By knowing that it does have an end. Think of how no one emotion can last forever. You can get through this and there is a way out. The thing with depression is that, its hard to see that light at the end of the tunnel, that everyone else sees. Its just hard to understand. But that doesn't mean you can not find it. You have to find the will and strength inside you to say that you are not going to feel this way anyone. This does not define you. It is only the beginning.
Once we realise that we are stronger than depression, then we will be able to fight back. We need to take back our lives and not be the victim. You are stronger than you think.
Take it one day at a time. Try to focus on the good things that happen to you, and keep a diary of things that make you happy.
First off for some of us it doesn't have an end. For people like me it is genetic and it will always be there. I didn't even know that happiness was a real thing until i started taking medication about 5 years ago. Before that I honestly thought that happiness was a lie that people told me about just to make the pain of depression worse. Sadly the meds stopped working and after cycling through a dozen different prescriptions over the course of 4 years, until nothing works anymore, I'm back to living with depression. Fortunately for most people therapy and medications can work and can solve the problem, but the trick is you have to fight and fight hard. As embarrassing as being labeled with depression and feeling weak may be watching depression take everything from you is worse. Depression is a liar. It will tell you you are broken stupid and worthless. Recognize that thinking and consciously make the choice to manipulate it. For some you might be able to just call it a liar and ignore it, but if you are like me you will have to trick it. When it tells you you are stupid agree with it and tell it you are so stupid that you need to go to a doctor. When it tells you you will fail tell it you want to try harder so you can fail harder and make it hurt more. As crazy as this sounds if you have the relentless kind of depression i do your depression will motivate you to get it done. It's not pleasantly mind you, but watching this monster that has been ruining your life clean your house and get stuff done it can be genuinely satisfying. Which is about as close as someone like me gets to being happy while not medicated.
Depression is a kind of act that people do when they're in a kind of problem that these people cannot handle well. If Depression is caused by problems occurring that is/are too difficult to face, then depression must has an end. because problems itself has an end, so I would say, depression too, has an end. ending the problem could just end the depression
It doesn't always, but most of the time/for most people it does. And it's hard to see a way out, a brighter future, a better life after depression, because depression clouds your mind with darkness and hopelessness. But you have to believe that you deserve a happier life and that it will get better in time.
Huum...that's a really hard one to answer ...i guess i would just say that everything has an end. Good or bad, nothing lasts forever. We are humans, we we're made to just come up with new and better ways to deal with our bad situations. As far as depression goes, i would say that once you decide that you don't want to be depressed anymore it's really just a matter of time and support until one day, you won't even remember what it was like to suffer from it.
Depression is just a long tunnel. A tunnel always has an end. If you think it doesn't, then it's just a longer one than expected.
By talking to people who have been through what you're going through and come out of the other end, they're proof that it can be done.
Knowing that the path to recovery often fluctuates should put feelings of hopelessness into perspective
Start searcjing for people that have been throigh the same as you, seeing that others overcome will make you see that you can overcome too
It doesn't. Well, at least not really. Depression is a cycle, it is divided into seasons and spins continually. There is no end though there is a break through that circle. You must convince yourself that the end is where the cycle is broken and you are free.
Emotions come and go. Happiness or sadness will eventually fade away. It is a temporary feelings that we all experience.
When you start to view life on the brighter side. As you engage yourself if new opportunities you will find the depression lessening little by little.
Depression is very challenging and you feel like it does not have an end. Right now you are unable to see the light at the end is the depression tunnel.
I can understand depression has an end when I look to my future and see happiness. No longer feeling in the dark and being positive.
It is good to understand the illness itself and getting the right treatment. It might also be an idea to listen to others who have gone through the same illness and have recovered from the illness. This can assure you that there really is light at the end of the tunnel.
The way I think about how things have and end is imaging that everything around you including your thoughts are fluid, they're ever changing and never stay the same, sometimes they change slowly and sometimes quickly but never stay the same. I hope this helps
All things come to an end. Depression felt like a bottomless pit of emptiness. It was draining to pretend and take extra steps to be able to have a part in society, especially in school. It did not come suddenly, but I felt lively again. It felt like a miracle then, but I realize now it had to have ended no matter what. Depression is not the sufferer's fault. Color will come back to you.
