I wish Depression, Mental illness, wasn’t a taboo subject.

My parents and childhood trauma are to blame for my state of mind.

Everyday is a new day and i try to stay positive, but some days it does feel like i am going into battle, to keep the demons at bay.

Something i read or watch will trigger some memory and then i fight to put the thoughts of the past behind me and not let it affect me.

As you say Will you were Famous, for me i wear a mask of being Happy, confidant, bubbly and friendly and people are attracted to me because of my positivity. They get a shock when i do not smile everyday.

It would be nice, IF mental illness wasn't so taboo and accepted for what it is. A person battling with some internal issues everyday of their life.
