There is a song by Bruce Cockburn and one of the lines says you "have to kick at the darkness until it bleeds daylight." That is how I feel about my struggle with depression. I used to slip into the darkness and I wouldn't fight it. That ultimately resulted in me going to places of depresssion that I never should have. I sat down at rock bottom and I said if there is anything, even a little thing I can change, I will no longer let this wash over my life and suck me under. There are things that I think sometimes that no one cares about me, I am worthless, that kind of thing. That kind of thinking I can change. I don't have to believe it! I don't have to take the easy way out. SO when that kind of thinking starts to cloud my mind, I try to really focus on thinking more affirming self loving kind of internal language. Me and you have to fight everday but that is just the way it is. "Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight"......So I keep kicking a the darkness and I hope I never stop....Because the alternative nobody wins...
