Believe in yourself and all that you are.
Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.
I wanted to take a moment to thank every single one of you who commented or sent me a message after this post. I responded to very few of you, I'm sorry. I didn't feel able to at the time. It's not been sitting very well with me that I haven't properly and gratefully acknowledged the time you took to contact me.
I will continue to talk very candidly about depression. It is something I am not ashamed of or am willing to hide. I am extremely passionate about doing my own tiny bit for bringing the subject out into the open. It's far too important and affects far too many people for it not to be addressed.
You are so very precious.
Never let anyone or anything make you think otherwise.
