9/642: If you could pass on one line of wisdom to your former self, what would it be?

This too shall pass.

When you’re deeply depressed, you can’t see the light. You can’t see anything other than darkness and despair ahead of you. Every day is a struggle, every second is agony. And there seems to be no end.

I’d want to tell my former self that this too shall pass, because I’m stronger than my illness. With therapy, medication, and the right support system, I can manage my disease and overcome it. Just take it one day at a time and you will be surprised when you finally feel something good again.
