So yeah, I was looking at my last entry and noticed how I haven't been around. Funny thing is I really do miss taking the time and going through all the great entries, especially from the Yard. I feel like the dust is settling after a monstrous storm. I was wondering if I was going to share my personal experience here, I mean I don't know anybody personally but I think that maybe some of you may recognize yourselves and understand the struggles I went through.
Last year has been a mix of very positive and amazing experiences as well as the deepest lows I have ever felt. I think that everyone has a limit and I had certainly reached mine, professionally, personally and especially mentally. I'm not putting the blame on anything or anybody, sometimes it just happens that struggles come in packages.
Anyways, so long story short, I was off work for like 4 months trying to get myself together and doing the best I could as a dad/husband, not an easy thing when you are at the bottom. I have to say that I'm extremely lucky to have such great people around me like my family, friends and co-workers, it really helped me get over this gigantic hurdle and now I feel as though the gate has been opened and the lock has been broken.
Depression is hard to understand when you are on the outside looking in, a word of advice, just listen and make yourself available it makes a world of difference.
So now I'm looking for a new job and I feel amazing about it, I finally let go and I don't have to worry about how miserable things were.
Everything is taking a turn for the better!!! Finally!
I still look at your entries from time to time, great stuff and thank you for the Favs and comments in the last year.
Keep it real
