It’s hard to be happy and grateful when you have Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). In order to feel grateful and happy with MDD, the best way to remind yourself of reasons to continue going and give you motivation is to write it down.

So, here is what I’m grateful and thankful for:

  • I’m grateful to have two parents who love me, even though they don’t always understand me.
  • I’m grateful to have help in my studies.
  • I’m grateful for having the opportunity to express myself whether through art or written content.
  • I’m grateful to have a partner who loves me for me and doesn’t want me to change.
  • I’m grateful for the doctors who have helped me find out what is wrong with me.
  • I’m grateful to the country I live in where Gluten free and Dairy free products are somewhat readily available to buy.
  • I’m grateful that it’s legal in my country to marry whom I choose.
  • I’m grateful that there are facilities in my country to help people like myself.
  • I’m grateful that I was able to get help for my mental health and find working coping mechanisms rather than what I used to do.
  • I’m grateful that I have a warm house to live in.
  • I’m grateful that I can have three meals a day.
  • I’m grateful that I have clean drinking water.
  • I’m grateful that I can walk outside during the day due to the lack of sunlight in my country.
  • I’m grateful that I have friends who support me.
  • I’m grateful that I have had 134k reads on one of my books.
  • I’m grateful I have been able to help as many people as I have because my partner stopped my suicide attempt on 16th September 2014.
