struggling with depression is hard work. Throw in other obstacles that living a life and being a parent gives you and sometimes it gets very dark and lonely. I have many ways of achieving success everyday, but there are days when I almost do not. That’s the harsh reality of depression. Some of us don’t make it.
To remind myself that I have to keep doing the hard work, always keep fighting, and never give up I made myself a mandala in Wink’s memory. Sadness is innermost, but I must let the light in, for it warms me, surround myself with love and allow some sadness to just be. It’s okay to be sad, and it’s okay to be happy.
