That girl

by Savanna lacey
(Selby)

She sits on her bed crying on her own, no wonder she always think she's alone.

When she cries, her heart start to ache,

People start to think she's a fake.

When she needs everyone around her, people still sit there and think nothing of her.

It breaks her up slowly inside,

but she always puts a fake smile on the other side.

Savanna,

I want to let you know that I understand how you feel. I've been there and what you feel is quite normal for those of us that have experienced depression. Depression is one of the most misunderstood mental health issues of our time.

Being depressed is nothing to be ashamed of. It is not a disease, it isn't the result of some chemical imbalance or inherited gene. It is a wake up call that there is dis-ease ... that you have some healing to do. We all do!

It doesn't mean your broken or need to be fixed. You are human and you've probably experienced suffering in your journey called life. My suspicion is that you have experienced trauma in your life and you haven't fully felt the pain as a result of that trauma.

You can heal all of this. You can overcome depression for good and go on to live a vibrant, exciting life again!

There are so many ways to heal from this. However, you have to decide that enough is enough. That you're tired of living this way and that you want to be happy again. Once you make that decision, reach out and get the help you need. I've done it, all of my clients have done it and you can too!

When you're ready, you can apply for a session with me and, together, we can get you back on track.

Until then ... sending you love and light.

Dana
