Becoming the Nothingness

About this photo: I have suffered from depression for too many years to count. Every time I think it is lifting it comes back again and takes over. Sometimes I feel like I am losing myself to the depression, whatever or whoever that self may be. Like it is taking over my whole body and life, not just my mind. I feel like I am disappearing, and soon will be nothingness. For the few people left in my life I must try to hold on to the bits that are left, I just hope I can find the strength.

    Great photograph. Hang in. Time itself creates movement, evolution. Things will change. Hang in.

    Bits are bits, and are meant to be held onto. May you gain strength with each day!
