The Art of Dying Slowly But Surely

People think depression is a choice

Think again, think!

Waking up with no emotional strength to face people

Existing but not living, time just passing by with no reason

Feeling so alone even when surrounded by people

Hiding your true feelings because your mind convinces you that nobody cares.

Losing friends because you can’t physically force a “happy”

Living only for acceptance and never choosing yourself

Cowering in constant fear of being hurt or judged by others

Having high expectations for self; defiance and other challenging behaviors.

Nobody would wish that upon themselves!

Depression is not a choice.

Depression is an illness.

Help others find relief from depression
