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.
Your pupils dilate as the room fills with darkness, searching for light, just as your soul dilates as your body fills with a dark emptiness in search of a light within, a reason, searching for the hole that your happiness bled from the skin you inhabit in the hopes you can patch that hole so you can slowly fill once again with internal light we call happiness, consciousness, hope, but most of all life.
Laying in your bed and closing your eyes can be a perilous thing. Your mind is running, and circumstance that you don’t want to recall appear. You try to fall asleep, but the thoughts abstain you from sleeping. It’s like having a ringing noise resonate through your entire mind. You want to shut it off, but you can’t. Now you are just laying there with no hope in mind.
Depression is having the feeling of someone whispering in your ear and telling you that you are worthless. Every time you make a mistake, you keep getting reminded of it; it’s never painless. From these mistakes, it makes you reckless. Now you ask yourself, is my life priceless or worthless?
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?
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 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.
How did I go from that little 5 year old, always happy & always laughing, to…this?
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.
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.
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).
