I don't know, listen to some music, talk to some people somewhere, you'll probably feel a little better.

Yes it does. From personal expirence, the best advice I can give somebody that depressed is just try to appreciate the little things a bit more. Think positively instead of negativity. Talk to friends more, be more social, get outside. Appreciate everything you have because there are ppl that have it far worse

Well, is your emotional distress caused by an internal force or an external force, to begin with? In other words, is it caused by someone else or you? If it is someone else causing the problem, you should eliminate all toxic people from your life that you can, especially ones that are bent on never changing for you or anyone.

Sometimes people just get down and there is no logic in it. I am an older lady who has been around. Mistreated by heroin addicted parents, abused, emotionally & physically. I left home at 15, supported myself, finished high school and was working 2 jobs when I graduated. I ended up joining the Marine Corps and it helped transform my life, but even during that time I questioned my own self-worth, questioned whether I was worthy of being loved, had constant fear of rejection and abandonment. I looked at myself and all I saw was ugliness and I felt shame about how I looked. I look back at photos of myself when I was 18 and I was not fat, but you couldn't convince me of that back then. I had such a distorted view of myself, it wasn't even funny. I ended up finding the love of my life and having 2 kids of my own, of which I've never mistreated, and we've been together for 24 years now.

What has helped me along my life is the realization that bad things happen to good people and that sometimes, there is nothing we can do about it. We have to move forward and try to overcome what ever it is. You just have to try to see what the positive are in your life. Have appreciation for the life that you currently have and maybe what can be in the future. We must all be grateful for the good things we have and know that things could always be worse. Evaluate the severity of your problems and weigh all and any possible solutions and attack them logically. Love and happiness cannot emanate every moment of our lives, but we can learn to be content.

I've suffered from depression since high school, so for a little over 20 years now, and it does really suck sometimes. Thankfully I've always had people around me, either friends or family, that I could talk to and have helped support me through everything. I've been through some really bad and negative shit though, so sometimes it still gets the better of me. But having people to be able to turn to and talk to, even if it's your dark thoughts that you're talking to them about, has helped me to get things out and get through them. And ever since a medical problem that I'd been dealing with for ten years was fixed last year though surgery, I've been feeling much better mentally because I feel better physically. I know that that isn't the case for everyone though. Oh, and anime. Anime's helped me through so many times of being depressed and lifted me up that I don't know what I'd do without it. And my cat too has helped. Believe it or not, he's the one that when I'm so depressed that I don't care about anyone else in my life and about leaving them behind, that will stop and make me think twice about it. Because while the humans in my life might understand what I had done, he wouldn't know what had happened to his Mommy and that would make him sad and I don't want to do that to him. I know that it may sound silly, but it's the truth. So whatever you need to do, say, talk, think, or whatever to get through your depression without hurting yourself, no matter how trivial or silly or stupid you may think that it is, just do it. I'm sure that you will feel a whole lot better if you do.

P.S. If you want to PM me about what's going on, maybe I can help. I've been through Hell and back with depression and stuff that has happened in my life, and I'm a good listener that gives good advice. So if you need someone to talk to, I'm here for you.

It's encouraging that you can tell that you're depressed. That means that you probably also know how to start getting better - and care enough to do something about it. You posted a message on a semi-public forum, presumably looking for advice, or maybe just needing empathy from fellow humans (or other species) that have experienced depression before. That's a good start; not everybody is brave enough to do that.
