About this photo: “My depression has left me homebound majority of the time. Leaving feels impossible most days, but I have a toddler, so I have to force myself out whenever possible, even if it means medicating and isolating. On the plus side, it is so wonderful to see her out and about. She is so bright and effervescent. So friendly with kids often three times her age. Witnessing moments like this, my little one hugging another little girl, I find to be so beautiful and inspiring. It definitely makes me want to be able to get out more, reconnect with people who the depression made me push away, and definitely makes me want a hug!”
I think we all need a good hug once in a while. : )
