DepressionI've heard so many people tell those who suffer depression to just 'cheer up.' I wonder if they can really believe that it's that simple.More Like This
Depression isn't just sadness. It is emptiness, it is misery. It is pain and nothingness at once. When you are truly depressed you lack the ability or will to cheer yourself up. No one just 'has depression.' You suffer from it. This is depression:
You will wake at 5, 6, maybe 7am, feeling as though you had only just fallen asleep. It's likely you did. If you don't have to be somewhere, you could lie in bed for another 3 hours...too tired, too miserable and pathetic to crawl out of you bed. Or maybe you will sleep until 1pm, because it's so much easier to sleep through most of the day than actually live it, and you're so unbelievably tired anyway. You will push through the day, knowing that every hour will be a struggle and not knowing how you will feel tomorrow. People will ask what is wrong, and you will simply smile and say 'nothing, I'm just tired

He is the one who takes the chance and jumps first.
A Leader is not the one who scans the horizon for the destination,
He is the one who looks down to find the path.
A Leader isn't always the strongest, fastest, or smartest,
He just the one who uses all three to the best of his ability.
A Leader is not the one who never makes mistakes,
He is the one admits to all of them, then fixes them.
A leader does not think himself above others,
He thinks of others above himself.
A Leader is not the one who knows where the problem lies,
He is the one desperately searching for it's location.
But most importantly...
A Leader is not always the first into battle,
He is the one who has made sure that nobody has to be.
