I walked out the door this morning, sheilding my eyes from the unfamiliar sun. It’s been a while since I’ve seen this bright, beautiful object in the sky.
As I glanced down to take a step, I noticed little green promises of Spring pushing their way out of the dirt below.
I can’t wait to see this:
The tulips think Spring is on it’s way and I am happy to believe that right along with them.
Spring brings warmth, beauty and refreshment to a life that has been in a cold, dark, dormant state for the past few months.
I always feel so much better once Spring arrives and I can be released from my long days of staying indoors with the kiddos.
Spring brings relief to those who suffer from Seasonal Depression. I, myself, have experienced days of being down during the long winter months, but nothing too severe or lasting.
I wish the promise of Spring would bring happiness to those who suffer long term or severe depression. I’ve been there as well. It’s been 10 years, but I still remember how depression affects the mind and body and how it takes over every aspect of your life.
There are some who are close to me who are suffering in silent depression every day.
I don’t know how to help them.
Those who love them most all see it, but how do you help someone who doesn’t want to help themself?
I want to be involved.
I want them to feel better.
I feel powerless.
I want the arrival of spring, the chance to be outside, to be a refreshing, happy time to them as it used to be.
Do you or a loved one suffer from seasonal or long term depression?
