Depression is not easy thing to deal with, but sometimes you can take your weakness and turn it into something beautiful.

That's exactly what polish artist Dawid Planeta did - to help himself he created an imaginary world where a small man is traveling through long forgotten jungle meeting his weaknesses and fears presented as giant animals with glowing eyes. The vision created by the artist is dark, mysterious, and very beautiful.

“One challenge at a time, I try to turn into the face of fear and tell it “you are not my master, you are the product of my self and I am your master.” I look into the monster’s eyes until it disappears. Then I am free.” ― Rohvannyn Shaw

Peace brother, from a fellow cronic depressed person. My battle has finally taken to peace time. My horror is; one day I feel courageous fearless and free. The very next day I am back to dieing inside. Thanking my maker I no longer own a gun.

I like this one. In my interpretation this portrays the calmness and contentment of solidarity. Just having your own little island in the sky to yourself. The breeze through your hair and the scent of wild flowers upon a gentle fog. All you need now are a couple cushions, bucket of food and water, a nice sketch pad and pencils or reading book. I wouldn't mind my own sky island.

Ruellen, it is very telling that this art work is gray. Years ago, I went through a divorce & I never saw color. It was a situational depression & only lasted about 6 months, but, it was excruciatingly painful, ,so I have some personal experience . My life has been , &, still is good even though I'm taking care of a dying husband. Clinical depression has chemical changes in the brain. That's why meds help. Barbaric as it was, when I was in nursing school , I watched electric shock treatments of patients in a hospital setting. They lost memory , & sometimes their depression. Now, mental health tx is more humane.

What if one cannot warm himself? I sit by a fire and cannot help but burn myself. It's a beautiful destructive flower.
