I contacted Alise Write a few months ago to ask her permission to post a huh-larious blog about her experience with the C25K program on my facebook page. I’ve been
stalking following her ever since. On a whim, I sent her a piece I had written that had nothing to do with fitness, at least not the physical kind. She was kind enough to not only read it, but publish it on her blog. I am honored to be featured by a writer I admire and humbled by the responses it received both publicly and privately. I’ve been reminded it’s okay not to be perfect.
People like to wrap depression up in a neat, tidy little box. Inside the box are sadness, tears, and perhaps some suicidal thoughts. But there’s nothing neat or tidy about depression. It comes in many shapes, forms, and sizes. It can be something you just “have” or something that is brought on by an event or series of events. There are many different faces of depression. This is mine.
