Not related to my blog whatsoever, but have had a bit of a struggle as of late with this. I suffer from social anxiety on a daily basis and recently went through a very difficult break-up because of it. I wonder if I’ll ever find someone who can love me for me and not expect me to change this aspect of myself? Yeah I can try to be more social but it just doesn’t come easy. I can’t just “get over it”. It’ll always be a part of me.
You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
