Sorry a little late on my black history quotes, but I’m getting it in before bed!!! Since being diagnosed with depression,I have let so many people define me and it hurts me to my core. I never let anyone defined me in my past before, when they called me hot pants, I didn’t let that define me, when they said I would never amount to anything, I didn’t let that define me. People thought of me as some stupid slut, who ran around with older men, I didn’t let that define me. So why now? Why have I let so many people define me and my illness? This has also become a challenge, because I know that I’m not depression and depression isn’t me! It’s not who I want to be, but that’s how it is at the moment. Just like my past I’ll overcome this illness too! Soon only I will define me, not you!!! What a great quote!!!
