The Root of “It.”

catseye3_hst_960

There is an underlying factor to depression. 

It is a word, a feeling, and the prism I have looked at the world through. 

You dont have to read this if you dont want to!

If I share this with you,

you will recoil in pain or retreat to thought;

it will wash over you, or you will rail in disagreement;

you will deny it or surrender to its power over you;

you’ll cry out for relief or search for it’s opposite through whatever means necessary; 

you will seek Ggod, or the demons that fester and foster it;

you will grieve it or rail against your having it;

you’ll accept its power over you or will bluster its existence away;

you will look at it and into it or you will work  harder to hide it;

you will embrace its disturbing premise or you will continue to die from it.

    • Hmmm. I think we might have a different definition of share.
      I appreciate you stating your willingness to stand witness. What I have learned is that we really want someone to just listen to us. “You know,” is a popular term used by survivors. What they are really asking is ‘Do you hear me?’
