Favorite quotes- 

I had to stop hiding. I had to stop running. I was always wanting to be the impressive person in the room. Like not even in a prideful way, just I think I felt so insecure that I thought if I can just be impressive with the things that I do then maybe people will love me.

I had to pull myself out of the self-obsession that comes with depression and start showing up for other people no matter the cost.

God is bigger. God had a bigger plan. He had a bigger purpose for my life. And I look at it as a testimony to me that the darkness didn’t win. The darkness didn’t get to have me.

It is okay to get help and to talk to a professional and there is no shame in that.

You having depression is not a result of you not praying enough. Never think that you having depression is a result of not praying enough or not reading the Bible enough.

Just because you are in the pit, just because you are going through something that you may even feel like there might not be a way out of it but that’s not where the story ends!” (20:24)
