What most people forget about depression

The thing about depression is that it either takes away all will to self-motivate and do what makes you feel better, or the things that made you feel better before have no affect on you anymore. That’s what most people forget. I hear all the time you should go meditate, go outside, take up some yoga, go socialize, or you’re not trying hard enough. With the other person not even realizing that if it was that easy, depression would probably not exist.

THANK YOU

all i want is an apartment in a city and a decent job, a dog, wifi and a tv, and someone to have sex with

It’s scary how accurate this is.  When I was young I wanted to be rich and successful.  Now this statement perfectly sums up my current ambition for life.  I can’t decide if that is sad or progress.

RIP Robin Williams. I grew up watching your face light up the screen and put smiles on my face and it makes me so sad that even you fell because of depression. But it happens to so many people. You were an extremely special performer. You will be missed.
It’s extremely important we begin to take depression seriously. Like what the hell are we doing, guys? Why is mental health continuously brushed off? Let’s stop making depression jokes and let’s stop making people feel bad for being depressed or have anxiety for that matter. Let’s start taking it seriously and let’s stop avoiding a friend who has depression just because it makes you feel uncomfortable. The least you can do is encourage them, encourage their mind, encourage their strength. Do not ignore them.
