 Depression Poems

Have you ever considered writing depression poems? If you have one you can submit your poem here. It is actually much like journaling and can be extremely beneficial. Writing poems, and journaling, is a great way to get in touch with and process your feelings, express them in a safe, constructive way and aide in the healing process.

Often times, depression is the result of a traumatic or chronic event that has significantly affected the individual’s self esteem, their sense of self worth. By taking time to write out your feelings, no matter how raw they might be, you can begin to free yourself from what binds you and start empowering yourself again. Through journaling or writing poems, you take your power back and reclaim yourself for the amazing, powerful person that you really are!

Something Inspiring:

I came across this recently and thought "how simple and how powerful"! I hope you see this and that you enjoy this!

Twenty Dollars: Author Unknown:

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you - but first, let me do this."

He proceeded to crumble the 20 dollar note up. He then asked. "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air. "Well," he replied, "what if I do this?" He dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.

"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.

We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you. The worth of our lives comes, not in what we do or who we know, but by who we are.

You are special - don't ever forget it!"
