Sometimes we can feel the darkness closing in. We can feel our wheels spin deeper into the mud.
Bruce Springsteen employs the lyrics:
“I’ve been down, but never this down.
I’ve been lost, but never this lost.
I’ve had my faith shaken, but never hopeless.
I’ve always been strong, but I’ve never felt so weak.
I’ve been without love, but never forsaken.”
- “This Depression” from the album Wrecking Ball (2012)
You are not alone.
You are not alone in feeling this way; nor are you alone in having to deal with your plight. Some folks feel that no hope exists.
Here’s a breath of good news: you are NOT one of those people.
If you felt to your core that there was no hope, why would you be on this website reading these very words? Why would you be searching the internet with words like “depression” or “counseling”?
