Depression IS A Thing

No one should suffer in silence. No one should feel that they have to. In my faith, one of the most powerful lies is that “whatever bad thing you’re going through is exclusive to you. You’re the only one dealing with that problem, with those thoughts. Everyone else is shiny and happy, so you must be the weird one. The wrong one.”
But nothing has come upon you which isn’t common to humanity. (1 Cor 10:13, my paraphrase)
In other words, NONE OF US ARE ALONE. We’re all going through something. We’ve all needed help at one point or another, and we all will again. There’s no shame in that, regardless of what our culture says.
