Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Kindness Shown to me as I Battle Depression


--by drjoybug, posted May 10, 2020
As my companion known as depression journeys with me, I find some days easier than others. The most debilitating part for me is the total lack of motivation to do ANYTHING.

Today I talked and texted with many friends. Each of them was so understanding and supportive. None of them dismissed my feelings, they just listened and created a space of comfort for me.
I thanked them all and am so grateful for their presence. Because of their kindness, love, and compassion, I was that I returned to go deep and regain some motivation; I went on a car ride with my dog for about an hour.

Thank you all so very much

My life is blessed by knowing you.

Joy
