I share this because it means so much to me. I felt so happytoday, perhaps the first time in a very long time creating something after all those years of never believing I had any ability nor anything of any worth to say.
1.the complete loss or absence of hope.”a voice full of self-hatred and despair”
If you know my story, you will understand the significance of the semicolon as a symbol of hope for people with mental illness. … A semicolon represents a sentence the author could have ended, but chose not to. The sentence is your life and the author is you.
The trilogy depicts a spiralling decline and the onset of depression. Shutting the world off the only light cracking through closed blinds, living in avoidance. An ever growing and desperate sense of loss of hope and despair etched in the face as finally that little flicker of faith snubs out and then all of a sudden, there was nothing….
But I am here to say there is hope, despite the accuser telling you otherwise! Pause, take a deep breath and seek help. Reach out talk and express how you feel. There is help available out there and although you can’t see it or feel it, you are loved and valued and you will get through it.
