You can give meditation a try. it might not seem to be working at first but if you put in the effort to keep trying, it might really help. You can also look up self improvement videos on youtube to see how you can help yourself.

I would first ask if support for your depression is available from someone? Are you seeking support or just wanting to go at it alone. I know at times battling depression seems like a weakness or even embarrassing to discuss with friends or family. For whatever reason you think you do have to go it alone, you don't. If suicide has become a valid option for you, you need to seek out a qualified therapist who can help you with these feelings. It is so important! Being in the midst of serious depression makes you feel hopeless, but the light at the end of the tunnel is always closer than you think!

Its hard to battle depression on your own, it's kind of like writing a test and getting it corrected by yourself, what I mean to say is its best to share the burden and that might be the reason why 7 cups was invented, it is very hard to cope up with depression with yourself cause it will seem like you have no hope, however its good to tell someone cause it gets it off your chest and you will feel better than you actually were, personally I used to cope up with depression with myself and felt like killing myself and even tried but one day I couldn't help but vent out to people who I wasnt even close to, I barely knew or talked to them but they always kept me in check and yes I did try it even after them chasing after me cause it's hard to leave something you are used to but it gets better and better and then they went away from my life which made me harder to cope up with it but I remembered one thing, these scars are a reminder that I am alive, that I am still breathing, that I have people who care about me and I still have a whole life to live and people to meet, keep telling yourself that and watch a funny video, I used to watch pewdiepie whenever I felt sad or I used to do impersonations of famous people or the people I know
