Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about the “image” I put out on social media. I post happy things about happy times. Yet there is part of me that has started to believe that I didn’t have a “right” to post about good things because I have PPD. Is a depressed person allowed to appear happy?
Of course they are. I’ve decided that it is good to document and celebrate the good and happy times. Just because I am experiencing altered moods sometimes does not mean that I can’t savour and enjoy things in life that do bring me joy and happiness. And perhaps doing more of that will help me on my road to recovery.
I am a sentimental person. Remembering the details about life’s great moments means a lot to me. I will continue to celebrate good things. I will fight to remember that life is more beautiful than it is ugly.
Here are my best moments from March.
