Through shared experience and my story of battling through years of suicidal depression, I highlight the definite, proven existence of reaching the other side of depression. I remind the audience that if they choose to fight through the darkness, they are rewarded with the light, whatever that may look like for them - and it looks different for everyone but there is one thing in common: you will look back and realize how strong you truly are. How powerful you are. How much change you are capable of accomplishing. And becoming aware of these things, is nothing short of life-changing.
