experience something like one of the examples you used (i.e. remembered laughter), I’ll burst into tears. The funny thing is, I’ll end up feeling better soon after.

  2. I often feel that way to – after I had done these photos about my depression for some unknown reason I became more depressed than better – go figure hey
