As I feel the Spring air hit my skin, my depression lifts up into the air and flies away from me. My head clears up as I start to feel relieved and free. I even feel a smile on my face.
The sound of birds warms my heart. Love fills up my heart again. The hatred disappears into the warmth of the sun that is brightly shining down on me.
Trees are starting to bloom with beautiful flowers. I can’t help but smile as I look up at branches, watching Spring finally arrive after a long cold winter. The smell of freshly bloomed flowers fills my nose with sensation.
I can’t help the happiness from coming over me nor do I want to stop it. Depression loves robbing my life’s happiness more than half of the year. So when I feel happiness, it takes over my heart and body as if it’s something new.
When depression comes in, life is drained out of me or I’m too numb to function. Every day, I wake up wondering how I’m going to feel that day. I hope for the best. I let myself down, while others I’m shining bright like a star in the night sky.
The warm weather definitely helps me wake up knowing my depression may stay away from me. It’s the only hope I have during the Spring as well as Summer.
During the winter, I love the snow because it’s truly so beautiful as it layers everything with its touch. But if the snow isn’t around, my mind gets lost in my thoughts and I have no control over my feelings. Depression wins more often in the winter because of the bitter air hissing it’s way in my ears.
But the Spring air comes along, and depression has a chance of creeping in. Warmer days brighten up my spirits even on the darkest days when I just want to fade away. I just go outside and instantly all my worries lift up into the blue sky.
Happiness comes over me with a dose of strength. I get through the day with a smile. Then, I give depression the finger and enjoy the rest of my day.
