    "Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life;
    not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens."

"Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow."

"I have been through a lot and have suffered a great deal. But I have had lots of happy moments, as well. Every moment one lives is different from the other. The good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love, and happiness are all interwoven into one single, indescribable whole that is called life. You cannot separate the good from the bad. And perhaps there is no need to do so, either."

~ Jackie Kennedy

...everything holds
us, and everything confirms
our courage, and if you wanted
to drown you could,
but you don’t
because finally
after all this struggle
and all these years
you simply don’t want to
any more
you’ve simply had enough
of drowning
and you want to live and you
want to love and you will...

~ David Whyte, “The Truelove”

“Respair”, Dent explains, means “fresh hope; a recovery from despair”. To her mind, the English language has something of a pessimistic bent. It tends to retain the negativity of various words, but not their more positive counterparts. For instance, we say “unkempt”, but have forgotten that “kempt” was once an adjective too.

"Remember, you are still married and at one time he listened to you. Don’t be afraid to make this a fight…this is no time to stand on ceremony. Make a doctor’s appointment, go out to dinner afterwards, be romantic, or bribe him; whatever it takes."

"You aren’t your mental illnesses, you aren’t your mistakes. You aren’t your self-harm, you aren’t your anger, you aren’t your pain, you aren’t your past, and you aren’t what other people say about you. You are what you choose to be. And I urge everyone with a mental illness to choose life and to get as much help from as many sources as they need. People with cancers aren’t burdens, so why should you be considered one."

TMS Therapy: Treatments, Benefits, Safety, A Beginner’s Guide | U.S. News


It’s not too soon to consider TMS if you’re suffering from depression without relief, McGirr says. “This is something that should be on the table as soon as any first-line intervention – any medication trials have failed or any psychotherapy has failed – and somebody is having continuing depression and they have not responded to some of our best treatments,” he says. “(TMS) is something that should be in the discussion early.”

In the United States and Canada, a wellness check (also known as a welfare check as well as a Safe and Well check) is an in-person visit from one or more law enforcement officers, especially in response to a request from a friend or family member who is concerned about the person's mental health.
