For those of you who have Netflix, they added a new comedy special by Neal Brennan called "3 Mics." It is very good for a laugh, but also, one line he said really resonated with me. He talked about dealing with depression and trying different treatments. He said that having depression feels like you are wearing a weighted vest.
That line really resonated with me. I could almost picture the vest and what my weights would be made of: self doubt, sadness, hopelessness. Depression is so much more than feeling sad. It can come in many forms.
Brennan went on to talk about how he tried many different types of treatment for his depression.
I applaud Brennan for speaking out about his struggles. Talking about the struggle spreads awareness and fights the stigma. Any celebrity using their platform for good is a great thing. If you have Netflix, check out the whole special because it's hilarious.
