While most people might have said that they "feel depressed" at some point in their life, the majority of people don't really know what it feels like for your mind and body to be taken over by depression. It is a mental illness that not only can make you feel sad, hopeless and isolated, but it is something that has physical effects and can strike at any time. For those who suffer from depression, it is a part of who they are every day, even on days when they are feeling their best. And while depression does cause suffering, it can also make you a more compassionate and resilient person. Depression builds character, as all scars and struggles do in life. This design, created by Spanish artist Encarna Dorado, is inspired by the feeling isolation, sadness and strength all at the same time.
