I never talk about it… cause really.. who can honestly do anything.. or even wants to.
All there is to do is talk. Nothing changes. You still end up feeling the same in the end, and the things that bring it on always spiral back around to remind you of how miserable you really are, and how hard it is to bottle it up.
…but you keep smiling. Not for yourself, but so you simply don’t inconvenience others by making them feel what you feel, cause that only makes you feel worse.
Its a struggle, and no amount of, “What you need to do is…” or “You need to look at it this way…” will ever help.
It always makes me feel more vulnerable to admit it. I have had depression for over 20 years.
I never talk about it… my social media is always full of all the good things in life.. but some days make me scream inside. #smilingdepression it’s real.
