Trigger warning: suicide content:
My friend who just died from depression had said of him that he could never accept that people loved him. I know when I am depressed I, also, don’t feel loved by others. I struggle to stay connected to others on many layers. I wonder if this is a common trait of those who experience major depression or major depressive episodes such as with Bipolar I and II.
I love the above statement. I’m terrible at expressing it to my loved ones and friends when I am in those darkest of moments. So this the statement I use to convey that I’m hurting or needing to feel more love than usual.
Stay safe and know you are loved. Wendy
