Just keep swimming

This weekend has been particularly difficult for me. I have a history of depression and anxiety, and though I try very hard to conquer it, I can’t quite overcome it, as it keeps coming back.


Thanks to a great boss, I’ve been given the opportunity to train a few times a week to get in shape, as I have noticed that it makes me feel better. And it really has helped! But no matter how many sunny days you have, there’ll always be a rainy day. But then again, I strongly suspect that this is something that I have to learn to deal with. Some things just stick with you for life. I’ve always been a very melancholic person, and my depression and anxiety have become a part of who I am.

I’ll keep fighting this endless battle, and I very much appreciate the support I get from both my colleagues and my wonderful wife. So if you’re reading this, thank you. :)

When the going gets tough, I always get back to what Dory says in the movie “Finding Nemo”:

Just keep swimming
Just keep swimming
Just keep swimming swimming swimming
What do we do we swim, swim, swim
OH HO HO How I love to swim
When you WAAAAAANNTTT to swim you want to swim

You should try it, it helps!
