Ok. I don’t care what people think or say. But tonight has made me realize a lot of things. Just the reality of mental illness and battling that demon in your head every day. I’m not doing this for publicity or for people to feel sorry for me. I doing it to help others that feel the same as I do. No negative comments. If you don’t like it then please feel free to delete it from your timeline. So here it goes…

These photos are taken under 24 hours apart. This is what depression looks like. The left side is the person that lies to myself, my friends, my family and the public. I lie saying I’m ok and I’m happy carrying on with a normal “happy life”. I smile to the world and myself to show I’m strong. I CAN DO THIS! The reality of depression is the right hand side photo. The raw photo. This is beneath all the make up, the perfectly groomed hair and smile. The puffy red eyes that cries to myself in my flat. Feeling alone when you have amazing support. Depression is shown in different ways by different people. You do not know what goes on behind closed doors and how people truly feel. So be kind, be supportive and never judge anyone. Everyone is battling a demon. Support mental health. Please feel free to share or even donate to one to the many charities. Thank you for reading. ?
