How often do we, as the commercial says, “wind ourselves up” in the morning? Do we simply show up for our day, going through the motions in a very unmemorable and joyless way? Maybe we have accepted jobs or homes or even relationships because they just happened to be there and now, it’s just easier to stay put.
And haven’t we with depression, given up enough already?
At times, I have certainly settled in many areas of my life. Because of fear, I have taken what’s in front of me rather than trying something new – going for a dream – taking a risk.
We have given up our right to dream – given up my energy, curiosity, creativity.
Depression, we have given you enough.
