just take enough rest/time for yourself when your depressed and try to ride it out it usually doesn't last for ever and even if it does i only have a few ways to deal with it

one is try to act like you always do and pretend you don't feel that way
its not the best option but it worked for me a couple of times
because when people are getting all worried about and keep asking why you are so depressed it doesn't really help since you don't always have a concrete reason why you are depressed in my case sometimes i have no reasons at all

another way i try to deal with it is trying to get really angry at whatever it doesn't matter since felling anything at all is already better than feeling almost nothing except for that heavy void feeling that just sucks the life and energy out of you

this worked for me hope it works for some of you


This is so true. Other people getting worried just makes me feel even more miserable. The best thing that worked for me is to just suck it up, live with it and accept the fact that I'm a failure to my own standards, a future drone/tool and a good candidate for dying alone. It might sound too negative but this sort of outlook helped me to stop making unrealistic expectations and being too hard on myself.

And I agree with you that being angry helps. It's like containing a tidal wave of unnameable negative thoughts and emotions and pouring them into a jar conveniently labeled "Rage."

24/7. Nothing really takes it away completely, though being with others lessens it.

well i watch a lot of anime and read a lot of manga but that's pretty much what I do when I'm not depressed lol

But if I'm really upset I do something I enjoy like running around outside or playing piano or something.

Different things work for different people.

Sometimes if you're in a rut, you need a change in scenery. Just even getting up and walking / driving somewhere else than where you're sitting and brooding might be good.

Also, talking to somebody could do some good. I've found if I just sit in my office all day without talking to anyone I'd kinda go NUTS

i used to get depressed a lot more especially when i was younger and just felt lost in life. i still feel that way from time to time but the way i keep moving is reminding myself how needed i am in the here an now. that i have people depending on me to be here and pull myself together for them. whether its friends or my husband or family or my kids i just remind myself constantly when i get to feeling at my lowest that there are people around me who depend on me and i cannot be so selfish as to think of taking myself from them even for a moment. that usually always works for me.
i hope you get to feeling better too

I'd just say to try new things and include variation! Even gaming got me depressed after i had played the same game for six months straight. So now i'm on an anime spree. Not depressed anymore.

Probably not healthy but I do the same thing. ^ And when I want to tear up and scream, I can't. It automatically shuts off for some reason. Well yeah..not sure if it's good or bad, no matter how much I'm eaten up inside.

Temporary solution if you ask me. Unless you attack the problem head on, it will eventually grow bigger and catch up with you, and thus making it much harder to deal with. Of course it depends entirely on what's making you depressed, but in most cases that solution is only temporary.

If its actual depression? You seek help. If its being a bit sad, time

For me, I either shove it into a deep, dark corner of my (rather messed up) psyche, or I override it with large amounts of alcohol. At this moment, I am buzzing rather nicely, thank you very much.

i am glad you understand it

and you aren't to negative not by my standards
and i don't think dying alone is that bad
at the very least nobody can annoy you in your final moments

Financial independence and money are major problems for me and some of my specific problems. I've also never had much confidence or self-esteem either, and I'm easy to loose or gain it.
