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.

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).

Was it you, or him, chose life or death, love or hate…It’s never the same.
