Smiling Depression

May 11, 2018

I have seen articles these past few days concerning individuals around the world who felt suicide was the only cure for what ailed them.  Smiling depression seems to be one of the causes of the untimely deaths of a few of these individuals.

My daughter told me about this common, but yet seemingly unheard of depression that is much more common than you would imagine.  According to statistics she informed me 73% of the people in America suffer from this depression.

As many parents have stated in their twitter accounts and blogs, be nice to those around you and hug the ones you love so they feel they have value and worth as a human being.  When you suffer, you usually suffer alone.  Not wanting to trouble others with your problems, or insecurities.

You are not alone. Talk with your family, talk with your friends, talk with someone wherever you may be, it \could save your life and help you to understand that there are many great opportunities ahead.

We all have been through some type of depression in our lives.  Smiling depression appears to be the most common as no one can read behind the joy, happiness and exuberance for life projected until the final breath comes on this Earth.  Reality hits and many say, “I never saw it coming”.   There is resources to help any loved one by going to websites or calling. I have listen one below that has access nationwide 24/7.

It’s Your Dream, live it.

May 5, 2018

Often people are afraid to go after it is they really want to do in life. Whether the fear comes from internal frustration or external rejection we all have to deal with the truth of where we are.
When there are goals or dreams involved don’t let anyone stop you from achieving what you desire in your life. Many will tell you, you’re to small, to tall, you talk funny, you’re not smart enough and the list goes on and on but don’t let those people suppress the accomplishments you feel a drive for. Remember it’s your dream, live it.
No one can stop you from accomplishing anything in life but you. So go after what you want, need desire and never give up because of others. It’s okay to change goals after you find out they are not really what you want, or you have new visions toward a new destiny. Just never stop believing in yourself, go live your dream.
