Yesterday was a hard day for me but thank God 4 new days. Over the last year and a half I’ve quietly suffered from depression. Only a few of my closest friends & family knew. Why am I sharing this with all of u? Well, b/c everything on ig ain’t always pretty & we can’t add a filter to life! I’ve had moments where all I saw was darkness & all I felt was sadness. You’d be surprised at how many people u know have gone through or still battle depression. The ONLY thing that helps me get through is MY LORD & SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST! He knows exactly who to send & when to send them. My parents, brother, some family & friends. It’s nothing to be embarrassed about! This life can take a toll on you, & sometimes it feels unbearable. You walk around with a smile on your face but deep down inside you are drowning. Trust me I know the feeling. But I’m hear to tell u, God is in the water, he won’t let u drown. I love each & every one of you! We’re all connected in 1 way or another. We’re human & we go thru shii but we don’t have to do it alone. Be the spark that lights the world✨
