10 ways to show you care if someone has depression

I came across an article on depression while browsing through my Facebook feed, and it certainly reflects how I feel, my exact sentiments of depression described in words and sentences I have trouble forming. I realise I am still trying to fight depression, and it’s a tiring struggle. I’m fighting against myself. I don’t deny that I have depression. I admit that I am depressed. I don’t feel happy about my life and my self. In fact, I feel useless. To be honest, I don’t like who I am, and I’m struggling to love myself and my body. We live in a society where having a skinny body is ideal. I’m not skinny. I’m fleshy, and I don’t like that. My thighs jiggle when I walk. I weigh 63kg, and my weight is steadily increasing. I exercise to get my mind off things but I stop after ten minutes of jogging. I lack motivation. I want to lose weight but the friends whom I consider as close friends aren’t there to exercise with me.

So when I came across this article (click here), it hit me in the head that I should do something about my life. Something more meaningful. (:

Drop me a message of encouragement if you see this post. Am going through a rough period, and it’s a tough struggle.

Cheers! Have a good evening everyone.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
    some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you
    run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.

      Hey there! If you log-in to your account, under settings – there should be an option for you to add the Twitter widget option. I’m not sure if the wordpress template you’re using supports that but you can try! You can also add the Instagram widget too! (: Hope this helps!

      Do let me know if I can be of further assistance! Am glad you enjoy reading my blog.
