From scars to strength: the poetry of recovery | bianca

We know we should talk about depression, but we don’t. We don’t because it isn’t cheerful, enjoyable, or light. Kevin Breel found it difficult to speak about his confession. It is difficult for anyone to discuss.
Depression needs as much attention as possible. The term “knowledge” does not necessarily imply “information dissemination,” but rather “understanding.” Depression is a huge issue, but it’s even bigger that it’s so misunderstood. The four words “I suffer from depression” can surprise someone who has never experienced depression or doesn’t really understand what it means, so there’s a common misconception that depression is just being depressed when something goes wrong in your life.
“When you break up with your partner, when you lose a loved one, when you don’t get the work you want, but that’s sorrow – that’s a natural human emotion. True depression isn’t about being depressed when things go wrong in your life. True depression is when you’re depressed even when everything in your life is going well.

Confessions of a super-villain: the psychosis of lies

Breel’s chat, which he gave at [email protected], has been viewed over 1.5 million times. In it, the 19-year-old admits that, despite appearing to be having a wonderful time as a high school basketball player, he was secretly thinking about suicide. He wants people to speak out about depression because, “as much as I dislike some of the places that my depression has taken me down to, I’m thankful for it in a lot of ways.” Breel is asked about this bold comment on the Today Show by interviewer Willie Geist.
Breel says, “Life is about duality.” “There is joy; there is sorrow; there is light; there is darkness; there is hope; there is pain. And I believe that nothing in my life has ever taught me more about myself, others, or life than coping with depression.”
