I wanted to open and share my story of fighting depression. My perception is that many people have a very severe idea of what depression looks like and, often, the milder versions are not detected.
That was certainly the case for me; I knew for a long time that something was wrong, but I had no idea how to call it or, more importantly, that I should even call it somehow. My children are only 17 months old, so I honestly thought it was probably only because I was adapting to motherhood and exhaustion and the overwhelming situation.
After doing a lot of intentional internal work, I have gone from feeling like a shell of myself to being absolutely prosperous! I hope that by sharing my story with depression, other people struggling with milder versions have the opportunity to know signs to look for, such as:
• feel lost
• not wanting or feeling the need to leave
• disconnect from friends and family
• be very isolated
• have no social life
• complete lack of interest in the things that you
used to love
• Feel as if you are constantly in the fog.
• loss of sexual desire
• Have feelings of being a failure.
• be insecure
• have no idea what you enjoy in most areas of
These are just some of the symptoms I encountered, but remember that depression is a spectrum. It may seem like many things to many people, so even if you have the least inclination you may have, don't be afraid to ask for help ❤️
