I was a sinking ship slowly being swallowed by the sea. I was a dying rose. I was a neverending waterfall of tears. I was a bird with broken wings who dreamed of flying. But most of all, I was a broken heart still trying to beat. Today, I am a mirror, with a beautiful, intelligent girl in my reflection. I am a strong ship, steady in the midst of brutal waves. I am a budding rose. I am a neverending well of courage. I am a bird soaring high up in the sky towards my dreams. But most of all, I am a huge heart filled with love. email@example.com 6 years ago I used to struggle with depression really bad for many years. Over time, I have learned how to cope with my depression when it flares up. But the most important thing I have learned is that my depression does not define who I am.
