What I Wish People Knew About Depression

My long-standing readers will know how much I admire Therese Borchard’s writing on depression – borne of the years of struggle with this insidious illness. This piece is something which needs to be read by all those who find it hard to understand that depression is not a choice, not something we can just think our way out of. I really like how Therese highlights the contradictory nature of depression – that gratitude and despair can co-exist. Hold on to her words if you are struggling right now ” depression comes and it goes, and in its ebb and flow are found pockets of peace that can sustain a person for the journey.”
