 “Anyone can give up: it’s the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength” – unknown

This quote, although inspirational and well-meaning may leave those of us that didn’t hold it together feeling defeated. Yes holding it together when the going gets tough does take strength, but when you run out of strength, run out of coping tools and can no longer hold it together that’s when you and those around you need to understand this doesn’t mean you are weak and you have no control. It means this time you need help getting through this. Giving up is not easy, it is painful, you can not just snap out of it.  It does take a lot of strength to get help, survive and move forward. It seems much easier to hide or end it all than to get help & face reality. Depression hurts everyone and there is help to put the pieces together & go forward. You are not alone. Reach out for help from professionals. That first step takes a lot of strength, then it’s baby steps after that.
