17 People Who Beat Depression Spilled Their Guts And It’s Inspiring AF

 

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, depression is “A state of feeling sad: a serious medical condition in which a person feels very sad, hopeless, and unimportant and often is unable to live in a normal way.” Anyone who has ever suffered from depression will tell you that doesn’t even begin to describe what it actually feels like, because it’s indescribable. It’s complete emptiness. A black prison of a hole, like a Harry Potter Dementor in place of your soul. But despite all that, the human spirit is stronger. These 17 people describe their experiences overcoming the most hopeless obstacle a person can.
