theabortionatorHard to gauge. Depression is a bitch.
MTNSProbably when I was a sophomore in highschool. Came home from school and just sat there and did nothing. I had no friends and was completely uncertain about my future. One day I came home from school and cried for an hour. Two hours later I was in the woods by my house, holding a knife to my throat, and leaving a suicide letter. Don't know why I didn't end it, but I just took 3 deep breaths, dropped the knife, and walked home.
selfiejesusin 2013, 1,149 suicides were reported, making suicide the 10th leading cause of death for Americans. In that year, someone in the country died by suicide every 12.8 minutes. it's not something to be spoken passingly about.
CONAIR_BUSCEMIHey, kid I’m almost 21 and I still don’t know what I want to do with my life. Live in the moment and don’t take the small things for granted. 1.2 billion people still live in extreme poverty, while more than 800 million struggle to find food. You are living very well compared to a lot of other people so embrace it.
If there is a void or hole in your life think about helping others in need. Volunteer and give to those that are less fortunate than you. You’ll be surprised at how easily it can lift you out of depression and in the process you’ll make others radiate as well.
Don’t worry and don’t overthink things, it will bite you in the butt. I use to do that as a teenager and it caused me derealization and depersonalization which is not a good feeling.
iFlipThis math does not add up.
theabortionatorI hate this argument. "There are other people who don't have as much food, don't have a house, have a smaller dick, don't have skis, or whatever so you should be depressed". This mentality just goes to show our lack of understanding of mental illness.
I do agree that helping others can be very therapeutic. If nothing else at least you can help somebody else out make them feel better, even if you still feel like shit.
