Life, Depression, Cheesecake, and Stuff

It’s possible that this post is no more profound than the fact that I wanted to take a picture of the two cheesecakes my girls and I baked today…but here’s a bit of “food for thought” to go with the photo:

Dark v. light. Positive v. negative. Good v. bad. Every life has some of each.

Unfortunately, people struggling with depression might only be able to see the black, negative, bad side of life. The black cloud hovering just around their head keeps them from seeing, feeling, or appreciating the good stuff.

And that fact can be a serious problem for those of us who live with them. Sometimes their gloomy, negative outlook creeps into our own lives and tries to take over.

So here’s a reminder for those of you who, like me, live with depression in your household: Dance. Sing. Celebrate. Play. Make an extra cheesecake. We don’t have to live in the dark just because our depressed loved one has to.
