“I am bent, but not broken. I am scarred, but not disfigured. I am sad, but not hopeless. I am tired, but not powerless. I am angry, but not bitter. I am depressed, but not giving up.”
Giving up when you have a mental illness like depression sounds attractive in your darkest moments. Today we discuss all feelings and allowing them to be part of the conversation.
As an artist, you must understand and experience all emotions/feelings without judgement.
Oge Egbuonu discussed in the previous episode “I don’t label depression as a bad thing for me. For me, those are all moments of redirection.”
