Fine Day, Sunday

My, am I going to start this post? Let's about I begin with an explanation for the lack of activity here on the blog? Okay. After coming back from Bicol two weeks ago, I started getting anxious and extremely dejected again. Truth is, I have been feeling down in the dumps for what seemed like an eternity due to a lot of things. It was a sadness so strong and so deep it felt like I was being engulfed by it. Anyway, to cut the long story short, depression has overcome me and I'm trying to make myself feel better. Bit of a shocker, eh? I really tried not to talk about it here because I didn't want to publish emo-ish posts. But yeah. I am currently on leave and undergoing therapy. My family, especially my mom has been nothing but very supportive of me these past couple of days. I can't believe I forgot, even for just one second, that my family is the most precious blessing that I have received from God. They took me shopping (because retail therapy is the best therapy there is! Haha!) and today we went to Trinoma for a family bonding. We watched Breaking Dawn (and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I totally liked it), had lunch at Italianis, went book-browsing at NBS, then accompanied the kids at Timezone. Good food, good company, good books. It was my ideal date. Plus, the mall with its bright, colorful Christmas decors was a sight to be seen that it instantly put me in a happier disposition. I'm glad I didn't hole up again inside the house. Today's the third time I went out and the first time I attempted to look decent (so as to feel a bit merry) after coming back from the province. Hey, I looked like crap the whole week so might as well clean up today right? I hope I don't look too awful in these pictures. I hope you're all having a much better week! :)

PS. To compensate for this sad post, I am going to bombard you with happy photos from today! :)

  6. Oh my gosh Kath!!! yes i remember you syempre naman! :)) Oh my golly hala namiss ko tuloy bigla yung HS times natin nila Delwin! Anyway, thank you sooo much! :)

  7. Jonessa, you are much to strong and brave to share what you are going through in your blog. I admire you for that and those things will just pass. It's not permanent and thank goodness for good food and family. :)

  8. Hi Chyrel. Thank you! I truly am touched by all of your comments. It's hard to talk about it here without being judged. But I thought, those people who might be going through the same thing must know that being depressed isn't such a shameful thing. I wanted them to know that we can fight it by therapy and of course, accepting the fact they have it in the first place. I do hope they read it and know that they aren't alone. :)

  9. hi jonessa! I hope you are feeling better by now :) You are not alone, I myself cant even believe that im slowly recovering from this bitter depression. you can do it, love. pray and everything will be better. have faith..
