Today I have woken up inspired, excited and the most content I have felt for a while!
I think I know what I want to do with myself for the time being and that’s help people with their depression. It’s kind of what I am doing with this blog anyways, well in my humble opinion at least!
So what can I, or anyone else, do to help someone with depression well its quite easy really and that’s simply to LISTEN! People want to talk to about their problems but sometimes don’t have anyone to be a sounding board, someone they feel would understand without judgement.
I was given this link to a facebook account run by MIND a charity that help people with Mental Health issues and yes depression is a mental health condition not something made up by people who feel “down”, there is a difference!
http://www.facebook.com/mindelephant is the account and what I like about it so far is that when people post on the wall about their bad day(s) lots of people comment and rally round them. If your on Facebook worth sending a friend request to the elephant!
So can I realistically help someone? I would like to think so as I am a very good listener in fact if I listened to half the advice I had given people over the years I probably wouldn’t be in this mess now LOL
My point is to people who feel alone your not you can talk to me. Send me a message and vent! Nothing helps more than a good vent.
