There's always a light at the end of the tunnel, just some tunnel's are longer than others. God gives the toughest battles to his strongest warriors. You wouldn't know what happiness felt like until you felt pain. You wouldn't know relief felt like until you felt stress. It's going to end, maybe not today, but it will. And after it ends something great is waiting for you.

I know this feeling, I know how painful it can be, but trust me there is an old adage which actually heals everything and that is TIME HEALS EVERYTHING. Everything passes away, nothing is permanent, its all a transitionary period. What you are going through will also pass away. The question is not really if it will go because it will, it has to, the more important question is when will it go which shall depend on your coping skills.

If you want it to go away… it will go away. You just need to believe it will go away. Have hope, and have faith.

No, it wont go away, the memory will stay with you forever, but the pain will lessen and you will learn to accept it and ignore it.

If you are thinking about a memory or feelings, perhaps things won't change that quick. Visualize your memory or feelings,. Do you have anything with you that is related to these feelings? If yes, then will keeping these souvenirs help you or do they trigger a negative response? In either case, keep them in a box, some place where you can check on them time to time and learn from them or cherish them. Learn to value each day that you have. Do something new everyday. Involve your self in work and find ways to cheer yourself up. You have the biggest responsibility of keeping you happy. Don't give up on yourself. In stead of running away, face these feelings and thoughts and slowly accept them. Acceptance is moving on not escapism.

I know it feels that way, that the pain will always be there, but in most cases it will pass with time. Until it does please love yourself the best you can, and reach out for support from friends and/or family if possible. Come back to 7 Cups frequently to chat with someone. If you need more support -- or your pain lasts more than two weeks (or longer than you think you can stand) -- please seek out a professional counselor. But, in general, it WILL get better with the passage of time.

Of course it will! You can do anything you want, and anything is impossible! Just be patient and work hard! That doesn't mean it will be easy or you will see result fast but at least you're on a good way to it!

Depression is just like everything else. It will come to a passing. Even if it seems impossible even if it's holding on there for so long, it will go away, you just have to believe.

It will go away one day. You just need to be patient and fight for it! It really is worth fighting, so never give up.

It definitely will. I understand that sometimes it feels like the negativity around us will never really subside, but it gets easier over time. Everything is temporary, your feelings are temporary. Hang in there, you are not alone.

I know that feeling and it's awful. They say that the only way for the human brain to have hope is to know that the pain is going to end eventually, and if we can't tell that, that's when we become truly hopeless. But I promise you, everything that is good or bad comes to and end. "This too shall pass" and I promise, I promise you that it does get better. This will pass, this feeling will go away, you will come a wiser and a stronger person of it and eventually, you will learn to deal with this feelings in order than they can't stop you from living your life, cause that's what being happy means.

I am uncertain of whether what you are dealing with will go away. My motto is "Nothing lasts forever" including sorrow, and I hope that is the case. I don't know for certain what is going on in your life, so I can not absolutely say so.

Nothing lasts forever. Change is the only constant in our lives. Things can always get better, if there's something in your life you want to go away, work on getting it out of your life/head.

Sometimes before it gets better, the darkness gets bigger, but just just like a storm, dark times will pass, and the sun will shine again.

Things always get better, it may take months or even years. When I was in school i went through bullying and became really depressed, now that im out of school and on medications to control my depression, things are alot better!

This feeling does not last forever. It will go away. It may take some time, but you will get there. Don't lose hope.
October 23rd, 2014 1:41pm
it will. time heals everything. give it some time, whether is it 2 days or 2 years, it will definitely go away someday.
October 25th, 2014 9:25pm
Yes, time heals all wounds, it's a cliche saying, but it's one that's proven true for me time and time again, whether it's the loss of a family member, or a break-up, time won't fully take the pain away, but it'll make it, manageable, help you give it a place in your life, rather than allow it to take over completely.
October 29th, 2014 8:43pm
It really will. If you let it go away. It takes time and rethinking about your situation. Continuously feeling like it won't change may impede how quickly it can change for you. As well, letting yourself being able to express your displeasure about the situation also does add a positive effect on your body and mind for letting yourself get past it. Think of crying it out, or even breaking down as cleaning and reorganizing your emotions so you can handle the days better.

I believe it takes time to heal, and there's always time. I find that finding things to occupy myself with help a lot. Such as arts, or even taking a walk.
November 8th, 2014 3:41pm
It will go away. Time make things go away. I know it, I was so sad and then after I became happy, really, without reason, it was the same than before but my sadness had fade away.
November 17th, 2014 4:33pm
Well, you've been through something. It'll take time but with your family and your friends it maybe will go away. You just need to do something.
November 18th, 2014 3:22pm
Absolutely, you have to be gentle with yourself and allow yourself time. Time is key in recovery. You've got this!

The sun and moon both have phases and so do we. Only time will tell what the future holds. Perseverance is the key.

Nothing ever really goes away. The imprint is always there. What decisions you make going forward, however, become the new imprints.
November 9th, 2014 9:38pm
I understand your feeling trapped in thought. With time and patience you can achieve peace of mind.
December 19th, 2015 1:55am
trust me, whether you die or not, this time will pass. just let the time run then you will see
May 7th, 2015 10:14am
Dont feel hopeless.First of all you need to love yourself and know that everything happens for a good reason.
May 9th, 2015 2:09pm
I think it depends on how much you want it to go away. It hurts and it's difficult but if you believe that it will go away then it will.
