Why can't I just be happy? I'm so tired of feeling this way. I just want to be happy. I just want to feel something besides sadness and worthlessness. How are you all dealing with depression?

      Something I do is do something that makes you feel better. Accomplishing something, especially done well displaying your skill, can help you feel better. There may be something that only you can offer. A talent that is yours alone. Does that make sense?

      I’ve been taking my depression more seriously for the first time in 15 years by doing a residential mental health program, followed up by a month in partial hospitalization. Higher levels of care may not be for everyone, but it’s something to consider if you’re struggling. 💜 I’m cheering you on.

Some people dealing with depression have found it helpful to do small things that make them feel self-gratifying, like completing projects around the house or making a list of things they would like to accomplish. Consistency in activities such as exercise or walking for 40 days can help change your brain's pattern. Others have found therapy beneficial, taking breaks, doing fun activities, and building a support system. Some have turned to religion for comfort while others have started therapy and medication. It's also suggested to spend time focusing on what you value and cherish.
