I took another long break from blogging. Here is my explanation for why and why I don’t regret it.
“While mental health issues effect every demographic, I think it is time we admit that a huge part of the psychosis that exists in black urban areas is due to years of physical and mental abuse, oppression, and ultimately, depression of a very special kind.”
“The best part about the experience was that most outsiders are not invited to attend…The Navajo people have often been wounded by outsiders, so it is important to be very intentional about establishing positive relationships, built on genuine appreciation and respect.”
“I had flirted with the idea of giving up all the apps, but I thought about how much news and information I derive from Facebook and how much fun it is to keep up with friends and family, and then the FOMO set in.”
At the end of the last verse, he confesses that he’d rather lie awake in a bed full of sorrow. That sounds like depression to me, but I missed it, and I missed it for years and that’s one of the biggest problems with depression.
