Blogging Helps Depression

Image result for depression

Depression can often visit us like an unwanted guest from out of the blue. One day you’re feeling just fine and the next day – down in the dumps for no apparent reason. If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. I consider myself to be a very positive person for the most part but believe me, I have my days and moments of extreme sadness. Before I started blogging, I used a few different methods to avoid depression and they all worked very well but my favorite one was writing! Writing feels so good. It’s just a way to release your thoughts, emotions and pretty much be as expressive as you want! It’s like venting to a friend but instead you’re doing it on paper. But just like writing can help your depression, blogging can too! Let me tell you how.

  • SHARE YOUR STORY

Blogging gives you the opportunity to share your story with others. A lot of times, depression itself will have you feeling like you’re all alone but I promise you’re not. There are so many other people suffering from depression and on so many different levels. You never know how sharing your story will help others find healing in what they’re going through themselves. Remember .. other people are going to find healing your wounds. Your greatest life messages and your most effective ministry will come out of your deepest hurts. Never be ashamed of your story.

  • INSPIRE OTHERS

Blogging also gives you the opportunity to be an inspiration to so many other people all around this world. While sharing your story, you also get to inspire others with your uniqueness and authenticity. You don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect to make a difference in someone else’s life. You just have to care. Look for a way to lift someone up and if that’s all you do, then you’ve done enough. You’ll find that being able to help other people even when you can’t seem to help yourself actually does help you! it does something for you. It makes you feel better inside. Your greatest test is when you are able to help and bless someone else while you’re going through your own storm.

  • FREEDOM

You can blog about any topic your heart desires. You are your own boss! You have complete power over your blog. All of this freedom is a big confidence booster. You’re, also, gaining back your independence. Slowly, but surely, you’ll find it easier to manage your depression. With all the positives that blogging has to offer, I’m confident that you can overcome this! -Natalie

  • MONEY

Not only does blogging help free you from depression, it’s also a way to earn some extra cash!

  • YOU’LL SEE THAT YOU’RE NOT ALONE

As I mentioned earlier, depression sometimes will have you feeling like you are all alone but the more you blog, you’ll begin to see that there are many other people who blog about depression too. Connecting and interacting with other bloggers who are going through similar situations will help you to feel a little relief and happier as well!

Thanks for reading!! Your company here is always more than appreciated!!
