Keep up the hard work!

This spoke to me. I think, so often when we're depressed, we can see all acts of kindness and solidarity as being 'pity'. It's hard to realize that someone else can see your value when you can't.

Keep it up!


we can be sad, we can cry, we can take a break, but we must not stay down. Nice one. I have got another one for you. It goes "you never know how strong you are.. until being strong is the only choice you have. All the best!!


Congrats Brenda! I know the feeling all too well. I'm in a spot right now where I'm trying really hard to keep things from falling apart. It's good to know that we're not alone!


Dear Nicole, we are here for you and help you, try your best and if it doesn’t work, start again, I send you a huge hug 🤗


Thanks so much for your encouragement and inspiring story! Coding is my heart so I don't think I could stop if I wanted to. :)


That’s super awesome you’ve made that connection and are doing better now and have a fun new job. Life can be tough, but it’s people like them that keep us all in it together. Stoked for you! Hang in there, but best of luck on all the new and exciting things in your life! 🙌😁


This is very inspiring! It's hard to get out of the hole but with one small step at a time, it's completely possible! Congrats Brenda! 😊


That's great news, it sounds like things are falling into place for you. The job itself sounds very fulfilling, as you are learning and helping people at the same time :) I'm glad you're back on it!
