Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening to you! Thank you for reading my blog and I appreciate those of you who have been following my blog. It is in my hopes to connect with people who are or who have been struggling. Sometimes we all need a little bit of help to get to the next level. I hope I can be a part of your positive journey as some have been a part of mine. I know how it feels to be alone and empty. I have been at the bottom of the seemingly endless pit of sadness and depression. I am writing this to you or the person you know who may need to read this. That bottomless pit is not bottomless. That seemingly endless pit of depression will end once you decide it ends. I once sat in that pit of emptiness and pondered on a taking the easy way out. I too, once looked for answers at the bottom of an alcohol bottle. I too, once used violence as a way to communicate my screams for help. You must channel that hate, anger, that feeling of aloneness, depression, sadness, into fuel to fight your way out of it. Dig deep inside yourself and find that will to survive and survive. That’s how I overcame my depression. Begin your journey and just simply start walking in another direction. Reach out to someone positive and be around that positive person. Find that glimpse of light and follow that light. That light will turn into a shining bright star which will lead you to the burning sun. You can survive, I did. I am here to tell you that it’s not an easy road, but once you take those steps forward, do not stop walking nor look back. Only look back to help those behind you. Remember to live in the moment and not in your past. Do not allow your past or past self to define who you are in the moment. Be in the moment. Be in the now. When I made the decision to move forward and pick myself up from the emptiness, my journey began. I saw my path, it was unclear at first, but with every step my path became clear. I met new people. I met new opportunities and created new opportunities at life. My past does not define me. That old me is no longer; I shed my old skin and reinvented who I am. Even today I am still reinventing myself. I am learning new things. I read books that are educational and positive. I surround myself with people who are positive and people who I can grow with. I ensure to feed my being positive information and positive energy. I am here to tell you that I have found my way out of that bottomless pit. I know how it feels there. Do not give up, hold to your faith. Find your way out, but you have to be willing to make those first steps forward. If you need someone to talk to please contact me. I know how it feels to be alone. You are not alone.
