*I chose to write my blog about the year 2000, which was the same year I first dealt with depression. My marriage had just ended after finding that my exhusband had lied to me, did not love me, and had cheated on me. I was devastated and thought that my life was finished.
I would tell myself that everything is ok and that my life was not over. I would also tell myself that I would fall in love again and experience true happiness again. I would advise myself to never put 100% confidence in a man or anyone else. We all make mistakes. We have to pick ourselves up after we fall down. Depression drags a person down and there are still so many things for a person to be happy about. Instead of sleeping all day, I would have made myself get up and go somewhere. I could go to a movie because I loved movies. I could also spend more quality time with my parents and hang out with some of my dearest friends again. The main thing that I would tell myself would be to make every moment count because time truly does fly by.
