Sometimes it’s so hard…

…to remember to bring your own sunshine and be happy!

I’m recovering from a (chronic) depression. Last year I was in intensive group therapy for 10 months and I am proud to say that I’ve beaten this awful disease. Since this week I have been working fulltime again and most of the time I feel really great! However, sometimes it just hits me, often early in the morning, a very sad and depressed feeling. And it makes me doubt, is it just because I’m tired from being back to work, is it just a bad day like everyone has…or is my depression back again.

Yesterday was such a day. And I can tell you it was very freighting. However, today I managed to find my own sunshine again. I cleaned my house, made an amazing baby shower gift for a friend of mine. I am simply enjoying life again. Still proud to say, I have beaten this disease and yesterday was just an off day.

So to everyone who struggles sometimes: things will get better!
And remember you can always find your own sunshine!

  1. This is a very beautiful, frank, touching article, and it’s very true as well. Thank you for sharing your battle with depression. I think that people need to hear stories like this to know they’re not alone…
