Being here is always going to be a conflict of sorts. We yearn for home, but are bound by earthly pleasures. It’s gonna be confusing a lot of the time. It is for me anyway. Depression can be managed. It can be put in a safe place, enabling a person to go forward with grace and even a lot of joy. It has to be managed though, and that’s the tricky part.
You have to keep that line of communication open with friends and family and professional ‘helpers’. Isolating one’s self is counter productive at some point. Yes, it’s great to be ‘alone’ and have a chance to learn about who you are and what makes you tick, but WE are social beings.
We need each other. We need that connection and that feeling of belonging, even if it’s a few days a week. Don’t give up on yourself. Don’t lose faith.[/su_quote]
