Having depression makes everything seems difficult, insurmountable and horrible. Know that these moments do not define your beautiful and real value, nor your identity.
This difficulty in getting out of bed, those teeth and body demanding to clean, this food impossible to cook, these excessively anxious tasks that are postponed, these work breaks: each of the things that are unrealizable, in the short, medium or long term, do not make you a less good person.
Never forget that your health is important. You have the right to take time for yourself, regardless of the reasons, situations and contexts. You deserve to be listened to, respected, set up and helped to heal. You are not a burden.
Depression doesn’t define you.
