My Depression Taught Me To Love Life

Constantly living in depression is the same as living in a dark hole where all the light in your life vanishes as fast as it comes, and even the things that once cherished you, can’t help you to remember what it feels like to be happy and cheerful.

 
You constantly feel the urge to cry when you think about your loved ones since you assume and over-think that your existence is putting them through misery. You try to hide your feelings because you most likely don’t prefer to hurt them, however you can’t help it.

It’s a sickness that you can’t battle all alone but you do, anyway.

Depression drowns you down underwater and suffocates your thoughts, your existence; it makes you question yourself that why is life worth living.

I’ve been through it, miserably. I’ve dismissed life’s significance yet discovered it once more. I put in two years alone, helplessly, never relying or trusting on anyone who told me this phase would end soon or life would get better.

I’m here to reveal my biggest secret to you that it’s a cliche for a reason and that when things improve, you will have the greatest capacity to love your life and the people in it with more force and liveliness than you knew ever existed.

 
The road of recovery from depression takes quite a while (sometimes, a long time), and it’s a slow procedure but once it is over or even once when you start to feel a little better, you’ll begin to appreciate little things in life more, and in the end, that will rebuilt thankfulness forever.

 
Sharing my experience, this is to state that even the darkest circumstances can lead to better circumstances in future.

When the blanket of darkness is lifted, it reveals and uncovers the beauty that you never knew was there, it uncovers the excellence that, I, personally, never knew existed.

People, places, sentiments; they’re all the pieces of what makes life an incredible and perfect experience.

When depression took away my ability and capability to appreciate thing, it showed me all I had taken for granted.
Happiness isn’t something that everybody can have. I was sufficiently fortunate to be given another opportunity. Consider yourself lucky if you’ve the ability to be happy, don’t misuse it, grasp it and embrace it.

Try not to hesitate to accept open doors or love with the majority of your heart. The delight that life will give back is astonishing than you can imagine.

  1. Thank you Saniya for writing this wonderful piece. We, at times, owing to the pressure we self enforce, overlook the goodness of life and everything it offers us to be cherished. Be it because of depression, work, business or busy schedule that we miss out the richness relations, surroundings and blessings available to us. No doubt humans are always unsatisfied and don’t value the blessings they have in their lives. Thank you making us realize that stress that life has to offer can always remain secondary, while we must always prefer enjoying the valuables that we possess owing to the blessings of Almighty Allah! You’re awesome!
