I wish from the bottom of my heart this helps someone else as much as it helped me. At first it was hard to be happy but slowly, slowly it really began to work. I suppose what worked was taking control of my feelings and reminding myself I was in control, not my depression. This may not work for everyone. In fact, I can say for sure, different people need different things so this can't work for everyone. But hopefully it can work for some people who are falling. If it even helps one person, I will be both glad and grateful.
EDIT: This graphic has been edited because people feel that I am telling those who are chemically imbalanced to "get over it" by having the word depression there which I can assure them I am not because this graphic wasn't created with any other purpose than giving positivity. I am only trying to give a message of positive thinking to those who need it and are willing to use it. Sexual, physical, emotionally abused people who are trying hard to forget the damage like myself, someone having a bad day, someone who has recently been through a form of loss...basically anyone who is on the first very shaky steps of recovery and needs a positive message to keep them going.
