Depression Quotes, Sayings about being depressed
Behind my smile is a hurting heart, behind my laugh I’m falling apart. Look closely at me and you will see, the girl I am, it isn’t me…
People think depression is sadness. People think depression is crying. People think depression is dressing in black. But people are wrong. Depression is the constant feeling of being numb. Being numb to emotions, being numb to lie. You wake up in the morning just to go back to bed again. Days aren’t really days; they are just annoying obstacles that need to be faced. And how do you face them? Through medication, through drinking, through smoking, through drugs, through cutting. When you’re depressed, you grasp on to anything that can get through the day. That’s what depression is, not sadness or tears, it’s the overwhelming sense of numbness and the desire for anything that can help you make it from one day to the next.
I’m tired of trying, sick of crying, I know I’ve been smiling, but inside I’m dying.
I’m so broken that I can feel it. I mean, physically feel it. This is so much more than being sad now. This is affecting my whole body.
Depression is like drowning. Except you can see everyone else around you breathing.
How did I go from that little 5 year old, always happy & always laughing, to…this?
Depression is darkness filling your heart, surrounding your soul.
Everything takes so much energy.
People around you don’t understand, you’re doing the best you can
Responsibilities overwhelm, expectations you can’t meet weigh heavily,
Sorrow fills you until there is no room for anything else.
Strength to fight, to find joy and love, slowly seeps from your soul.
Endless days without hope loom before you, enveloping you in the darkness.
Depression is hard to explain. But I’ll try anyway. You see. It’s like a disease. It tears you a part. The activities you loved doing like video games, sports, watch youtubers, designing things, draw. It doesn’t matter. You can’t find any joy in it anymore. You don’t smile much because there isn’t a reason to you think. It doesn’t matter how good you have it. Depression makes everything worthless and hopeless. It can make you do many things. Some people are cured from the disease, to others it can be lethal. It’s sad isn’t it?
Words unspoken. Let me tell you this: my life hasn’t been easy, no life is. I was bullied when I was younger, told I wasn’t going to succeed in life by teachers, became the thing I hated most, a bully.
I’ve been struggling with depression since I was six. Attempted suicide three times. Twice by cutting my wrist but my sister was there to stop me. The third time I laid on a busy street waiting to get ran over but when it almost happen when I thought my suffering was going to end, my two best friends came in and saved me. Made me promise to never do that again. I was an angry child and took it out on my friends.
I hated coming home because my parents were always arguing. Yelling nonsense, they finally got a divorce. But I felt betrayed, I felt abandoned, I felt lonely. Every relationship I ever had was a failure because I couldn’t commit. I felt that people were just going to end up leaving me as my father did to me. It wasn’t until later on when I had gone back to my faith in God that things got better. Not saying I am happy but I do have my moments. (Thank you for reading).
Im hurt, and I’m heartbroken, and I’m sad, and I’m depressed, and ive been crying, but I dont wanna let it ruin my life.
Depression on my left, Loneliness on my right. They don’t need to show me thier badges. I know these guys very well.
– Elizabeth Gilbert
Depression cannot be explained, it’s impossible, even if two people with depression come together to talk about it. No one knows how to explain it properly but, if you get it you’ll know what it is straight away, it changes your whole perspective on life & in a way in the long run depression can sometimes be a good thing.
