this is what i know:

i know that i am stronger than this depression.
i know that this, too, shall pass. and when it does, there will be such a lightness in my heart because of all the space it has cleared.
i know that i am not alone, that there are people out there feeling the exact same way i do, at this very moment.
i also know that there are people out there loving me.
i know that i have much to give.
i know that the universe is trying to teach me a lesson that i need to be patient with.
i know that i need to pay more attention to self-care.
i know that it is easy to be kind.
i know that the person i love is inside of me.
