- There is power in positivity.
Having dealt with depression before, I knew that the mind is a tremendously powerful thing. I knew that I had two choices: I could either lament how I was not able to drive and how sometimes my brain would declare war and leave me incapacitated and broken; or I could look at the bright side and celebrate the fact that my body was still strong, and that I had a family who loved and took care of me and an incredible neurologist. Instead of dwelling on the difficulty, I decided to embrace the struggle. I mean what are we meant to do in the dark if not to shine so others can see?
