Depression Quote...

Yesterday I went to my local public library for study. Before I left I checked out the shelves where the mental health books were kept. I checked out a book titled, Depression: Your Questions Answered by Romeo Vitelli. In it I found this quote:

What are your thoughts (if any) on this quote? What would you add/omit from it if not complete in what the author is attempting to convey?

...a phrase to keep in mind. It's AWESOME!

I like it! The beauty of the hidden sky can only be seen in the darkness. Thanks, that’s something to think about.

The first quote is relatable, but it is not entirely true. It can feel true, but: you can escape it/you can heal from it, and, it is not a part of who we are, it is an illness.

Didnt like or agree, "cant ever escape", dont feel/think that at all.

And didnt like the last part "in your bones, in your blood", so corny. Too dark for the sake of nothing.

I think depression can definitely feel like that, but I don't like the can't escape mentality. I feel like my depression is a cape I wear... sometimes it's helpful, provides clarity; sometimes it's oppressive. But I'm not going to wear it forever.
