When you’re depressed it isn’t just a state of unhappiness. It’s not just something you can simply brush off as having a unfavorable day. Because depression is a series of bad days with no explanation as to why. And you’re overcome with guilt for feeling these things. People ask you why you’re depressed and you can’t actually answer it properly. You just are.
You are executing all the factors you possibly can to shake this unwelcomed feeling, that has made a home inside you.
You get up and before your eyes even open, you just want to go back once again to sleep. You already know the type of day you’re going to have, based on that weight that feels heavy in your chest.
Your alarm goes off and you turn over the other way and close your eyes. It requires all the factors in you to simply get up. You just want to lay there for the day and not move.
But then you muster whatever quality you have, you get up. You get dressed. You look presentable because as dead as you feel inside, you won’t ever dress the part.
So on nowadays, when it feels hopeless, when you feel like you don’t have anything to seem forward to or when it physically hurts you the thought of getting through the day, when you want just go back once again to sleep, I want you to remember this…
When you’re depressed and struggling, tomorrows are what you hold onto. Those moments of bliss and pleasure for however short it lasts are what you look at.
But if you can remember one thing, those moments of happiness will come back around too.
This state of overwhelming unhappiness is fundamentally a state of being. Feelings pass and that’s all this is. And this depressed state you’re in will too. You will get through this. WE will get through this. Because I’m with you in this too and you are not alone.
Repeat that, ‘you are not alone’, even in those moments it feels like you are.
All I ask of you is to not give up yet. You’re stronger than you realize. You’re more beautiful than you see in your reflection. Hold on to that tomorrow or the next day. Because there are better things ahead than this moment and you have to think about that. You have to trust me.
