Dealing with depression is tough. It’s even tougher when you feel like you have no one to talk about it with. Depression makes you want to isolate yourself from everyone. There is a feeling of sadness, rage, and a head full of negative thoughts that linger inside of you. Lying in bed all day and night starts to be a regular routine. Please do not feel ashamed that you go through depression.
Just know that you’re not going through it alone. I go through depression myself. When I’m feeling this way I don’t want to be bothered at all. I have to lay in bed and cry things out. Then I have to comfort myself to reassure myself that I will get better. Since I can’t talk to anyone that understands what’s going on. I had to learn how to make myself feel better.
Some of you might be thinking why don’t you get out the house to do something to make yourself feel better. From my experience that only helps for a short while. When I get back home I’ll be attacked by my depression again. This is why I have to cope with my depression either through my writing or trying to reverse my negative thoughts with positive ones.
This article is a dedication to anyone that goes through depression like me and doesn’t feel like anyone understands you. I will be that person you can vent/talk to about how you’re feeling. That’s if you feel comfortable with that. Depression is serious. We all have to find ways to overcome it. Everyone deals with depression different so don’t worry. Sharing your experiences can help others too!
