I wanted to take a second to get real with you... about depression. 

 

We all know what it is. We all know what can cause it. We all deal with it in different ways and we all know that it can be overwhelming to go through... especially if you feel you're going through it alone. 

 

You're not alone. 

 

You don't have to go through whatever it is... alone. 

 

Life needs you in it. You're here for a reason, and even if you don't know what that reason is, you're here because you're supposed to be here and you're supposed to do something... contribute something... be a part of something... which makes the world a better place. 

 

Because that's why you're here. 

 

If you think you've got no one to talk with, think again. You've got me. Family. Friends. And if that's not enough, and you can't find someone at church or school... or in whatever organization you're part of... you can always call someone you may not know but who is there for you because you're important to this world and to life.
