Depression isn't something one can control. We can feel happiness for a chunk of time and then suddenly be overwhelmed with sadness and despair. We don't ask for it, nor can we predict when it will hit us. It can last for minutes, hours, days, months or years. We pray when it hits it's just for a moment until we can see a glimmer of hope...light...whatever it is that makes people get through the day.
If you are lucky enough not to suffer, then please just try and accept. Just love us. I feel beyond help. I don't want advice. I just want love and acceptance. I judge more than you ever could. Just love me. It's okay.
