It's a choice, to get out of bed every morning, to be happy, to be healthy, to appreciate life. I still go through bouts of anxiety and depression sometimes, and I make the choice to be happy every single day, to enjoy my family, my friends, my life. The thing with anxiety and depression is that if you allow it to get a grip on you, it'll bring you further and further down. So, God willing, I will be happy every single day of my life. I can't 'depend' on anyone to make me happy. My happiness is my own responsibility.
I know some people will think "What is she going on about?". Well, only people who have gone through anxiety and depression will understand how difficult it is to function without being fearful and/or unhappy. I see it as a period of change in my life, a signal that my life can't go on the way it has. It's time to make positive changes, it's not easy but, this too shall pass, and I will overcome my anxiety and depression.
