DepressionFebruary 23, 2023
There are times when I just need to be alone; other times I don’t know my purpose –
Am I living up to the life I was meant to live?
It is in these times; I crawl under the bed and hide. Maybe no one will see my sadness.
I am grateful for the humans around me that help me find my joy –
usually with my orange squishy ball or a walk outside.
Depression looks different for everyone, what does yours look like?
Whatever it is, be ok with your sadness, but don’t stay there too long.
There are squirrels to chase and UPS drivers to run after!
