I am not Depressed.

Depression is real. Compassion is also real. And a depressed person may cling desperately to it until they are out of the woods and they may remember your compassion for the rest of their lives as a force greater than their depression.

People tend to think when you say you are depressed, you are just being a sad privileged prick, sometimes I wish that were true, it kind of has a quick solution that way, just find a source of joy and be less of a prick, right?

Sadly, depression is not sadness, it is a lack of vitality and intense apathy towards almost everything, if you are lucky, if not, towards everything and I mean everything.

    1. No, not in the moment. I’m fine, I coped.
      But I really liked what he wrote. Depression is tricky, dealing with a depressed friend more so. It’s a careful tread for which I like the insight..
      Thanks for caring though ☺️

      1. Hahaha. Repercussions maybe. But I’ve seen worse days so this day is fine, really! xp
        I have to make a profound apology, one of the aftermaths of my anger and frustration, that is the only thing occupying my mind rn.
