Over the past few years I was constantly going in and out of what I would consider bouts of minor depression. Then I slowly started to realise that I was finding life almost pointless, finding everything mediocre and nothing enjoyable. I realised this was because I kept seeing the bad in life and took everything for granted. This year I have finally gone without any of this so-called ‘depression’, I looked at my life more closely and reminded myself that I am lucky to be who I am today. I was born with a heart condition and was unlikely to have survived, even if I survived I should have been small and had heart trouble. However here I am today, definitely not small and without any heart trouble. I realised how lucky I am to be alive and that every day is a gift. I don’t have everything I could wish for but I’m lucky to have what I do have. I constantly remind myself of this and for this reason I have decided to make the most of every day and try to see the good in everything.
