Dealing With Depression

Dealing With Depression

Depression and anxiety are things that I have dealt with my whole life. I know the physical and mental struggles that can come from it. You are not alone in the struggle against depression and anxiety.

Depression and anxiety is normal in situations involving trauma, death, sickness and other events. It becomes abnormal when you are no longer enjoying things you once
enjoyed, are having thoughts of doubt and hopelessness, are afraid to do things that you normally do, and the list goes on.
I want you all to know that I am here for you and have dealt with these same emotions and continue to. I will be praying for you and I want you to know that I am here for you. I hope you all have a blessed day God bless!

Follow your dreams!

We all have them, want them and even need them. I’m talking about dreams! We have desires and passions in our lives that we want to come into fruition.

Maybe you want to move to a different state away from your family or perhaps you want to become a doctor. Well there are many reasons and passions that drive us to succeed more.

But there could be people and/or things that hinder or get in the way of that.

We have all experienced the kind words of our parents saying well your good at that but you should really go to college and have that be a hobby.

I have experienced that being a musician.

But now as I have practiced, played out and shown my family that music is truly the driving force and passion in my life.

Never let anybody in your life dictate your happiness. We all desires and passions in our life that bring us joy and happiness. But of course you have an unhealthy addiction that you consider your passion you need to take that into consideration
