Depression Quotes, Sayings about being depressed
Depression is like being lost at sea, there is nothing in sight yet you still keep swimming not to live but to survive, forever swimming looking for some one, some thing to hold on too, you finally reach an island in sight just as the sun arises you awake and it is a new day and you find yourself swimming yet again forever searching for that something burdened by the brief moment of false happiness of having found that something, someone, to hold on to, to save you of your forever search called life.

Depression is different for every person. It’s a disease that you can’t get rid of. It’s staring at the ceiling at 4:00 in the morning with your eyes burning not even trying to find motivation to close them.

People say that it’s normal for adults and teens to have depression and they think its just sadness or crying all the time, but its not that at all it’s waking up everyday and wondering to yourself who am I why am I even here; what is even my goal in life and not knowing who you are. I have it for years and I don’t know my own strength or who I am anymore. I have no emotion just numbness in my heart and I don’t know what to do anymore. It feels like nobody can help.

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 does not kill you instantly, it kills you slowly.
Depression is not just being sad, or scared. It’s much more. Depression is feeling worthless, being betrayed. Feeling that betrayal all the time. Not reaching out or being acknowledged. Giving scars when you feel no one’s your friend. Depression can not be cured with cuddles or being told “It’s going to be okay” because it is not going to be okay. Look deep and- wait, why am I telling you? You won’t even understand.
Being negative only causes depression. So hold your head up high, put a smile on your face and go live a positive life.
