The thing about genetic, chemically induced depression, is it never really leaves. Today was a huge reminder that my daily routines: prayer, meditation, reading about the human mind and how it processes emotions--these routines help me get through days like today. Nothing in particular occurred. At least nothing negative. I experienced a bit of stress with finances, but handled that quickly. If you were around me today, you probably wouldn't have noticed.
Out of nowhere it can arrive. Thanks be to God I was prepared today. I only wish others who suffer the same mental anguish is as well equipped--or surrounded by a great group of friends and family.
Reach out to someone tonight...whether you're the depressed or the one who happens to see what others cannot.
