Waiting

image1

Photo taken by contributor Morgan, a 21-year-old woman living in California. Morgan has suffered from bipolar depression and anxiety for many years. She experienced her first anxiety attack at the age of 10, and it has been a battle ever since. Her mental health improved greatly after the birth of her daughter, when she felt true unconditional love and acceptance from someone. Morgan thinks very passionately about photography. It’s so much more than just taking pictures to her, it’s a coping mechanism

About this photo: “I took this photo while waiting to watch fireworks with my daughter on the Fourth of July. The sun is a beautiful thing and it seems to go so quickly.”

    Very beautiful and moving to read. I also suffer from similar conditions and having loved ones and art has definitely helped me through my depression. -DV
