My Journey with Depression and Anxiety

A few days ago, I was trying to walk home in the wind and rain. My umbrella kept on blowing inside out and I kept trying to fix it. I ended up losing one of my bags trying to battle. So finally I put my umbrella down and just gave in and let myself be rained on.

That is what depression and anxiety is like for me. You can try to deny it, put up a mental umbrella and battle against your feelings and emotions, but in the end you have to let them in. You have to let the rain of depression drench you and the wind of anxiety batter you.

Like bad weather, it feels like you'll never make it. It feels like the wind and rain will never stop. It feels like monsoon season. But it can't rain all the time and this too will pass.
