This touching short film by Emily Johnstone captures the dark and loneliness of depression and the simple metaphor of a personal gesture which can lead us back to recovery again.
Sometimes a dark period of depression, with all the lengths we take to recover, can only be endured until an inner bloom finally appears.
Hold onto that light. If you or anyone you know is struggling with depression, reach out to a therapist or other professional. Don’t be afraid to talk about your feelings, no matter how futile, and talk to someone if you are feeling suicidal.
