I go through it, maybe you do as well…..
The best advice I could give anyone with clinical depression, or any sort of darkness/illness they might feel. Is to take that and find something that you enjoy doing and do something with it. CREATE SOMETHING OUT OF THIN AIR!!!!! You may never be proud of it, you may never feel complete after doing it. But you’ve gotta take that darkness and apply it, because there’s a lot of potential in those dreary times.
A lot of that energy could be spent exhausting yourself in something you can work on that’s yours. And I’m not talking about your job, or anything like that. I’m talking about something that belongs to you, something that you can mash together and beat it into submission and say. I took this totally and mostly out of control construct, and did something great with it. If you don’t, I promise you it will consume you. I’m sorry you are going through it, but there’s an artist in every bit of pain. I’m telling you, it helps more than you can understand!!! I believe in you, even if you don’t.
You have to make it, you have to do something…the beast within you will turn on you, or you will tame it. Now, what are you going to do with that? We all have something to offer the world, we all have something to build on. So take that canvas of what if’s or maybe’s or I cant’s and apply it to something meaningful. You may surprise yourself, you may do something you never thought possible. And well, isn’t that the point? =)
