It's easy to get lost in our social media identity. People don't know we're suffering from debilitating depression, until it's too late. Instead of hiding in silence, I opened up. It was the best thing I could have done for me (and my circle of peers). 

By sharing that my online persona was completely different than what I was experiencing offline, I gave myself a chance to rediscover who I was and to become more authentic than ever before.
