⭐️⭐️[FEATURED BY 'THE VEILED NIGHT']⭐️⭐️
"Don't let the darkness overtake your light."
Depression; feelings of severe despondency and dejection.
That's what the dictionary labels it as, that's what all the therapists and people that don't really know what it's like label it as.
What they don't know, though, is that it's so much more.
Regret, self-loathing, anger, despair, hatred, loneliness, darkness, self harm... All of those things are only the tip of the iceberg to what depression really feels like. It's your darkest hour of need, your prison. It can mercilessly hit you while you're at your weakest, lowest point. It can cripple you until you are nothing more than a sniveling mess, or simply numb to everything. It can lead you down a messy, desperate path of no return, all in the name of trying to feel again, to lessen this agony destroying your heart, soul, and mind.
It can lead you to suicide.
They say there's always a light at the end of the tunnel to guide you home again, one that can happen at the strangest and most unexpected of times. They call it hope. Something that gives you a reason to live and makes you fight against the drowning tide dragging you under black waters; something that makes you reach for that light above the surface as you once used to.
What if, right before you hit rock bottom under those crashing waves, never to surface again, you were shown that light at the end of tunnel, and given a second chance at life?
That...is my story.
