Let's be there for each other

Let's start talking about these things, even if it seems negative or inappropriate.  Let's stop "minding our own business" and "giving him/her their space", and start being there for each other.  Really being there.  Let's start sitting with each other in our pain, and not just celebrating together during the good times.  If you know someone who is hurting, go to them.  Be with them.  Do whatever you can.  If you have a friend who seems out of sorts lately, find out why.  Educate yourself about depression, what it is and isn't.  Even the strongest among us have moments where they need someone to be there for them.  Be that someone.  Let's start talking about depression and mental illness without shame or judgment.  Maybe we can save a life.
