I want to know!

I for one, want to know your hurt and pain. Please never hide it behind a smile or a joke! You are important to many. Many love you, you are special! It should never be an embarrassment that your life takes a turn from what we think is normal! Sometimes being down is alright, but share it with those who care. Those who will pray for you and hold your hand without judgement! 

There are so many choices to make, but the worst is to think know one cares, we do, I do, but most importantly God does! There is not a person who does not get depressed at times. The sadness comes when you think no one else struggles with depression! Depression can be a prison with no escape. Only if you throw away the key to life around you, and those who are reaching out to help you! 

Open those prison doors, as only you can, come out from the darkness into the light and talk about it! People want to know, people want to care, people truly will never reject you if you will just help them understand! Understanding that can only come from you, at a time you think, you don't understand what's happening to you! 

Understanding comes from not locking yourself away from the world, but sometimes forcing your way back into the world by being proud of who you are! Knowing you are not alone, there are many of us out here who need to hear your cry! We need to see your tears and understand it's alright and we are alright! But it helps to know that depression can be a tool to life, and a tool to live, only if we reveal it's pain without shame! 

I for one, want to know. I want to hear. I want to walk beside you on your journey. You are not alone!
We need to reach out regardless of the results and the hurts, depression should never win we need to fight! 

Matthew 11:28 (NKJV)

28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
