If you are struggling this holiday season, with depression, loneliness, grief or anything else that really hurts,
please know that many others feel the same way, and that you will not always feel the way you do today.
If you live in the U.S., please call 800-273-8255 or text 741-741 and talk to a trained listener, if you do not have another option.
If you live elsewhere, please Google “crisis line.”
Giving Voice to Depression has a Facebook page with thousands of people with depression who support each other. We invite you to join us.
Please hold on and know that you DO matter.
This holiday, and this terrible feeling will pass. You Matter!!
(This was recorded years ago, and referenced Christmas, but it is even more true today,
and applies to any holiday and/or the end of this unprecedented year.)
