I let go of my need for approval. These women can inspire and support you. When we are stressed, we forget to have fun and laugh. I know I do and I don't think anyone should feel bad for being brave enough to admit that they do! Go to comedies and out with the girls for a few laughs. My fire is gone, my fight is gone.
Perhaps divorce catapulted you into the workforce unprepared. And it helps that enchantment of watching an actor. I know what can make me feel better. Not always the first one they tried, and it does take a while, but eventually there would be improvement. I know exactly how you feel, like there is nothing left to get off the floor for. But from inside the mask, you cannot see clearly.
You need to stop being so hard on yourself and you need to keep some of the kindness for yourself that you so freely share with others. I feel like this whenever I go through a slump. Obviously what you are taking isn't working. After re-reading my posts today, I felt embarrassed, but I also felt relieved because of how much better I feel today. You've lived as the socially acceptable version of yourself far too long.
I became outgoing, learned to talk to people, learned to handle my fears, learned to compromise. I feel like my doctor is no help, and all he wants to do is put me on pills, and make me exercise. Some time ago I had it all figured out but now… I lost my hope. No one ever told me anything that fixed my problems. Let go of your expectations and intentions. It sounds to me like there is an underlying reason for your depression, whether it is a loss of some kind, low self-esteem, abuse, an eating disorder, or even dealing with the reality of disappointments in your life and your parents' divorce. Please keep updating us on how you are doing, and make an appointment with your doctor if you haven't already.
What will make the difference in your life? I feel exhausted with trying to figure things out and feel like that this life is wasted on me. I havent lived through that but know many who have. Maybe its just pain and sadness your getting but why end any possibility that things might improve. So you feel isolated and disconnected. There is alot of time for you to find love if you just let yourself be loved and try not to do what I have done my whole life and push people away because i never felt worth loving…. Connect with a mentor now! Nobody understands me, and nobody listens to me! Be your own light, and use it to being others safely to shore.
My current friends are making me unhappy. Let go of everything you think is important and you will find your joyous, enthusiastic self has been there all along, waiting to be set free. I feel so terribly lonely and unloved that I can barely handle it anymore. You can be a Christian and still struggle with depression. . They all want me dead.
I know how hard that is, I have been socially isolated for 1 year and multiple suicide attempts check my posts. You are worthy of a good story and worthy to be loved. Are you seeing a therapist or pdoc? I know I am not severely depressed, but I am truly unhappy with everything in my life. I have to help customers who are self entitled and think I can just give them everything for nothing. All I can tell you, if you're brave enough is to get away from your life. I just keep going on like this.
If I lose my job, I am literally homeless because I live alone and I support myself. But, that is not how God looks at us. I cry constantly and just last night relapsed bad and passed out in town, made it home and cut bad, but then a friend rushed to me and saved me. Her most recent book is The Global Guide to Divorce and she has over 200 published articles. There is just no need for me in this world. And don't ever think of giving up on life. I love women like Brandi Glanville that have a zest for life and are 40 or older.
