Yesterday I was mentioning to an acquaintance how I wish to reach out and simply help people who have depression, anxiety, chronic illness or even simple low self esteem.
Her response was simple…..’ how can you expect to help other people when you still have bad days and suffer depression ‘?
Simple, inside knowledge!
And just for the record, I don’t ‘suffer’ depression. Yes I carry the depressive gene, but like everything else in life, it’s how you carry the load and learning to adjust.
That is a learning curve I am on and will be on everyday…..I just don’t see why I can’t use my journey of learning to reach out and help others.
