Damn Depression

  1. Depression is an all consuming and painful experience. I feel for you. I know you are feeling lost and out of sync. You may think that you alone and weak but I think that you are extremely brave. You wrote down everything you felt, just like that, raw. That takes courage. I admire that in you. Sometimes the people who are around you every day are the hardest ones to reach. It’s hard for them to detach themselves from their desire for you to be happy and well. They do love you even if it seems like they don’t get you. Keep writing and I will keep reading. Thank you.

  2. Not everyone “gets it” but some people do. Writing, in my experience, and writing honestly and openly where you can get at least some confirmation that someone heard you (via likes and comments) helps defray that “shouting into the wind” feeling that can be so over-whelming.

    I don’t have any great wisdom to offer. But I can tell you I’m reading and I get it.

    1. I was afraid to write about it because of that “shouting in the wind” feeling. To me talking openly and having no one hear you can feel worse than not talking at all. I needed to try though so I hit the publish button and it seems there is someone listening after all. Thank you so much!

  3. wow. I know how you’re feeling :( Life has it’s ups and downs but if it didn’t then you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between ‘sad’ and ‘happy’. It takes both sun and rain to create a beautiful rainbow!
    and sorry to drop it like this but I have nominated you for the liebster awards so check it out on my blog :)

    1. Oh I agree completely. The times when we are down are a great time for self reflection and growth. I try to remember that and take full advantage. It can be hard to keep that perspective though but that’s what writing is for right? To get it out and examine it even when it’s hard to do. Thank you for reading.

  5. You are incredibly brave! Writing always helps, and while I know it’s the same or it may sound corny, but we are all here supporting you and being in your corner. When you feel alone, just let us know, and we will be here. I wish I could tell you how to beat it but I don’t, just one step at the time.

    1. I appreciate this so much! I am trying to remember that it is a day by day, one step at a time thing and I need to keep fighting. It’s nice to hear that other people understand though. Thank you.

  6. Hey Lisa,

    The strongest people is who can see the bad days next to the good ones. I hope writing is for you no pressure either – don’t bother too much for your readers- they already like you – please write for yourself. You are smart because every post has one big message anyway. You are doing great, go on and love yourself. You deserve it! Real friends wouldn’t bother you talking so much about your emotional rollercoaster. Once you have some energy again, you’ll do right the same thing back for them. I am sure of that :) It is quite normal that you – or others – cannot always stay happy. Like I said, people sometimes have hard times, and sometimes good ones.
    Everybody needs a bit of me-time. Me-quality-time ;) If you feel that your time is now, just take it. Once again, you deserve it. For your hard work.
    Take care and thanks a lot for writing sincerely.
    Grtz, Charlotte!
