The day I told my Dad that I needed professional help changed my life. I refused being labeled a "problem child" etc because deep down I knew who I was. Don't wait for someone to suggest it because unfortunately most of our parents don't know enough or believe in depression.
It took me crying and being aggressive about it for him to see how serious I was. I don't blame him at all because I understand where we are coming from as a people. It had to be God in that moment because I had been suffering for so many years, I wanted my life back!!
It hurts to think that so many are roaming the streets with no answers & because depression is still far from being real in the African community they can't even get help from family members. Instead they are labeled as problem children or written off...left alone do die slowly.
Having been in that hell for so many years is the reason I choose to see the light in any situation I'm in now and why I'm sensitive when it comes to people's energies. I can only work and come alive with positive vibes. Life is too real to be fronting on it for even a second.
I will never not help someone who is going through a similar pain. Sometimes all it takes is to be kind. That doesn't mean be a punching bag just being real with them. They may not see it when you say it but they will. Give them an option in the maze that they are in.
Very few things can break me now ...... I bounced back from a long period of confusion and pain where I was in a dark place so the way I see it is there is always way out if I believe in it, Always!!!
I remember when I started losing my voice and started living in my mind. Woah that was scary and it only got worse the more I found comfort in being alone and isolating myself because the inner voice only got louder while my outer voice disappeared.
Self esteem gone....Suddenly I went from the opinionated confident guy to a mouse who didn't believe he was big enough to fulfill his purpose. Standing out became a curse, I hated the attention, I consciously made myself small to fit in. I didn't have the heart for the spotlight
Went from getting Happy good times drunk to drown the pain drunk etc became a way of life, the dark type of fun became my drug for a long time. Becoming friends with people who allowed me to destroy myself.....Hated the People who forced me to look in the mirror & face the truth
Anyway I could go on forever. It was a good 8 years of my life. The only expalnation I have is God, thru it all I believed,it was young but I believed, never failed to send me signs. I held onto those. I wake up these days & it's like it was a movie.
It's like I was suffocating for so long and all of a sudden I can breath again ...... Mentally and spiritually I've never felt more alive. There's purpose to everyday 🙏🏾 ...... Get Help, Be Real with yourself, protect your peace and be Kind ..... Helping others helps You.
