I love good depression quotes. I find them very inspirational. And over time I’ve collected quite a few.
They remind me that other people struggle with depression as well. So I’m not alone. It’s hard to express what depression actually feels like. Quotes sum it up perfectly.
Quotes can also give you a different perspective. I find that sometimes it really helps to look at things from a slightly different angle.
It’s my pleasure to share my collection of quotes with you. They are drawn from a wide range of famous people, past and present. They will give you many different perspectives.
I’m sure their words will resonate with you. They may even inspire you. And they will show you that you’re not alone.
So, without further ado . . .
