Every week I see at least one person open up about dealing with depression.

I’ve seen YouTubers open up about depression, friends on Facebook, and strangers on Instagram. I’m no doctor, but it doesn’t take a genius to see that being open about depression is increasingly becoming less taboo.

Sadness comes in many forms, but depression is stated as being, “Feelings of severe despondency and dejection.” The example sentence in the dictionary is “self-doubt creeps in and that swiftly turns to depression”.

A trained therapist is truly the best person to talk to during those times.

Pulling oneself out of a sad state can ¬†happen through action and mindset. To stop myself from going into a sad place or to get myself out of a sad moment, I listen to Gary Vee on Youtube. Everyday his YouTube gets me pumped. His over the top personality makes me laugh and his generosity makes me motivated. Little triggers makes a difference. I don’t ever want to feel deeply sad, so I make personal adjustments to decrease the likelihood of me becoming sad.

Everyone is different, but little actions can make a big difference. Know what makes you motivated to get out of bed, self awareness goes a long way.

No, I’m not depressed, but this article is for those that are depressed. Please take care of yourself. Please get the help you need, and if you know someone who is depressed, help them the best way you can.


The journey to success will always and forever be the best part, so enjoy the road your on and never give up on yourself!


I hope that sharing my experiences and sharing your experiences that we both grow to reach our full potential!
