A new kind of hope for fractured relationships

Follow up to “When depression can no longer be your excuse.”

Depression is a hard subject to discuss. Depending on one’s mood when one reads anything, what is written can feel hurtful. That is never my intention.

But at the same time, the truth cannot be ignored. Depression IS treatable. It can be overcome.
It doesn’t matter how we got into the pit, we can get out. But that almost always means we face some truths about ourselves. That’s true with almost any endeavor I can think of.

I don’t post anything about depression unless I’m sure I’m in agreement with what the “professionals” say. At the same time, my own experience and those of countless others suggest that there are individual components that are always present, meaning people have unique ways of getting better that worked for them and could help others. This is called anecdotal evidence and it has a legitimate place in the discussion.

No one needs to feel guilty they are depressed. No one would choose depression. It doesn’t matter how we got into the pit. It only matters we get out.
