i have bouts of depression, on and off. on my off days, i listen to music (sam smith, sade) and read quotes

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. - Thomas Edison

Hi KindraLamb, I suggest you visit you doctor for professional help. Music is a great deviation from stress and depression. Have you tried yoga and meditation?

I like Winston Churchill's one: When you're going through hell, keep going.

KindraLamb, thank you for that Edison quote. I hadn't heard it before and it's just what I need at the moment x

"Remind yourself that it's ok not to be perfect."- Anon

And so, I had to make a move and seek the help of a counselor for my depression. turns out i have "anger issues". i can't believe it. my counselor told me read these articles:

I feel uncomfortable telling my problems to a stranger. And anger issues? I just cant believe it.

One I often say to my kids, particularly during times of change:

It'll be okay in the end, and if it's not okay, it's not the end.

Dunno who said it.
