fighting depression

You feel like falling deeper and deeper into a sunken hole of habitual skepticism. Psychoanalyzing yourself, seeking answers to the simple yet deeply rooted question, “How did I get here?”

It seems like being in the cycle of constantly battling with yourself internally.

Depression feels like not being able to get up in the morning…or at all – as if your bed is quicksand and you sink deeper and deeper into a pit of sorrows, like hitting the snooze on life for days on end.

You’re like spending hours of the day in a time-warp – everyone moving ahead, including your physical body, but the mind gotten lost in the past.

And then you start replaying moments in your head over and over again as if thinking about it enough will somehow change the chain of events.

  5. Unfortunately for most people, depression is masked by smiles and ‘normalcy’ that nobody has no way of knowing what’s really going on. It’s sad and I hope that there’ll be more support system for everyone going through like this.

  9. Depression is such a difficult subject to tackle, one can never tell that someone is on the verge of losing oneself. The best thing to do I guess is that be with the person that you think is in a difficult situation.

  10. Depression sucks. I’ve been through and came out winning. The only way to beat it is to spite it. Live and tell it “screw you” I am better than this. I loved your post. Thanks for sharing this.

  12. Yes! You need to talk about your depression and share your feelings. It is not easy to open up, it is not easy to speak our heart out but if you do that definitely helps.

  13. It was really nice to read this post. I focus on depression on my FB page. I suffer from depression and I can agree that it is definitely affected by what you choose to think about. However, it can consist of more for some. It is a battle that we must take on one day and one step at a time. But it’s time to kick depression in the a$$ and say good riddens. Thanks for the post.

    • Definitely. No matter how successful one is, no one is really sheltered from depression. It can happen to anyone, it happens without us seeing the signs. It’s like a thief. Everyone must be aware and shouldn’t take it for granted.
