Trying to break depression is much alike trying to fly. On your own, it is impossible. No matter how hard you try, you will always fall to the ground. But with help, it becomes a different story entirely.
With help, you can build a plane. Flying becomes more reachable. As you climb inside, you feel that rush of dread. Were you sabotaged? Then it all comes down to if you take that leap of faith.
Unfortunately, not many people take that leap. They climb down from the plane, back to their seclusion. If you had taken that leap, you might have flown. You might have been freed.
