11. Friends Who Love
Depression, by its very nature, is an isolating experience. When it has a hold of me in full throttle, I feel as though I’m standing behind a piece of glass, thick and clouded. I can see people, but they’re shadows, and after a while I begin to wonder if I’m a shadow too. The end result is a fear that grips my heart because I can’t read people. I can’t separate my depressive thoughts from reality and I leave every interaction half-convinced that the other person was humoring me and couldn’t wait for me to be gone. For a very long time I didn’t reach out, afraid that if I dared, I’d find out that the lies inside my head were really the truth.
Have you ever experienced depression? It is an awful insidious monster that can consume you and control your every thought and your very life. Having suffered this myself, I understand it very well. This is an interesting article on the subject of depression. Written by Shannon over at Painting in Words, this is insightful and well written. Shannon actually has a whole series of articles on depression and it’s effects, but also the blessings received from it. Yes you read that right, blessings from depression.
