How I Beat Depression When It Shows Its Ugly Face

My head is trying to squeeze through a narrow space, or at least that’s what the looming depression feels like it as I sip my coffee. I close my eyes and see it coming at me like a slow-moving train.

The most important thing to remember in all of this is that I practice self-love.

I must care for myself deeply with tasty creamers in my coffee, bubble baths, an hour of Netflix after my work is done, calls to friends, maybe even get a massage.
