The pink week is over by now but Karin at Vacker&underbar brought some attention to the fact that October also means Depression Awareness Month which has the color green , which made her to decide to have a green week, hence United in Green. This is not the same thing as cancer where we can buy pins and donate money but I still think it's important to bring attention to it.
It's like a hidden disease filled with prejudices, one depression isn't similar to another, and they maybe don't need the same treatment. And there's one thing feeling blue, another to feel depressed due to a fail or loss and then there's clinical depression etc. And some people say that one should just cheer up but sometime it's not as simple as that, sometime it's about needing support from friends and family, someone that listen, and some time it's the opposite; to talk with someone outside the family and in some cases medicating.
With this post I'd like to point out that if you know someone that you know that is feeling down or depressed, give them a hug and/or some love. If you feel depressed, do something that makes you happy or in some situations the best thing is to search for help.. I know some people who have found joy in polish collecting and polish painting, it has become some sort of healing. How quirky it ever may be, what ever makes you happy is good.
This manicure made me happy when I wore it at least. I wore it during this summer and well, green is a great color. I'm also really found of these reversed glitter gradients. Hope you like it.
