And in my own battle, I saw how it was difficult for others to believe I was struggling with depression because I apparently didn’t look it. Which begs the question, “Can you just listen to what someone is saying and stop projecting your own ideas then?” I may not look it but if I tell you I’m struggling, work with that. May we lead with empathy and kindness.
