totally agree and it's getting kinda annoying

Yeah, I'm depressed so feel sorry for me.

You don't know fuck all about depression.

Depression can potentially kill someone.

Depression is living with someone you truely care about and are inseparable with, living with them your whole life, and losing them unexpectedly. Being tortured your whole life, living paralyzed your whole life every waking moment, living with crippling pain every single moment of your life.

Not this childish bullshit about acceptance, all these kids don't know a Fucking thing about depression, claiming they are depressed because nobody loves them. I tell Ya kids today, more worried about being depressed than living their lives, they don't know how easy they have it, what people use to deal with, but yet there are more people depressed than ever.

The world is still an ugly place, but you haven't seen what true horror and despair really is, so why take it upon yourself to bring it into your life? It's like we believe depression to be acceptable in our lives

Life is to unfair as it currently is for most people not to be depressed at one point or another. I was also depressed for about a year, but i started watching more anime and im also a huge science fan, so i went and looked for some science videos on youtube and came across videos from neil degrasse tyson and carl sagan and just watched them over and over. Those kinds of videos put life into perspective and teach you to truly think and wounder about the world and yourself in it.

I also have 2 desires, well 2 main desires that i truly want more than anything.

1. Eternal youth
2. to live in an anime world

Science can make both of these things happen and there is a chance of that happening in my life time so having those kinds of thoughts keep me happy and looking to the future.

Also i've started listening to myself, my inner self. I do what i want when i want and this truly helps.

But yeah life sucks.

Now this can be answered in many ways, but it would take time and energy I am just not willing to put into it, though I loved to speak with the engineering staff at the power plant i worked at for two years about, population growth, global warming man made, and many other issues loved it when a smart engineer would after a discussion get a Blank look in the eyes and realize my point! Because they would get to the conclusion I knew from the start without me ever bringing it up, man kind as a speciese is in trouble,

It's neat though the current studies do not point out, preindustrial age biomass totals to current world wide totals! Now take the foot print o every man made road all building, houses, factories even and remove that biomass potential from say oxygen generation by said bio mass. Take coral bleaching, ocean acidification by CO2, methane release by artic warming, the potential of Yellow Stone, a ten billion population levels, and super bugs from hospitals world wide, the bee die offs, clouds of toxins roaming around the world as tacked by satellites. Add economic strife, increased anti depressants use and lack of wage increases, increased hours, lack of actual usable vacation time, lack of health care or stable costs of health care , the exit of Great Britain from the EU, though I could careless. The export of jobs over seas with little regard for those who lose there source of income due to pure corpate greed! The lack of ethical behavior by the congress and senate in the USA. With all that there is nothing to be depressed about as a informed person! Oh yea the satellite view of the rain forests for the last five years showing the Worlds largest source of oxygen production getting wiped flat for cows and grass! Nothing at all!

I mean, people get sad sometimes. Sometimes people do actually have depression. It's a pretty common mental health issue.

No just informed on the real issues, I have let it go! But still read the news science is no joke folks, I like anime, sci fy camping, rafting and none of the above will kill me well not in this life time! Oh yea for got to mention the ocean of plastic and the man made chemicals trapped in Artic ice being released and Fukushima or Oil pipe line spills, fracking the chemicals used are poisonous and go straight into ground water supplies, red tides oceans toxic, so yea some folks could be depressed due to a realization of some these issues or not,

For the good of everyone it really shouldn't, but that's not how things work, never did, never will. People see this as an opportunity, something they could never have unless they adress the issue.

People feel sorry for others who are depressed, so what better way to gain attention than to become something that is defended as ( a sensitive topic ) people who are depressed are vulnerable, so we defend them. Others use this as a means to make themselves heard when they themselves are suffering from self loathing, something that is personal to an individual, but now it is another way to communicate with others.

This is what we must compete with.

I completely understand wanting to slap sense into the overly melodramatic and those who are not genuine. It irritates me greatly some people think it's just being sad or critical of oneself.

However, not all depression is founded on horrific circumstance. Depression can often be the ailment of other mental illnesses and physical ailments. It can even be it's own neurological problem, like cases of chronic depression--a faulty neurological issue. There are even genetic links to probabilistic outcomes in offspring--even in the developmental environment. Certainly depression can arise from more objectively terrible life experiences--but that isn't always the case. Thresholds differ for individuals. Stress on the body or mind can trigger such a state--whether external or internal. In today's world, there are many reasons for people to be stressed.

Only so much empathy can be afforded to be given to others in the interest of our own well being. Our lives, at the end of the day, our own responsibility. That being said, one does not have to trample upon empathy in order not to offer it. You can be supportive or you can choose not to get involved.

Better to be safe than sorry and not downplay the issues of others.
