Oh hai.

I feel happy today. Maybe you don't. Maybe you've been depressed and anxious. I'd like to talk to you about it.

/2 I was talking to my dad yesterday and I realized that even though I've got plenty of tasks and challenges and problems on my plate, I feel good. I feel happy. It's not that they stop being problems, it's that I can survive them.

/3 The realization was remarkable. Not only was I feeling good, but it had stopped feeling weird or different to feel good.

/4 It wasn't always this way. If you'd told me four years ago that I could feel this way, I wouldn't believe you. The stuff on my plate now would have been unendurable. (Actually, anything would have.)

/5 So, if you're depressed, or anxious, or the very popular depressed AND anxious, I just wanted to say . . . there is hope.

You may not be able to see it from where you are now. But there's hope.

/6 I know hope isn't easy to imagine if you're depressed and anxious now. It takes a leap of faith. You have to reach out, admit you need help and seek it and accept that it can work even if you can't imagine it working right now.

/7 Will people judge or dismiss or mock you for being open and seeking help? Some will. Screw 'em. If they aren't being assholes about this, they'll be assholes about something else. Why run your life based on what assholes will say?

/8 There can be a day when you wake up and think "wow, I've got a ton of things to do and work problems and financial problems and relationship problems, but . . . I'm okay, and I'm looking forward to tomorrow." You can reach that day.

/9 Take the leap. Ignore the voice in your head saying that nobody cares, that you're not worth it, that nothing will work, that you'll never be better. The voice is loud, but it lies. Talk to someone. Seek help. You're worth it. /end
