Depression Quotes, Sayings about being depressed

Depression is definitely a touchy subject unless you have it. The feeling of always being numb, heartless, broken, and most of the time just feeling absolutely useless can break you down to nothing but a barely breathing soul. That is whatever soul you have left. Depression is a disease. It can often spread like wildfire. Just keep a true smile on your face, and pray to God you don’t get it too.
I can’t even whisper the “D” word let alone explain how badly I suffer.

You see me smile, but you can’t see me dying.

Depression is indescribable but I will try to explain it in my case. I feel like I’m on fire and drowning at the same time. I can’t breathe. I can’t to normal things and enjoy them. And when I’m happy I don’t feel comfortable, because I’m not used to it. Depression even feels good sometimes. I don’t know if the person I see in the mirror is me, but its the only person I have.
Do you know when someone is too far gone?
When you find them alone and their arms are bleeding
Their eyes emotionless
And when you yell their name to save them
They don’t care.

Depression is a whole worse than some think. It is harder and harder to keep fighting everyday 24×7. It really is very real! Plus I’m I very grateful to have a very sweet and good young man that’s my life line and if he moves any farther away then I don’t know if if I could handle it!!! But he has to do what’s best for him not me but I’ll never forget this sweet and dear friend who has helped more than he will ever know!!!you know who are and that’s why I love you and your friendship is so very important to me+++.
Depression will never go away, even when you think it’s gone it comes right back. You’ll have the best day of your life and then depression comes back and you’ll never be happy!! I don’t want to keep crying myself to sleep I want to be happy but depression will never let you!
Depression is feeling numb inside. You literally can’t feel anything. Your soul is crying. It feels like knives are constantly stabbing your soul. You can’t find joy in anything and you just lay on your bed thinking about ways to end your life. You go to bed, hoping that the pain goes away and then waking up with the same pain for the whole day ahead. You’re screaming that people care about you but in reality you don’t talk to anyone.
Depression is like feeling numb all the time. You’re smiling but it cannot hide the pain. Your whole body feels like a zombie. Too tired but you’re doing your best to survive. It feels like you’re stopping the rain from falling. You want to be dead but afraid to die. Having a lots of hopes and thinking you’re still hopeless.
Being loved but still feels like being alone. A lots of people you know can help you but you don’t have the courage to ask them because you feel like they don’t understand you. It’s like being happy then being sad at the same time.
You can’t understand yourself. You just want to escape from that pain you don’t even know where it from. It’s like everyday is a new life and a new battle you need to survive. A lot of things you want to say but you can’t. It’s like fighting yourself.
My depression hurts, it hurts physically and mentally. I don’t tell anyone this, I don’t tell them how I feel or what I want, because I know how they will react. They will feel bad, or upset, they will say “I’m sorry” or “It’s okay”, and I done want that. I don’t want them to care, but at the same time I do. I don’t want them to feel bad because it just makes me feel worse that they are thinking about my well being instead of their own.
I feel guilty about it. And it hurts everywhere, not just my chest, but my stomach, legs, arms, literally everything is in pain. I don’t remember when it started or when it will end but it has stopped me from doing many things. Being around my family or hanging out with my friends.
I don’t like talking about it, in fact I never have until this. I always push my feelings down until I’m alone, where I can feel free to let the out. I used to burn myself, every single night. But I stopped because my friend didn’t want me to. I used to smoke, but I stopped cause my family wanted me to. I still drink though. It’s all I have left that keeps me distracted from what I’m feeling. It numbs it in a sense.
Please, if you are reading this, don’t feel bad, you don’t need to. I’m just venting, I suppose I am fine though, so please, just read it, hear my story. Help people who actually need it. I promise I’m fine.
Depression is horrible. Every night you go to sleep, you wish that you never wake up. But when you do wake up, you are disappointed because you know that you just have to experience the horrid and intense feeling of sadness, worthlessness, self-consciousness and hopelessness all over again. It’s like you’re stuck in a nightmare that you can’t wake up from. Nobody knows what a depressed person is going through unless they have experienced such a deep depression themselves. It’s not fun to have it at all. People think your depression can be cured by therapy and medication, but guess what. When you’re depression is as bad as mine, that stuff doesn’t work. And when the time is near, one will do anything to free himself from being stuck in such a position.
Depression is like holding a gun and pointing it at your own head, and everyday is a struggle to not pull the damn trigger.
Depression does not kill you instantly, it kills you slowly.
The happiest people usually have the saddest past.
“I’m fine” is always better than answering a hundreds of question. It is easier than explaining and remembering things you have been trying to forget.
Never look at yourself in the mirror while crying. This will cause self-pity and will make situation worse.
I’m always depressed. Coming home from school not wanting to do anything. Eating less, talking less. I went from a happy 5 years old to a teenager who doesn’t care if shes dead or not. My dad died when I was 5. After he died I faked smiles & laughs.
Depression is like sinking. Everyone around you is still breathing while you’re struggling. Only few will say something & the other half will walk away.
