Before the Journey

Photo taken by contributor Jim, a man from the SouthWest of Texas who has struggled with depression for much of his life.

About this photo: “The way up may be pretty and appear safe, but you still have to climb up the steps. It is nice to have a safe and comfortable place to gather yourself until you are ready for the journey.

    I love this photo! It expresses his depression via the man on the bench yet the rest of the word is bright and cheery.

    This photo is awesome. There really isn’t anything else I can say to do it justice.
