I truly hope you are doing better today and are still here. Your life is important and you are worth more then the lies you believe. Please know this. I totally get the self loathing....believe I lived like that for 25 years. It has been 10 years of freedom from the lies and thoughts that plagued me...

Re: giving up

You are not alone! I understand it gets overwhelming when we look at the state of the world but there are still so many amazing people out here and if we all quit attempting to make a better world. I know I get overwhelmed very easily, the only thing that focuses me and calms my soul is my faith in ...

Re: Really struggling with my depression

@motherof3- Being the rock of a family is something I can relate to. It is amazing how many people depend on you as a mama, wife, daughter and so on. It is hard to keep in perspective that we are just human and as a human we need to have someone to lean on too. If we try to take on all of the world ...

Re: Who said that The purpose of Life is to be happy?

Not sure if the purpose of life is to be happy. I tend to think more of Love being the purpose. True happiness comes from unconditional love. There is only one that can give you unconditional love and that is the Creator, Jesus. For me any other happiness is impossible. I totally get what you are sa...

Re: I need advice regarding my friend...

@averyshortgiraffe - The thing with depression is you can be good one day and then the next is something different. There is no way to tell if it is true depression or not only a therapist could do that and if she isn’t getting help that is on her not you. All you can do is talk to her about your c...

Re: Newly married, recurring depression

Mia- First I am glad you are on hear talking about what is going on. You are not alone. I had depression for 25 years and though I would never get out of that hole. But there is hope.

Re: Why it keeps coming back?

Oh I totally get the confusion, loneliness and hopelessness you must be feeling right now. For many years I wished the same things. Even though my life wasn’t horrible my brain just kept thinking of suicide. I felt like that was the only answer. But it is not and I learned this over time. Have you t...

Aesthetic - Oh my friend....I am so sorry to hear you are experiencing these feelings right now. I can relate to the confusion almost lost feeling you described.
