When nobody understands us and what we are going through we often times turn to depression music or blogs about depression and anxiety. These are the two supportive things that help us get through the hard times in our lives.
Sometimes, we aren’t even depressed we are just feeling sad, and we want somebody to share our feelings in a way that we can relate to. Especially now, when the autumn sadness punches you right in the face, it’s good to have some emotionally supportive and strong read that makes you feel better.
