A couple of years ago, I began the new year at an emotional rock bottom. The prior several months I spent struggling a worsening depression left me at a point to where I didn't want to go on anymore. I was hopelessly unable to look past the constant destructive and self-loathing thoughts I had in my head.
So I created a comic strip out of desperation. It allowed me to rethink of all the negative thoughts stuck in my head as fodder for jokes. This comic strip gave me a more productive outlet for my negative head space and something to actually look forward to from day to day.
