I try to keep my posts upbeat for the most part but sometimes it is necessary to discuss more serious matters.
Depression is a serious illness and if not treated sometimes it leads to suicide.
I was visiting with Kathryn from Crochet Concupiscence and saw that she has a project by the name of #mandalasforMarinke.
When I read what it was all about I decided that I was going to take part and that I needed to share this project with you and hopefully you will take part too.
Marinke or Wink was the crochet designer behind “A Creative Being” blog. I came across that blog several times in my travels 🙂 and I liked her creations, so it was shocking to know that she had died. Please click on the links and it will explain everything.
I would like to say: if you feel that you are depressed and think you need help to kick depression to the curb, then please reach out to one person or a group of people or a doctor and don’t be ashamed to ask for help.
Life is difficult at times, but we should know that bad times will pass.
I will admit that I don’t suffer from depression but it is only because I stay away from what triggers it.
Each person has their own unique triggers, and it is important to identify them.
Let me share with you what my triggers are: 1- the horrible daily news 2- a sedentary lifestyle 3- no sunlight for days.
When I don’t take the steps to correct these triggers I can literally feel myself descending…
And I try to stay grateful, none of us have the “Perfect Life” because that life does not exist, so be thankful for the little things in life.
Okay, let me stop here. Please send a SOS if you need help….
Stay positive and take part of #mandalasforMarinke, God bless You!
Rest In Peace Marinke.
