The words I want to read when Im depressed. I call them my fight words.
Depression surface when you have no one to talk to.
Depression arises when you lay still in your bed with nothing to do and you cant sleep.
Depression surface when you know you are not capable of doing what you want because of your environment.
Depression occurs when you are not happy with what you have.
But depression is a state of mind. Its just a demon in your head telling you that you cant be happy. That you cant be anything. It will cripple you if you let it.
How can I fight depression?
Love and love well. Get up and be motivated. Do the things you want to do even if its limited to what you can just do.
Talk to family and friends. Do not think that they are busy. Because they will have time for you. If they don’t, move on with your life. Its not the end of the world.
Game yourself more.
Go outside and walk. Just do something outside. Anything. Eat ice cream. Binge.
Zoom in the happiness in little things.
Comfort yourself with loving thoughts. Enjoy your own company. Create a peaceful aura in your bed.
Listen to music.
You are anything but beautiful. And the demons in your head lies to you. You are capable of doing anything. Just keep on doing what you love.
Write and write more. Your writing may help others as they conquer their fear of being alone.
Cook. Clean. Theres a lot to do. But you don’t do it. Because you’re busy being sad. And thats the hardest part. Fighting sadness.
Smile. Remember that you are not alone in this fight.
And when everything fails, tell yourself you have come this far. You are not just gonna give up just because the demons in your head told you so.
