I know you don't want to be seen
but I see you
hiding in the dark
trying to let the world pass by without you.
I know those feelings:
The tears come for no reason
you don't answer the phone
you don't care about email and facebook.
laundry, groceries, bills, cooking, homework
every bit of it is overwhelming.
Your family isn't sure what to think...
they are scared too.
They don't know what to do.
You want to be left alone.
I know your heart is in a silent scream for help
but no one can hear
You are afraid to tell anyone
no one can understand.
They'll judge you.
They'll think poorly of you.
But my lovely, I understand.
I know, I've been there with you in the dark.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Depression is a world wide epidemic.
Millions of us understand.
But I do know you can talk about it.
YOU can talk about it.
YOU can get some help from your doctor
YOU can get some help from a friend
YOU can get some help from a counselor
YOU can get some help from your church
Don't suffer alone.
Find someone to talk to.
I see you alone in the dark.
The light is coming back soon.
You can make it, with a little help.
You have to make it.
Because the world needs you.
YOU are one of a kind.
YOU are marvelous.
YOU CAN DO THIS!
When Jesus spoke again to the people he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever believes in me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12
