Lights on the Path of Change

Photo taken by contributor Lakesh, a 36-year-old woman currently serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Her first experience with depression came through a relationship. It was filled with ups and downs, and both pockets of joy and memorable disappointments. The relationship has since ended but that experience has changed her perspective of mental illness. She will forever be grateful for the lessons they taught each other.

About this photo: “I’ve been embracing the cycle of change and it’s been a tough journey. There are days where reality is just too heavy to accept, while other days reality is my comfort blanket. This picture is a reminder regardless of where I am on the path of change there is always light. It may not be there when I want it, but it’s there when I need it.”

    love this pic. Writing and photography have changed me. It helps with my depression. Funny enough today I was sharing just about how cathartic blogging can be. It lifts me up into a high like no other. except maybe sex. lol
