I have to keep reminding my self of this. Anyone else have this trouble?
It is easy to blame everyone and everything around. It is harder to stand up and say “enough is enough” and take steps to resolve the problem. I tend to take the easy way out. I have to move in circles that are positive and vibrant. The only way that I can think of is to move into the sunlight and out of the shadows.
Depression is time-consuming and soul killing. The best description of depression I can come up with is the quicksand in all of the Tarzan movies I used to watch. The harder you pull the tighter the grip. If you quit struggling it will pull you under and drown you. The only way out is a life line, either it is thrown or you grasp a vine or branch that you couldn’t see in your desperation.
In reality quicksand only poses a danger if there is a man eating tiger in the vicinity, it is relativity easy to escape. So is depression, if one has the ability to relax and look for ways to get out. When the dark curtain of depression falls, it is hard to find the light switch.
