The Darkness Will Not Win 12"x12" reverse applique and fused applique with free motion quilting Project Quilting Season 10 Challenge 1 'Hope springs eternal' The poem continues with "in the human breast" and many read it to mean man always finds a fresh source of optimism. I will mostly agree with that, but will ask that you look for that hope in those who are struggling. For some it takes hope to get out of bed some days, it takes hope to go outside and meet for coffee. If you haven't seen someone you know who struggles with depression for a while, responding "I'm so glad you came out for this" is a much better response than "well, look who decided to show up." Hope is still there, even if it is very small, it is worth acknowledging. Those of us who live with depression, and those of us who love those with depression, find the little sparks of hope and nurture them in each other. Reach out and hang on. It is hard, and you are worth it. GET HELP. Please. You are loved. Fight the stigma, find a counselor, call a friend. . . . #mentalhealth#pqseason10@persimondreams@quiltchicken#arttherapy#healingthroughart#depressionsucks#fuckthestigma
