My mental stability has been up and down my entire life. And a big problem I have encountered is trapped feeling…the feeling that the current situation you are in will never end. It is the nature of our sickness. A road block that does not allow you to look around the corner to a different reality than where you are. It always feels like THIS RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE is the ONLY reality that will ever be.
But it is not. In my many years of struggle I have found one of the most reassuring thoughts…it has become my mantra. During trying times I repeat to myself, “This will end.” Three simple words: This. Will. End.It will pass.
There IS a future. There IS a new beginning. The pain, the suffering, the distraught feelings of hopelessness…it will end. It will pass. Look to the future. Know that you will be ok.
And you can look back on what you overcame and say take THAT depression!
