Yesterday was the first time in a while that I had a complete melt down as a result of my depression. It felt almost foreign to have that sudden rush of intense sadness and despair stemming from seemingly nowhere. I get frustrated in moments like these as I feel that I’m doing so much better emotionally and mentally until I’m once again hurled off this cliff I’ve been balancing on. I wasn’t able to compose myself enough to take a photo yesterday but this morning I set out to capture how I felt as a way of reflecting and understanding.
