Video Description

"READ FOR MORE INFO: This video contains pretty heavy topics and may be upsetting / triggering to watch. Depression is also something that may need to be treated with medicine / a medical professional, I would advise anyone struggling with it to seek out help and to talk about what you're going through!

""My Depression Story"" is not something I ever thought I would film, and this topic is not something I ever thought I would talk about. I have literally never discussed some of the things that I discuss in today's video, so please keep that in mind while you're watching / commenting. I'm sharing very personal things that even my family has never heard before.

At first, I didn't want to film this video because this is SO far from me- I don't even feel like this is the same life. I look back on this and it feels like two different people, two different stories. It doesn't actually feel like this is my story. But that's exactly why I had to film it- it is AMAZING that I am such a different person today, and that is only by the grace of God. I AM new, I am NOT broken, and I am free to tell you everything that I experienced because it doesn't define me.

At first I thought ""I don't want people to know that about me, because that's not me."" but actually, that IS me. We are all broken people. It's a gift from God that I can sit here and say that I am a new person. It's incredible that not only did God give ME life- but He turned all of the negative experiences IN my life into something beautiful.

I'm not crying in this video because any of these thoughts still affect me- I'm crying because these are such sad things to say and my heart hurts for anyone who is currently experiencing them.

I didn't want to film this video to share these experiences for myself [I have never shared these thoughts or times]. I''m sharing them because this was heavy on my heart that even though I am completely free of this- there are many people who are still hurting. If you're feeling broken or if you feel like your life doesn't have value- let me be the one to tell you how important you are. You are so loved, and Jesus can transform your life just like He did mine.

"If you are depressed, You are living in the past. If you are anxious, You are living in the future. If you are at peace, You are living in the present."
