What it's like to be depressed

Friday October 4, 2019

I have always pondered this question and I've never been able to think of one simple answer, however I'll give it a go and see if anyone can relate.

I wake up in the morning thinking I'm not good enough, I look at other people throughout the day and think they are better at what they do than me. I'm not good enough for my relationships, I feel like a failure pretty often, find it difficult to relate to people which in turn makes me feel worse!

No matter what I seem to do, my brain keeps on telling me I'm not worthy of any happiness or any self worth. That is sad because it's a self fulfilling prophecy and I've tried all my life to change or want to fit in and I'm pretty sick of it, but find it extremely difficult to cope. I do however exercise, eat pretty decently, don't drink that much at all and yet this feeling of of being stuck in a black hole doesn't seem to lift... but everyday I fight another day!

Who ever said life was easy... it's definitely not like this.

Can anyone relate?
