First blog post

I woke up this morning and decided to start a blog.  Because I finally have a clear picture of what is happening to me.  You see, I suffer from depression but there is something positive about it.  I was never able to express it.  This week, I understood.  I’m going through a major metamorphosis.

Danaus plexippus plexippus Wanderer butterfly/Monarch butterfly (Nymphalidae)

Look at me.  Hanging upside down between two worlds.  Trapped inside a cocoon which I have built for myself.  Don’t I look smart?

I look stupid, to both those who crawl on the ground and those who fly in the heavens.  But there is a still small voice inside that tells me that what I’m doing is okay.

  1. I suffer from depression, anxiety and PTSD, so much of what you say has a familiar ring to my ears. I read through all your posts so far and look forward to reading more.

  2. I am right with you. The winds of change are unkind and yeah, being stuck on the in-between is a lonely place. I find writing about it is therapeutic. I’m looking forward to reading more of your posts 🙂

  3. You might not be looking for understanding, but you have it from me. You may not want the attention, but you’ve caught mine. I can only hope that your journey brings with it the kind of growth, development and peace you may want. Either way, express away, we’re here. Welcome.

  4. Nice!!! Being in a cocoon is a hugely exciting place and it is wonderful that you have that awareness that you are going through the change ;). May you be blessed with clarity, peace and love as you transform !!

  5. Depression is something that can be overcome and I hope you find the strength to do so. Concentrate on the happy parts of life and surround yourself with friends and family that make you happy 🙂
    J.K. Rowling overcame it (and even derived a vital ‘character’ from it – dementors; who knows, maybe you’ll find something too?) and so did a friend of mine!
    I wish you luck!

  6. You have started to awaken to the beauty that you’ve always been. Some, call it depression. But I call it the last fight that the mind puts, until it will be birthed at another dimension of being! Well-done! Keep on writing!
