“Depression is okay. We’re people. We’re people and we struggle, and we suffer and we bleed and we cry. And if you think that true strength means never showing any weakness, then I am here to tell you ‘you’re wrong’. You’re wrong, because it’s the opposite. We’re people and we have problems. We’re not perfect and that’s okay. So, we need to stop the ignorance , stop the intolerance, stop the stigma, and stop the silence. We need to take away the taboos, take a look at the truth and start talking. Because the only way, we’re gonna beat the problem that people are battling alone, is by standing strong together. By standing strong together. And I believe that we can.”
