–this is not a quote–
see it as a hand, a hug, two ears and a heart reaching out for help.
there has been a lot of talk going around about depression and how people should "let it out" but when they do, we ridicule them and casually tell them to "get their shit together."
it's not easy to spill
it's not easy being a listener too, without bias.
there is depression which often goes unnoticed and then there is depression that's rubbed on your face because you chose to listen. there are people who use depression as an excuse for anything, there are people who are actually struggling but they never tell. our motive should be to cure both, former with reason and the latter with love and care.
i volunteer to be a listener, for anyone who needs to throw things off his/her chest. feel free to drop an email right up on my bio.
(a little trick, talking to strangers is easier than you may think. you have nothing to lose)
