Untangling the myth. Sunday February 15, 2015

Depressed people...

Think.
Maybe overthink.
Love.
Maybe over love.
Are scared of getting it wrong.
Need to feel that they are loved for getting it wrong.
Can see sunny days.
Can't always touch sunny days.
Can describe their hurt.
But can't describe what would fix it.
Can move other people's mountains.
But the weight of the palm-sized stone in front of them is heavier.
Understand your pain.
And can't show theirs.
Have a sense of humour.
And hide behind it.
Can cope in your crisis.
Need to see your eyes when it's their crisis.
Make black and white decisions.
Then agonise over grey.
Are complicated.
And find comfort in the uncomplicated.
Breathe in and out.
But not always in that order.

Love from

The room above the garage.
A Moodscope member.
