I've felt a little lost lately. It's not something I openly talking about in normal circumstances, because I don't ever like people thinking I'm 1) Feeling sorry for myself or 2) Trying to get others to feel bad for me. I also don't usually like to use this space to vent, but every now and then, maybe it's necessary.
The women in my family have dealt with clinical depression for as long as I can remember and I struggle with it at times as well. I think it's mostly seasonal, because in the Spring, Summer and Fall, I am usually perfectly fine. But by the end of Winter every year I feel...the only word I can ever think to describe it is lost. Like I am wondering without purpose and struggling to find purpose. Maybe it's because I can't be out in nature, or I'm not getting enough Vitamin D...I don't know.
But now that Spring is here, I am staying optimistic. I have focused on making plans for the Summer, whether that be camping or photo shoots and trying to purge my feelings onto canvas.
Sorry for the down day. Does anyone else feel drained by the Winter or struggle with depression in general? How do you deal, what inspires you to feel better?
