People are as trivial as they make themselves out to be. If you put your head down for a moment and tell yourself you can then you'll be king of the world. No one really stops and gives up. That's not what's inside people.

No ones worthless. It's in your head. Even if everyone's siding against you your on your own team and should pull your weight.

I'm no longer depressed anymore. I solved my own problems. try finding the root of the problem philosophically, then actually solving it. it's more philosophical having to do with your brain functions.

I disagree. There are non invasive methods to penis enlargement. http://www.sizegenetics.com/ The enlargement of the penis is insubstantial to a man being clinically depressed. He could have the whole world and sense an emptiness.

It's a lie. The cake is a lie.

The fork. You must welcome the fork and behold it's splendour.

Yes. You can be depressed and not know it. Depression can either be a chemical imbalance or a fact of life. Something could be bothering you that you might not know about. Perhaps you've hid it well. Eventually, depression can become irritating if left alone for too long. If your problem is psychological, I'd recommend a change in belief and behavior. You make what you are for the day. You choose to make it a good or a bad day. You could try things like waking up in the morning and keep a positive outlook. Even if there's nothing special, just go with it. It ought to take you out of it. It sure helped for me at one point and I tend to wake up with a decent mentallity. I tend to just let things be. Does this help?

No worries, cynicism doesn't mean you are depressed, although depressed people do tend to be cynical. Cart before the horse, and all that.

Life doesn't immediately grant you a defined purpose, simply for existing; It's your job to go find it. Purpose is also not static, it can and will change throughout your life. But yes, if you are stagnant, without any sense of direction, then that can bring on the extrinsic, causative form of depression (versus from a pre-exisiting chemical inbalance).

The cure for that would be to get in the game, do some introspecting, find out what makes you tick, what is most vitally important to you (not what others think should be important). Confront those inner demons, while you're at it. Then act, without being overly concerned about potential errors, because they happen and you have to accept that they will to move forward. It may seem daunting, even frightening to do so, but you will just have to man up if you really want to get out of your funk.

Depression to me is either continuous sadness or boredom. Maybe both. Lack of life goals or human interaction is a good cause.

I recommend taking a good look at reality. It sucks, it won't change. Make the best out of your life, the worst that can happen is your death. Everyone dies eventually, so keep suicide for when you're like 70.

The most accurate portrayal of depression I found:

Depression to me is when you start to exclude yourself from the things that you usually do. Feeling like you are always out of the hoop or you don't feel the sense of being happy and all you have in your mind is that dark cloud. And no, you are supposed to get treatment if you have depression, not kill yourself. Also, being cynical doesn't necessarily means depression.

Deep depression, the type that requires medical intervention is when you don't eat properly and are doing damage to your body by not sleeping also, or not even getting out of bed at all. Its a dark time that most of us will face sooner or later =/ It just means you're unstable and some people just don't know how to fight it or seek help. More should be done to raise awareness of it because some people will hide it extremely well and you don't know how much they're hurting inside until they take their own lives.

Yes, you can be depressed and not know it. Often people don't realize it until it is pointed out to them or that they become very deeply depressed. Sometimes it is normal to be a bit sad too, though and not be depressed.

Important things to consider are things like finding it difficult to enjoy things that you used to, thinking negatively and assuming the worst, changes in appetite and sleep. Someone who is thinking about death or suicide needs to talk to someone right away.

People who become clinically depressed don't become that way instantly and they don't recover instantly either.

Depression is when you get arthritis and you can't make duckies with your fingers. Quack quack.
