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.

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 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 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 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.
