Depression comes. Depression goes.

From where to there? I do not knows….

  1. To say this, in itself is courageous and inspirational. And you do it in the most beautiful way I could ever imagine. I bet your crochet is amazing. Depression can be, so …. dark, empty… lonely. Thank you for posting this and I send you love ๐Ÿ’•

      1. Depression is most certainly real, and when you live it you realise just how real. How it can be a central controllung force in your life that you feel powerless against. That effects so much more than just your mood.
        .so happy you have a creative outlet, what are you making at the moment?

      2. Yes, wise words here. So true. At the moment I am working on ending my marriage. I guess much like a crochet projectโ€”visualizing what the finished project will look like (a pretty crocheted shawl?) then getting to work making it happen. Iโ€™m feeling pretty good about it. A new start. No more taking on other peopleโ€™s abuse. Not for anything! Iโ€™m excited and scaredโ€”but feeling contentment. Freeโ€”for the first time to truly love myself. This is a great feeling. As I write about it, Iโ€™m feeling better and better..

      3. That is so huge, in so many ways. I’m glad you are feeling contentment as part of the overall emotional package. It sounds like you are needing this – and the result will be completely worth it – self love – this is what we all need. Keep writing, keep crocheting, keep putting one foot in front of the other. Many many hugs ๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•

      4. Ahhh….yes. I do need this. It is part of the process. Without endings, there can be no beginnings. We both agree that we need this. And whatever happensโ€”we will both be better for it. Thank you my dear sweet thoughtful and beautiful friend. Hugs received and given. ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’ž

  2. I read โ€œI manage the damage!โ€ Iโ€™ve never ever heard that statement…not ever! About depression? Mmmmmhhhmmmmm. I get it, and Iโ€™d never heard about managing damage; not in word; not in context of any kind, but here…makes absolute sense. Thanks for the insight

  4. Hey Nina,

    I just read in the comments youโ€™re ending your marriage. Iโ€™m sending you positive energy! You are so lovely and wonderful, one of the sweetest people I have known, though never met! You have so much light… i hope brighter days come soonโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›. You deserve so much love and light, Lord knows you emit so much live and light. Iโ€™m hear if you ever want to talk to anyone, though Iโ€™m sure you have stacks of friends. Youโ€™re wonderful and I hope his is an exciting chapter for you. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›

    1. Aw sweet Mia. Thank you for the positive energy and love. I totally receive it and feel it!

      Yes, me and my husband of twenty plus years โ€˜endedโ€™ our marriageโ€”as it was the only way we could come to see ourselves as separate from one anotherโ€”which we so needed to do in order to resolve some long standing issues that were between usโ€”that had become unbearable. We were finding it difficult to move forward. It wasnโ€™t something we could fix. We had to change…
      So nowโ€”with faith, compassion, kindness, gratitudeโ€”all of itโ€”we are both learning and growing…growing pains…
      Thank you for being there for me my dear sweet friend I have never met. I feel it.
      This chapter of my story isnโ€™t the brightestโ€”it is a tough one. I am so grateful for itโ€”and I am so grateful for this man who 23 years ago made a commitment to meโ€”and I to him. Loving a survivor of abuse isnโ€™t easy! I will write more about thisโ€”so much easier for me to explain the feeling with poetry. :)โค๏ธ.
      And I am humbled and grateful for all of the kind support Iโ€™ve received from you and so many super cool people here. I sincerely appreciate you ๐Ÿฅฐ

      1. Yeah! No regrets! Thank you for this beautiful songโ€”love Edith! Life is a crazy beautiful strange ride indeed! And I have NO idea whatโ€™s going on. Heehee…but it sure is fun!

        Seems like collectivelyโ€”we are all going through dark daysโ€”as a people perhaps to all learn what we need? Iโ€™m hopeful we will learn….

        It does feel good to write and share this gift! We all have something to share. It took me a long time to accept my own giftโ€”and feel confident enough to share. Now, I just hope others are inspired to see their own giftsโ€”their own beautiful soul. Donโ€™t be afraid. Take heart and courage! And then see what happens…

        Love receiving and giving my dear friend. Always!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’ž


      2. Awe wonderfully said ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜. Strange times indeed, I feel like the days ahead will be very educational, I think a lot of truths about the past will come to light, but only through embracing the truth of reality can we hope to change it for the better ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’—

      3. Yes. I agree with you wholeheartedly. Acceptance.
        Iโ€™ve been thinking about thisโ€”regrets vs. resentment. Iโ€™d rather regret than resent. I do have regrets from my past. I do feel remorse for some thingsโ€”but I also think this is how I have learned to stop those things that cause the regret. NO MORE regrets. So true. ๐Ÿ’ž

      4. Well said! Have you heard the poem Wait by Galway kinnell ? Itโ€™s amazing I think โ˜บ๏ธ. You should read it, I think good times will come for sure. Life comes with risk but at least we tried our best and did it with love ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’—.


      5. Hi Mia! I just looked up this poemโ€”yes! Wow. Elegant and eloquent for sure! Thank you for sharingโ€”and for saying…We did our best with love. ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž

      6. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š *Soldiers of Love*. No matter where it takes me when I die, I want to have lived with love and compassion, endeavouring to spread joy. I feel that there is a joy and quiet honour in living such a life, even if it brings with it sorrow. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’—
