Seek Out Happiness

Tonight we want you to realise that you can search and seek out happiness. You don’t have to wait for it to come to you, as you may feel like you will wait forever.

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed” MLK JR. You have the right to DEMAND your freedom from depression and mental health problems, it is an unalienable right to life and you can tell yourself that you want rid of this feeling.

Of course, we know it won’t go away just like that but it’s a start. The more you believe in yourself and don’t be afraid, the closer you are to getting out of that despair.

Don’t be scared of rejection, for it strengthens us. Embrace it and seek out those who will embrace you for who you are! Those who willingly listen to you, they are your friends. They may not know what to say, but if they love you then they will listen.

“Happiness is not a state to arrive at, but a manner of traveling.” – Margaret Lee Runbeck

Many, many famous people have suffered from depression or mental health problems but they have still succeeded in their lives. Don’t feel like your feelings are a barrier to success, use them as a catalyst to change the world!

Don’t let depression hold you back!
