I choose to write my personal thoughts and feelings here, in an effort to not only process them for myself, but also to educate those who do not understand depression, and to connect with others going through similar situations. I realize that some of the things I say can be hurtful, though they are never meant to be, but the truth is raw and often painful. I say what’s on my mind. It’s not always pretty, in fact sometimes it’s downright ugly. I overreact because my feelings are intensified from my mood disorder, it can come out in my writing. It’s not meant to be taken personally. In fact, the reader of what I’m writing never crosses my mind as the words leave my fingertips, because this space is mine.
If you do not want to read it, I understand and that’s ok. If a possible employer chooses not to hire me based on my personal thoughts and feelings, which I express in my personal time, I don’t want to work for that person or company. Maybe that is foolish, but that’s my choice.
