Being depressed makes us vulnerable, especially in the area of romance. When we're depressed, we feel lonely, and it seems like we're the only ones feeling this way. It's like the world is moving around us and doesn't even know we exist. So when someone notices us and speaks words of kindness, we are drawn to them like moths to a flame.
It's a great thing to have friends who love us through our pain. However, it's not so great when those friends turn out to be people who are taking advantage of our vulnerability. That's why I'm wanting you to watch Kayleigh's story. She thought the person she had met online was her "soulmate" - someone who appreciated her for who she was. Unfortunately, she found out that he was someone dangerous.
Please, friends, don't let your vulnerability cloud your thinking. Stay safe out there.
