My Secret Battle With Depression

I have suffered tremendously in this lifetime with a slew of battles within myself. My battles have ranged from drug and alcohol abuse, an eating disorder, an abusive relationship, experiencing emotional abandonment after the death of my sibling, etc. I have openly shared my experience and lessons learned from each of these situations because I truly believe that I am here to show others that they aren’t alone. However, there is something that I haven’t been transparent about because, for me, it seems to be an issue that I have yet to completely resolve.

Be Happy You Are Sensitive

Out of all of the people in the world, I tend to gravitate towards those that are labeled “sensitive.” Outwardly sensitive people, in my opinion, tend to embrace each and every experience with a compassionate heart and an understanding mind. I feel that most people (yes, you included) are sensitive creatures, but due to previous circumstances have built up walls of protection in order to emotionally survive.
