It's A Constant Battle

I have been down and out. I've been depressed lately again. Sometimes it doesn't matter what you do or how hard you try, depression can still grab a hold of you. It has grabbed me and chomped down like a pitbull lately.  One thing I do know though is, I still like who I am. Even though I am depressed, I know I have value. I know I am worth loving and knowing. I am confident in myself and in who I have become. Depression may have taken my happiness for a while, but it will never take my self respect. 

So often people become depressed and they feel worthless. I used to feel that way. I don't anymore. In spite of how dejected I feel and how blue I feel, I can still hold my head high and look myself in the mirror. I can sleep at night knowing I am a good person. I don't claim to be perfect, but I have good intentions. I have made my share of mistakes, but they don't define me. Neither does my depression. 

So I will take my little yellow pill and relax, I will surround myself with love and I will get through this. Depression is temporary. This too shall pass.
