Depression is a lying bastard and it stole a friend today.
It’s easy to feel alone, even with the new ways people are becoming technologically interconnected. It’s easy to feel lonely even with hundreds of people liking your statuses and retweeting you. It’s easy to forget that there is a person at the end of that link, but we’re here.
Depression tells you that giving up will be easier. That fighting fails and that you are truly alone. Depression is a friend to anger, jealousy, doubt. But depression is not your friend.
A friend wouldn’t make you feel isolated, and leave you with doubt as your only companion. A friend wouldn’t coax you into forgetting all the love that surrounds you, the people who care about your well being. A friend wouldn’t want to see you stagnate and slowly petrify, waiting until the paralysis is complete to settle into your hollow shell.
Depression lies, and it is no friend to anyone.
You are loved. No matter what the challenge. No matter the regret, or sadness in your soul, you are loved. Those who love you may not have a miracle cure for you, they may not even understand, but they still care. And if they have solutions and help, be smart enough to listen. Try anything, try everything! Get help from whomsoever will give it!
And remember: depression always lies. Find yourself. Find love. Find help. Move. Actively seek the things that set your soul alight and tend that flame until it burns away the sadness.
It’s hard. I won’t lie and say it’s not. I’m not one of those people talking at you from the other side, having successfully climbed out of the pit. I’m still in there, clinging to a rope and working my way up. But I am lucky enough to have support, to have friends and family who are smart, loving, and supportive. Even when I am too stubborn and sad to see my own value, they do. If you need help, I’ll be that for you. But get help. Talk to friends, doctors, therapists, family, anyone who will listen.
But DON’T listen to that voice inside your head that says you are not worth saving. That you are a failure and deserve guilt. That you are hollow. That you do not deserve happiness. You do. You deserve all the happiness and satisfaction that this life has to offer. The triumphs and trappings of overcoming the challenge of day-to-day living. You should be here. Your depression should not. Don’t believe a word it says.
Depression is a lying bastard. Fight it with every breath you have. It’s hard, but it may be the most important battle and you’re not alone in the fight.

Everywhere anytime your a liiiiiiiiiiiittle bit late.
Of course, yes! You’re a real friend and a virtual, tumblr-like friend. You are the whole package. Aw yeah!
1: Don’t fall asleep angry. But if you do, wake up in the middle of the night and hold her as close as you can.
2: Laugh during sex, especially if you bump heads. If you aren’t laughing, you’re with the wrong person.
3: If you don’t feel comfortable dancing naked with your partner and showing them your four chins when you laugh, you’re doing it wrong.
4: Romance isn’t for everyone, but a post-it note in their lunchbox telling them they’re the best will never go amiss.
5: Don’t cling to them at parties. Dance with friends and spend time with acquaintances, but wink at each other across the room.
6: Keep everything 50/50, or you will fall out of balance.
7: Stop comparing your relationship to others- you are you, don’t try to be someone else.
8: Be kind. Give them space when they need it, but be their home when they come back.
9: Be proud to love them.
10: Support them through whatever they do in life, even if it’s a stupid decision. People need to make their own mistakes, but be there if it falls apart, and never say ‘I told you so’.
And most of all, love with your whole heart, or don’t love at all.

It’s no secret that I like Lady Knights like, a lot. I put together a little randomizer as a sort of exercise. Then I thought, why not share it?
So here’s the thing. Five categories of traits. Pick three and run with it! Bonus challenge: do all five categories. And of course you’re free to add to the categories if what you want isn’t in there. Have fun with it! Don’t forget to tag #Lady Knights so I can see the cool stuff you come up with!
Here’s my starter to kick things off: Fists, Top Heavy, Nervous, Indian, Shark/Piscine.
What a great exercise! Drawings to come…
