I sometimes write my posts in present tense, as if the experiences to which I refer are happening now. I do this for two reasons:
- I think it makes the post more powerful. And even though it might not be happening at the moment, it was very real and true.
- There may be readers who are currently experiencing what I am sharing from my story. I hope this gives a sense of “you are not alone.”
These are my stories of my journeys through depression. While I am not licensed nor trained to give depression advice, I do think that we can learn from each other as we share our experiences and what has or hasn’t worked in our lives. I may tag some of my posts with “depression advice” just so that readers can find depression helps that worked for me.
