So today, January 15th, is what is officially known as Blue Monday – believed to be the most depressing day of the year. However, this can sometimes be used by the marketing bigwigs in the travel or sales industry to get a bit of money in the till. However, it also allows charities such as Mental Health UK to raise awareness for people who live with depression every day of the year. Becky and I have decided to do our bit by recommending some books that could benefit you, not just today, but any day when you’re feeling a bit shitty.
“Depression is a dark cloud passing across the sky, but – if that is the metaphor – you are the sky. You were there before it. And a cloud can’t exist without the sky, but the sky can exist without the cloud.”
