"If the whole earth was blind, what would beauty look like?
A caring heart
A kind spirit
A helping hand
A gentle voice
A soft touch
A listening ear.
Beauty isn’t what we see, it’s what we feel.
So close your eyes and see the beauty around you.
Close your eyes and be beautiful."

When someone’s depressed, stating obvious comments like these are usually counter productive.
I’ve heard all of these before. And then some. People who don’t experience depression don’t understand how you can’t just ‘Be happy’. They think changing your lifestyle will help. In many cases, yes, it will. But if it were that easy depression would not be so hard to get rid of and affecting millions of people.
For many, including me, it’s a challenge to just get out of bed in the morning, weighed down by constant negative emotions. It’s not that we want to be unhappy, our brains just don’t understand the concept of ‘WOW. The world is such an extraordinary place and it’s great to be alive.’
