My Year To Thrive

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." ~Maya Angelou

“Depression can seem worse than…”

Depression can seem worse than terminal cancer, because most cancer patients feel loved and they have hope and self-esteem.
~David D. Burns (Brainy Quote)

I like this quote & wanted to share it.  Depression is often compared to illnesses like Cancer, but one thing that separates it from those is Depression robs you of the will to get better & even the hope that things can improve.  It’s hard to remain motivated to make any changes when you can’t believe they will make any difference or that you can even be successful.

That is why having a good support system is so vital because you need someone to believe & have hope & be motivated for you.  Someone who can gently nudge you to take  care of yourself, but be there to care for you with love & understanding when you are not even ready to take that step.
