Short-lived feelings of isolation, sadness, loneliness or distress are part of being human, but when these emotions remain unchanged over time and start to interfere with day-to-day tasks and overall well-being, they could be signs .
Contrary of what a lot of people said depression is not a sign of weakness and is much more than feeling down or unhappy for a little while.Start fight!Push yourself to do things, even when you don’t feel like it. You might be surprised at how much better you feel once you’re out in the world. Even if your depression doesn’t lift immediately, you’ll gradually feel more upbeat and energetic as you make time for fun activities.Try to keep up with friends.Ask for support. Make sure you’re getting emotional support. Talk to people you trust about how you are feeling.Do your best to stay active every day.Know your triggers and risk factors.Whenever you feel extreme emotions, take a beat and try to identify if it’s a result of real life or some meaningless, internal storm.Take each day as it comes. Tomorrow can always be better.
"We reach a point where, in order to go on, we have to wipe the slate clean. We start to see ourselves as a box that we're trapped inside and no matter how we try and escape, self help, therapy, drugs, we just sink further and further down. We start to see ourselves as a box (click here) The only way to truly break out of the box is to get rid of it all together... I mean, you built it in the first place.If the people around you are breaking your spirit, who needs them? Your wife who pretends to love you, your son who can't even stand you. I mean, put them out of their misery.Starting over isn't crazy. Crazy is being miserable and walking around half asleep, numb, day after day after day. Crazy is pretending to be happy. Pretending that the way things are is the way they have to be for the rest of your bleeding life. All the potential, hope, all that joy, feeling, all that passion that life has sucked out of you. Reach out, grab a hold of it and snatch it back from that bloodsucking rabble."
