“The Worst Thing About Depression”

The worst thing about depression is how true your vision seems, like misery is the only correct perspective and everything you think when you’re happy is a sham. I didn’t even want to be happy anymore because I’d rather live in honest misery than fake bliss.

—Michelle Tea, Valencia

    all the more reason to be proactive about it!! there is nothing like self-empowerment.
    believe in yrself, believe in what u can–and *have* done, katie. sometimes it’s that perspective that saves us from despair.
