During our hardships is when we are the most vulnerable. It is the time when we are not thinking clear, have a lack of energy, with little desire to talk to anybody. The symptoms of depression. Even though I’m going through a hardship at this moment, I decided I must remain emotionally strong. I have to do it, not only for myself, but for the family and friends that, in a way, depend on me. I’ve always felt the responsibility to be the solid emotional base in my household. I must stay emotionally strong to help others move forward.
It is hard, but I know I can count on friends and family to help me when I need it. I’m thankful for that. I’m thankful now.
