Once upon a time there was a teenage girl who was bullied at school and had depression, a Councillor told that girl that writing her feelings and thoughts down would help her cope with the bullying and her suicidal thoughts. So that is what she did.

But one day that girl grew up and realized that what happened to her wasn’t her fault that there were many people out there just like her.

“Why not share my writing with all those other people?” she thought.

That’s exactly what she did when that girl turned into the woman that turned out to be me.

  1. Hey there lass. Ran into your poems on Writing.com, and followed you here, hope you don’t mind too much but this is good stuff. I’ve subscribed for updates. And your poem about the sea, priceless…

  2. I certainly know what it is like to suffer from depression and how much writing helps to relieve the anxiety and the sadness. Never stop writing! πŸ™‚

  3. I have always written…
    it is my truth as I see and feel it…
    when I write I work things out inside and outside…
    I am glad you stopped by today,
    I know I will enjoy following your thoughts you gracefully put into words…
    Thank you….
    Take Care…
    You Matter…

  4. Thanks for following me, check out my older work, it’s much more inspired. As a fellow basket-case hold in there and keep writing.

  5. Hi Lucy! Your poems are real nice. I have known feeling low and depressed too coz lotz of things keep going wrong in life. I too feel that writing is a v.positive way to channelize all that negative energy in a constructive way and get above it. Kudos to you for this creativity!

  6. The most creative people in the world are often the loneliest, some of the funniest people in the world are also the saddest or most depressed.
    Take heart from the fact that what you write is beautifully creative, please don’t be too happy for too long or we’ll lose that great talent.
    Thank you for being you.

  7. Lucy….thanx for all your likes on my photos. I have also battled the wet blanket of depression for much of my life. Always encouraging to find souls that are not afraid to admit it and to find ways to climb out of the pit……..shalom en theos….jim

  8. Lucy, my friend….your poems are beautiful just like you. I am sure you are a gem of a person.
    Keep up the good work! πŸ™‚

  9. I read your blog and sat for a while coffee in hand wanting to connect, but not sure how to or what to say except be well, stay healthy and so much more besides . . .


  10. Thank you for all the recent likes on my site. I don’t know much about poetry, so I don’t want to say anything either way. I do know about depression, so on that note, I will say, I wish you peace – reading the Art of Happiness from the Dalai Lama really made a difference in my life. It’s hard work to make changes, but pays off when things look really dark.

  11. Hi Lucy,
    You recently followed my blog, so I thought I’d stop by and say thank you and return the follow. I know all about living with depression and anxiety. Writing is what I do to manage it. Good luck with everything, and keep writing.

  12. I like your honesty in your about. And I have no formal writing skills. I also write from my experiences with depression and the pains of my life. If any of my poetry is encouraging you can follow blog. Again thank you for your honesty.

  13. i’ve always felt that writing is the best and least expensive form of therapy. it may not cure me but it will definitely release me while in the moment. Stay hopeful and positive. And take advantage of those “good” days πŸ™‚

  14. Dear Lucy,

    Thanks for visiting and following my blog. You have some very touching poems on here. I look forward to reading more in the future.

  15. Hi Lucy, I’m so lad to see you are going strong. Thank you so much for visiting Rivenrod and Liking my recent BlogPost ~ Pop Surrealism ~ it’s good to know there are fellow art lovers out there with such outrageously good taste!


  16. Hi! Lucy, First off – I’d like to say to you…that you and I have a lot in common. I, too – was bullied my whole life. Since a child all the way through and at the end of middle school. I’m lucky I survived high school and then after…I slowly got lots of flashbacks and was diagnosed by a psychologist as (PTSD).

    I feel what you felt…and I am here for you. You are not alone my friend. πŸ™‚
