How and why is it a common misconception that people with depression are weak?
Imagine starting your day in a pit.
Imagine battling the darkest of convincing thoughts playing non-stop in your head.
Imagine having to convince yourself there is hope when your own mind is working against you.
We can assure you, while it may look like “giving in” or “laziness” from the outside,
it is a very different experience on the inside.
Depression is NOT a weakness or personal failing.
Treating it as though it is, adds to its power and danger.
