Depression does make us experience vast dark emptiness. I have learned to put that emptiness to use. It is always going to be there but I learned how stay away from the deepest pits and give myself permission to take temporary shelter and avoid long-term residence.
I would never say to someone that I know what you are going through because every depression/cave is unique. I think the safety precautions we need when we find ourselves in our depression/caves are the same for everyone.
Hi in the shadows. I understand how you feel. I often think people are tired of me and I get scared to talk to them and tell them anything. You have friends here who are safe people to talk to and would never judge you. Pleased to meet you xxx
