Winter comes twice.Overcoming depression

HOPePicture tell thousands words. Since summer I have been struggling with the depression. For many months I have been trying to hide it, pretend that I am fine. But I’m not.

I found the way out from this situation. I decided to face all the fears. This is how I felt. Cold.  So, this drawing really helped me to move on. I made this picture look unpleasant, dark, lifeless….even happy stickers doesn’t look happy anymore…even wings are fallen.

Even if you feel pain, it means you are still alive. If you are still alive, good moments will come. Sooner or later. They will. It takes time and patience.

Nothing can last forever. The good thing is that bad moments pass away, bad feelings fade out, things seems to fade away.Most important thing is to stay strong (even if it’s hard like hell).

So, this picture helped me to heal. Based on this experience, I suggest everyone to draw or write everything you feel.Face it, feel it and let it go. Now I feel fresh and full of life !  Now, its time for traveling, adventures, new people and cultures.

      • Keep thinking positive.
        I have not experienced this kind of depression but I have had emotional upsets (my husband died unexpected many years ago) and the last thing I wanted to do was sketch but I forced my self to do it and it still surprises me how much it helped and how good I felt after.
        Hugs to you for continued success.

      • I tried positive thinking before and life brought me some unexpected things that I didnt even think of. So, its time to come back with this kind of thinking. Expressing our emotions on paper or digitally is a good way to heal. I wish I could try it before. I am very sorry for your loss. When I lose a relative, I couldn’t do anything except lying on my bed staring at the wall all day long… Looking back at my sketchbook now I can see that from drawings everything black and brown my sketches picks up new colours.

  1. It is great you are using art to help with your situation. “Nothing can last forever” this is so true. In hindsight it always amazes me how much can change in such a short amount of time. When you are down in it, it seems that your situation will never change, things will never get better. It always helps me to be grateful, to start with one thing no matter how trivial and build from it. This life, you can look out the window and be amazed if you let yourself. For example … these people responding to your post, most can relate to what you are going through. They want you too feel better even though we are complete strangers ! Take that, hold on to it if you can. Keep making art, keep expressing yourself… and remember your not alone.
