Cling to people in the darkness and they will guide you to the light
Friends, family, work colleagues… people in general.
They will all help you though your depression, especially if you let them know that you are suffering.
Chances are they have suffered in the same way.
Make your strongest effort to stay in touch with your people They are like your life raft keeping you afloat.
Cling to them!
When going through the deepest of depressive episodes a friend of mine would come over with beer and scotch.
We would chug the booze down and get into some XBOX gaming.
Once the alcohol kicked in we would be laughing and having a great old time and for a while the depression would fade into insignificance.
Sure the depression would come back quickly but those moments of reprieve were both restorative and hope giving.
