  1. Sometimes the darkness feels comforting because you can't see the truth of who you are. 

  2. How can we get over hating ourselves on a level no one else can? 

  3. Has anyone ever found their true love on Depression Forums? I would love to hear some stories.

      Hey Thornwell! Awwww, thanks! I do have a new blog and Facebook page and both are taking off quite nicely! I've been spending a lot of time on them. And yeah, I haven't been on DF much over the last several weeks... too much going on IRL! How are you these days? Nice to see ya! =) =)

      I'm good. I accepted a new job so I will be very limited in time. I won't be on here much but that does mean I get to focus more on doing other things that will build a good foundation for me to build on in the future. Glad to see you and great to hear about the trajectory of your blog! Thanks for the update.

  5. As I was typing earlier this song came on my Pandora. Made me think of you. 

    Swing Life Away
    Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
    Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
    Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?
    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
    Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words
    We live on front porches and swing life away,
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand
    I've been here so long, I think that it's time to move
    The winter's so cold, summer's over too soon
    Let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow
    I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
    But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world
    We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go
    We live on front porches and swing life away
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave till the end
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand until you hold my hand
    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
    Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words
    We live on front porches and swing life away
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave till the end
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand
    Swing life away
    Swing life away
    Swing life away
    Swing life away

      Great seeing here, Aly. Miss seeing you more often. :Cooptsearch:

  7. Your length of writing is perfect. Thanks for sharing. So glad you're here. Although I can't say I completely understand what you're going through I know you'll find a great group of people here who have been in that exact spot you find yourself in. There are so many caring people here and I would love to see your story develop and ultimately see you flourish even as your battling some pretty weighty stuff. Again, I'm happy you found this online family you can belong to.
  8. I found this the other day and thought of you. Not sure if I've shared this with you before.

  9. “A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.” 

    C.S. Lewis | The Problem of Pain

      C.S. Lewis was one of the authors I probably read more than any other in my grammar and high school years...I took a class on him in college.

      Always an interesting writer and thinker.  When I was a Christian, I thought his apologetics--and more the way he wrote about them--were brilliant.  Though in time, I would come to dismiss some of what I saw as flawed or overly-rosy logic of it.  

      The lunatic is a lunatic because the rest of us can literally see, feel, test and experience the sun.  Not so with an invisible, silent deity.  In fact, those who hear voices (schizophrenia and the like) are indistinguishable on this point from the religiously fervent who hear god speaking to them.  Early cave men understandably were sometimes thought to believe their own inner monologues were the voices of gods speaking to them.  Don't mean to get into 'debate' here, but hopefully it's okay to share from my own journey.  (I remain open and humble and in many ways seeking, even if not finding, a higher power).

      Thank you so much for sharing your journey with me. I appreciate hearing how other people gravitate towards or away from faith in the God of the bible. 

  10. Hey Aly. Just checking in. Thinking of you lately.

      Thank you for checking up on me I cant express how much it means to me. I am back from holiday now, father took me on a tour of the middle east (in between his business meetings) on the way back :flowers: 

      how have things been for you? I hope that we can speak on df chat some time soon, or perhaps pm.

  11. Glad you're here Shadows. You're in a great place and we are glad to support you any way we can. It's a great thing to hear that things have improved, even if it's just a bit.
  12. I'm so sorry you're in this position. It must be extremely difficult for your marriage to constantly be pulled from both ends. There are so many resources out there that I think can help you. I'd like to give you some information from various sources but to do so here would be seen as soliciting. Since I operate from a Christian worldview I would say you should google something like "christian counselors" or something similar. What I'm not saying here is that spirituality will heal everything. There may be something medically wrong here that should be diagnosed by a doctor. I hope the best for you and pray that you are able to find what you're looking for.
