home keeps me alive. it should
The idea of home is that it keeps us alive, but here’s where it gets interesting… I find that when I visit my parents I get very emotional. Usually the visit is about one thing or another. The last visit my mom and dad had was about 3 months ago, when I was about to give up on life. This time is different because I’ve come back and I’ve found my place again.
Home keeps us alive isn’t the most exciting idea on the planet but it is a nice place to live. The problem is that most of us are so busy doing everything that it becomes a bit depressing. And then there’s the fact that most of us are trying to keep our jobs, stay married, and keep our families happy so we can keep our homes. The last thing you need when you’re in life is depression.
Depression is simply not a part of life. It is not something you look forward to. It is not something you like to take a day off from. It is not something you enjoy. And if you are depressed, you can’t get out of bed.
