I know I recently mentioned that I have dealt with clinical depression for most of my life. Since it is something I “struggle” with, I haven’t talked much about it, but as I am learning I don’t have to have arrived at some destination to tell my story.
Resonance is important and I get emails all the time from women thanking me for telling my story, for helping them feel less alone, for putting to words exactly how they are feeling. I often get “how did you get in my head?’ from various readers.
Depression is hard, so so so hard. It colors the way you view the world, yourself. It is a well worn pathway of hopelessness and despair.
