The last few months have been hard for me. I’ve had some issues with depression and paranoia. Living with schizophrenia is a rollercoaster and even little blips can turn into crises.
This depression though, has had me feeling a deep sense of loneliness, the paranoia makes me feel ostracized from the world and it’s really hard to feel like no matter where you go, you’ll never fit in.
This was weighing on me the other day until something happened that struck me and it put a long overdue smile on my face that was sorely needed.
It wasn’t anything big, it was just some minor little show of gratitude that reinforced the idea to me that people can be kind to each other.
