Well hello, Mr. Unicorn. Depression Lies

Today, I consider a lie — not my own, but one of Depression’s many deceptions.

Minna, perhaps it’s time for you to fade back into the background of life. Maybe it’s time you stopped writing, stopped sharing the shattering moments, stop exposing the truth, and go back to pretending that everything is sunshine and unicorns.

You’re wasting your time and everyone else’s time too. No one really wants to hear your truth or the truth about darkness. Your words annoy your readers, they would rather read about that magical elusive unicorn that prances around the fairy tale forest just wanting to play.

Well hello Mr unicorn, we have something in common, you know.
