If I could…

If I could speak to every person who has or is struggling with depression, I would say this…
It’s okay to struggle, it’s okay to be upset, but it’s not okay to keep it to yourself and isolate yourself. There is a God who loves you and cares for you. This God will never forsake you. He will never walk away from you. He will make your paths straight, you just have to surrender. God gave His son to die for our sins. Sins that we struggle with because we have used them as a coping mechanism, even if we don’t even realize it. And let me tell you, it’s hard to let go of those sins. But it’s not impossible. God has your back and will be with you every step of the way.
Lift your head up and open your eyes look at the people around you. He has placed certain people in your life so you don’t walk through this alone.  
I’ve lived with depression since I was around 10. There are days that are way harder than some. What I’ve realized is the more I isolate, the more those days seem to multiply. The more I dwell in the past, the more the days multiply. But the more I trust in God, the more I pray, the more I spend time with others in the faith in community, the less the days happen.
God loves you and cares deeply for you because you are a child of God. 
And if I can help anyone with anything by using my testimony and allowing others to realize they are not alone both spiritually and physically than whatever I went through was worth it.
