It’s so difficult to describe depression to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling— that really hollowed-out feeling.
Two hardest things about recovery:
- Realising you’re worth recovery
- Saying goodbye to the sick you.
It’s so tempting to go back to the sick you sometimes, even when you realise you’re worth recovery. Just when you start really recovering and making huge progress, you seem to secretly want to go back to how you were. It is very important that you ignore that and keep going anyway. Recovery is hard, but worth it.
