For anyone going through depression:

If any of you've been keeping up at all with my blogs, you'll know that i've been in some fairly dark places these past few months, heck this past week even. I've always heard, and always said, that it does get better, that things wont always be so bleak, but lately ive really found that to be true. I finally got past my nervousness and started opening up to people (remember gerard's advice speech about getting help when your depressed? yeah i finally took that advice.) First i told my best friend, then someone else im really close to whose older just a few days ago. I was soooo scared to open up though, scared i'd scare them off or just end up burdening them with more problems, and just scared to open up period because im such a private and shy person, but im so glad i did. Now my best friend can help me out, and she's been a great source of support to me, more than im sure she knows. My other friend, the older one, has helped tons too because she's supportive too and was able to shed her own light on things - she's been there, done that, and gotten better and everything she's told me has really helped and made me think. Anyways, i guess im just here to say that to everyone whose going through depression or a rough patch, that it DOES get better and it DOES help to talk to people. Don't be afraid to talk to people and do not let your depression control you and make you think your nothing because you are NOT your depression. Furthermore, even if no one else on here does, I believe in you. Just keep running and don't give up, because it does get better, and dont be afraid to open up to someone and get some help/support.

Keep running,
~ Kari
