Depression

My depression comes to me very hard. I’m trying my best to conquer my battles each day with positive thoughts. But depression seems to take over. Loneliness plays a big part. Does anyone feel lonely?

That’s great you’re looking into it - hope maybe that can be helpful for you

I feel very lonely and alone. And it is truth that l indeed am. It is devastatingly depressing and makes my depression much worse. We all need to be loved, supported, feel wanted and needed. Life is exceptionally harsh and cruel.Weakness is not depression, it takes huge strenght to bare the immense weight of it. True grit and steely strenght from within.

So what causes your depression.

A lot I don't even know how to word or where to begin and not sure I will ever share to strangers and online for anybody to read.

I understand. I don’t blame you. But it’s a safe platform. There’s no judging

No platform is safe!

There are always people who will join for snooping reasons for their own entertainment to read about other people's personal lives, misfortunes, problems, illnesses, conditions, traumas, upset etc.

I share what is similar in my life to others here, but will never share everything for anybodies entertainment and hunger for other people's life stories and information. You say there is no judging, I dispute that, because it is the core of human nature to form opinions/make assumptions/judgements. The difference here is people tend to not voice any of it, and do instead here try to be the best people they possibly can be. And unlike on other platforms - here people silence those things mentioned above, trying instead to be supportive, but all whether they care to admit/be honest or not will have formed and done the above mentioned, it happens automatically. All support offered comes from opinion/assumption/judgement with the best of intentions or at times with the worse intentions depending upon who is listening/reading.

So sorry for your sadness JW

I wonder if you know of people like Mooji, Eckhart Tolle, Lee Holden, Jeffrey Chand. I wonder if listening , watching one of their videos each day may help you, their videos can be found on you tube. You can opt to select say 10 minutes to start if you so wish.

Hope you are soon feeling better and less alone.
