“Good Job! Good Effort!”
This day will live forever and ever and ever and ever! Now someone teach that kid that in life, there are winners and losers.
Give a moment to rest, relax, reflect and recollect your thoughts. You need time to really clear your mind up.
Think about what is making you feel this way. Was it an accumulation of oppressed feelings, or an acutely traumatic event?
Check if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Feeling irritable, frustrated, and/or restless
- Being unable to concentrate
- Thinking negatively
- Lack of energy
- Loss of interest in favorite activities
- Sleeping too little or too much
- Unexplainable aches and pains
- Feeling alone
- Feelings of worthlessness
- Excessive/inappropriate guilt
- Thinking about death and suicide
Here are some things a depressed person might think:
- “I feel sad all the time.”
- “My life isn’t worth living.”
- “I don’t deserve to be happy.”
- “I don’t enjoy things I used to .”
- “I don’t care if I die, whether my friends or family are sad.”
If you think you have depression, talk to your doctor or trusted loved ones. They will help you through difficult times.
- Remember, depression is NOT a sign of weakness. Reach out and seek help! Many people suffer silently while depression hurts them. Don’t be afraid to find help.
- Every reason for depression is different, so solutions will be different. This can never be a one-size-fits-all guide.
- Look at your actions; are you being making things worse by being (unjustifiably) violent towards your mom, or dad, or damaging relationships? People do crazy things when they’re depressed. Although counseling may help, you have to find a person who works well with you to figure out why you’re depressed, and what you can do about it. The main thing is that YOU have to be ready if you want to do it.
- Hint : If your feeling depressed, writing your thoughts down on a piece of paper is always a good way to express your feelings and get them out, sometimes they may even make you feel much better.
