And that is the cold hard truth! You know... the thing about depression is that it really messes up your perspective on life. It will make you feel as though nothing is worth living for, as though even the best things in life are futile and/or completely out of your reach. While enduring a depressive state, you'll find it hard to cope with troubles, or motivate yourself to advance in your career, or to simply get out of bed in the morning... because nothing is worth it. But you want to know a secret?
Nothing is really worth it unless you make it count... that's regardless of whether you're depressed or fully happy and adjusted. Life has many challenges and difficulties waiting around every corner, and your spirit will be twisted and trampled every step along the way. But here's the good news: when you manage to keep your depression under control, you'll be able to embrace difficulties rather than fearing them! You'll get stronger with every adversity you vanquish, and you'll learn to take the good with the bad.
Overcoming depression has nothing with embracing a fluffy-happy version of reality. It's all about accepting the world for what it is, full of duality and contrast, sound and fury. Without depression holding you back, you'll learn to see life for what it is: a perfect roller-coaster.
