Depression Quotes, Sayings about being depressed - Page 2
I’m just learning how to smile, and that’s not easy to do.
Almost everyone is overconfident- – except the people who are depressed, and they tend to be realists.
– Joseph T. Hallinan
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).
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 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.
Depression: Knowing when you gave your all for that person and all you can do is think of the ‘wonderful’ moments spent forgetting the hard times and forgiving the ones who REALLY broke your heart, embracing the ones who try to fix it, and finding the one who wants to heal it…but as life goes on you find it harder to forgive than forget, hold on than to let go, love what you hated and hate what you loved…and all you think about is what went wrong? Was it you, or him, chose life or death, love or hate…It’s never the same.
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?
Cause I swear that I’m dying, slowly but its happening.
– Conor Oberst

Depression sneaks up when I think I’m flying high and clips my wing, not both though, because I refuse to let it take over every part of me. I am up again and enjoying the beauty and pleasure that surrounds me.
I say there’re no depressed words just depressed minds.
Depression is when you’re waiting not to do things; happiness is when you can’t wait to do things.
I thought of this saying when I realized that when I was depressed, I stopped myself from doing things – I put obstacles in my way. When you’re melancholy it’s like when you’re in your garage and the engine won’t start.
When you’re contented, you’re revving the engine, raring to go.
Curing the depression won’t change lifelong habits for most people.
Noble deeds and hot baths are the best cures for depression.
– Dodie Smith

Grief is depression in proportion to circumstance; depression is grief out of proportion to circumstance.

You handle depression in much the same way you handle a tiger.
Don’t spend your life being depressed by it. As long as you’re alive you should be thankful. There are so many people that have it worse than you, don’t spend your life being ignorant to that.
