It’s so difficult to describe depression to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling— that really hollowed-out feeling.

I’d rather live failing than spend my days never trying. Failing doesn’t make me a failure. Failing means I am trying. It means I am stepping beyond my fears and striving for something more. Failing just means that next time I have learn from my mistakes and form them into my triumphs. So I’m going to try, and if and when I fail I’m going to take a deep breath, and then try again.
