A little while ago, our friend, we posted a little story on Instagram about "hidden depression" - and right now, we'd like to share it with you :)

A Little Story About "Hidden Depression"

I've always been known as the bubbly one, the fun one, the one who makes everyone laugh.

But for a long time now, I've been faking it. Faking it to hide my depression.

I know everybody would be shocked - if they knew how much I am suffering.

If they knew about the voice in my head that tells me I'm worthless and that I'll never be good enough.

If they knew that some nights I just lie in bed for hours, beating myself up for all the mistakes I've ever made.

If they knew just how much energy it takes to fake a smile and survive my darkest days.

If they knew that sometimes when I say "I'm OK", I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tightly, and say "I know you're not".

If you can relate, our friend, then please know that you are not alone, and that we are sending you lots of love and strength.

All our love,

The Depression Project Team.
