Hello stardust Welcome back to Radical Raspberry. In this video I share my story of depression.
A preface, I have not been diagnosed with depression or I have never been diagnosed, but when you feel this way and you hurt yourself, it is evident that you are not well. This was about 4 years ago. Even though it was a long time ago, it is still part of me and it was a great motivation behind this channel.
As I have already reached 1000 subscribers (thank you, thank you, thank you), I wanted to be really personal with you. This is not a light issue, unlike my funny videos about health and meditation. But you have to say it. I have always hesitated to say the word depression for fear that people will say that I'm just looking for attention. It is not right not to share my story when others are suffering like me.
My depression opened my eyes to the reality that: YOU DO NOT HAVE IDEA WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO ANYONE. It inspired me to be incredibly kind to people. To help them. And that's why I make videos.
I do not know exactly how I came out of it. I know it started with sharing the heaviness of depression with someone. Once I read that the more you talk about something, the less power it has over you. Occasionally I find myself getting into my old depressive habits. Fortunately, that has not happened in months. Depression is something that stays with you. But it does not have to define or limit you. Use it as your fire to improve yourself, to love others and yourself.
Thank you very much for watching and listening with an open mind and heart.
Your support means the world to me.
It really does.
Thank you thank you thank you.
And as always,
ThinkBeyond and OM.
