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 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?

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 when you have lots of love, but no one’s taking.

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.

I say there’re no depressed words just depressed minds.

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. It’s you trying to go threw everyday trying so hard not to cry every time you’re reminded of that one thing that made you hurt so much.

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.

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.

Would you like to know how I feel?

Have you ever had a nightmare in which you’re so scared that you try and scream so loud for someone to save you, but not a sound comes out of your lips?

That’s how I feel everyday, all day.

I need a huge non-judgmental, sincere, no strings attached, no questions asked, from someone, anyone. Hug !! But I don’t want to ask for it, but I’m praying so hard that you will do it on your own.
