I’ve looked up to them for years and the more I think I can’t resonate with their artistry and story more and more, I find myself surprised again and fall deeper in respect and connection than before. This video and entry means the world to me and in many ways encapsulates similar events I was dealing with the past few years with love and in this last year with depression. It takes courage to share the deepest parts of you with others, especially in the areas that are the ugliest and most frightening to confront. But with deep breaths, determination for yourself, and love from others, confronting those worst parts of you and your life can lead to a path of healing and self-discovery of courage and love. Keep going. You are worth it.
Here’s a snippet of their story: link below
“To me, that’s how God works. You break, and it creates this accessibility that allows God to mend you, heal you. You get stronger, and then get broken again in a different way… And no, we don’t have it all figured out, and we have to brace for whatever is next, but there is a new understanding and ability to communicate. Not only with each other, but for me with myself. A kinder way of speaking to me….To anyone who is in a rough part of their relationship, who is struggling in their marriage and trying to keep a happy face to the outside world. To anyone dealing with depression and not thinking that it’s worth it to keep going, to deal with the burden of living. Don’t. Give. Up. Don’t be opposed to reaching outside to get help and to keep searching for the right help. For what is going to be effective for you. And if you love someone who struggles with mental health, don’t give up. Continue to love them, to search for how to support them through these waters…. It took me a long long time to get that. Even though it can be tough, I wouldn’t change it. It’s part of me and has taught me so much about who I am and has challenged me in all aspects of love. So keep fighting everyone, there is still so much love that is needing to exist.”
