it lies. It will tell you that you are worthless, that you are a burden, you don't deserve to be happy, and sometimes that you would be better off dead. But depression lies, it preys on our fears, it whispers to us, and it is so very hard to ignore. But you do have worth, look in the eyes of your child, because in the eyes of that child you are the most worthwhile person on this planet. You are loved, you are needed. You have a value that is measured in hugs, kisses, and the word "mom". You have value to your partner, who would not be the same person without you. You may feel like you are wandering through a wasteland all alone, but I promise you there are people setting up an oasis just for you. And they want you to go to them, they want to hold you, they want you to be able to look in the mirror and see how much you are really, truly worth. Don't be afraid to reach out to the hands that are so desperate to grab yours.
For there to be shadow, there must first be light.
Small Edit- Please feel free to use this post to connect with others. Especially if you are feeling like this and you need that hand to reach out for you.
Another edit- If you think you have no one then you have me. I will not disclose anyone's screen names who contacts me and will gladly offer what help I can.
