Hi. Its odd. I dont remember what “happy” feels like anymore. I dont know when I’m not depressed anymore, I guess. When does one overcome depression? Can that even be possible?

      Getting rid of depression completely, well I'm no professional, but I don't think it's possible. That would certainly be nice though and I would like to be proven wrong. Overcoming it to the point where it won't dictate your life like you were its puppet on the other hand... yes, I believe it is. When does this happen? After a lot. A lot of dedication and hardships. A lot of wins and losses. It'll be a long, grueling and seemingly pointless process, but chains can definitely be cut and finally being free of the weight dragging you down will be so worth it. Happy is different for everyone and every scenario. It's the little things. The flare of a firework, or the bloom of a flower. A person holding your hand or the adrenaline in a race. Happy is all of those things, and it is all of those things combined into a bigger ball you can call life. Overcoming depression, I think, is being able to cherish that ball for the good inside of it despite of all the muck that it also ran into.
