There is no right or wrong way to handle depression, but acknowledging its presence is a start. It’s important to have a strong support system that can help move you through the day when you feel things spiraling. Jobs are not always kind to those dealing with mental illness. It seems co-worker’s kind the triggers and trip them on purpose which makes the work environment combative for the person trying to function with depression. Having that person you can call, or text is always a help. Never let someone make you feel you are lazy, inadequate, or subpar because you are battling with depression. This doesn’t make you weak. Everyone has something they must work through and depression is just you challenge to overcome. You are a work in progress as is every person on this planet.

If you agree…understand this same position equally applies. We can’t speak of equality in any aspect they pick and choose where it applies. Double standards are a hinderance to progress regardless of where they apply. The bottom line is all men do not cheat, and all women do not cheat. There are people in the world that cheat and it’s a trash move. No one man nor woman deserves to have their trust violated. No one deserved to give their all only to be made to feel less than, and to be taken advantage of. You don’t deserve what that man did to you. There is a man out there that doesn’t deserve what that woman did to him. If neither side can’t see the person if front of them because of their past they need to consider healing before they hurt someone.  The narrative on pain doesn’t belong to just women nor men. Sistas we must fight the urge to lose principle because of the pain we’ve endured.

If She Doesn’t Hear You Walk Away.

Of course, you want to communicate in a manner that isn’t hard or off putting. You can even understand a bit of confusion as usually you are the support, but it shouldn’t cause a fight. You shouldn’t have to defend your character nor person. If you do realize you are in a one-sided relationship that doesn’t care to support you. It is hurtful and can add to what you are already facing. When the dust settles re-evaluate the nature of the relationship.

Take the time to learn about our foreign affairs. You are a citizen and citizenship has responsibilities…being informed should be among them.

There is a war American has never seen…and I pray she never does.
