It all depends on what "it" is. If "it" refers to a feeling, feelings go away. Of course, feelings are typically replaced by other feelings. If "it" refers to a situation, situations are always changing. You just have to let them. Things always get better. Things are constantly changing. When in doubt, just remember that every cell in your body is completely replaced every 7 years. You will be a completely different person 7 years from now. Just like you are a completely different person from how you were 7 years ago.

Maybe there are some things that sometimes, we felt like it will never go away... Because the struggling is always there. Just always remember that the life we have right now, all the bad things... Aren't temporary. Good things are yet to come. Bad things won't last a lifetime. It was established to make you a better person. ;)

It won't. But you will be able to learn how to give it a place and look back on in whenever you need it. Because it wil be something that you have fought with and won of.

It might not ever go away but it will be easier for you to find a way to deal with your feelings as you grow more accustomed to them.

"I find hope n d darkest of days & focus n d brightest. I do not judge d universe" Dalai Lama, when someone is in depression, it seems that it will never go away, never give up on hope,becasue we always hope for the best , and best things come on our way when we are positive about something,with time we will understand it will go away....

Eventually whatever you're going through will go away! Nothing lasts forever. Remember, life is like a bow and arrow. When life pulls you back into the darkness just know that it's about to launch you into the light.

Everything is temporary, It will go away over time or if you deal with your problem yourself. Be strong.

I assure that it will go away soon enough, unless you gave it all your best to achieve it being gone. the acceptance of what might happen and the lose of grip on fear, and with hope and a positive outlook it will really go away.

Since I don't know what "it" exactly is and I don't know you, I can't say - it's different from person to person, but in most cases it (at least) gets a whole lot better... you learn how to fight it, feel yourself growing stronger and more mature and see the results of struggle and feel better about yourself as you realize what you've overcome.

Everything moves forward, everything grows. Like leaves in the fall that drop and wither, but the tree survives the dark and cold months only to grow new leaves again, even though the new leaves will never be the same.. the tree preservers.

LET IT..AND IT WILL....FEAR IS NOTHING....WILL IS EVERYTHING..,The mind knows the truth when your heart denies what it feels...
December 25th, 2015 9:10pm
Yes, sweetie, it will. I know it feels like it will never go away, but trust me, it will. Just step out of those pretenses, worry less, laugh more, and have a little faith in God.

hey there, I would like to start by telling you that no pain lasts forever. Pain is something that comes and goes with time, and we as humans, we all can rebuild, recover, and continue to grow. Pain has a habit of demotivating and making us feel like it is here to stay. It beats us, controls us and in some causes, it causes us to inflict self pain. But it does not have to be this way. Pain, it can be beaten, by anybody. But the first step of beating depression, of beating anxiety, of beating a physical illness or any other mental illness is deciding within yourself that, you have had enough of this and you are going to do something about this. Stop fighting your pain for a moment, focus on your thoughts, your mentality to what ever is hurting you. Make that change and say to yourself ''right, I want to get better''. Only then you will be able to recover and continue to grow in this life. The world can offer you all the tools in the world to help you with your pain, but unless you, you say to yourself and convince yourself you can beat it, all of those tools will only be able to help numb the pain, not fix it. The way to make it go away, is to not allow the issues you have to control your thoughts. Kick it out. Take your life into your hands, and allow yourself to find happiness. The tools around , the people around you will help you, only if you let them. So, to finish off-yes, the pain does go away, all pain ends, physical and mental, but if you don't allow yourself to find happiness, and you don't believe in yourself. You will be fighting a long, continuous battle. I pray for the best for you, and i hope you find happiness x - Ty

The wounds will always be there, but just like wounds they heal over time. Just like all wounds they do leave scars, but they do heal.

honestly, eventualy maybe it'll take days, weeks, or even years, but it will go away in the end. but you should face it, the later you face it the longer it'll take.
December 26th, 2015 4:47pm
It will, only you are currently unable to see that it will. Time will always keep going forward, wether you like it or not. And wether you see the light at the end of the tunnel or not, eventually time will get you there and you'll notice it :)

This is going to be a super cliché answer. But yes, it does. It gets better. Time is your friend in all of this.

The anxiety we feel makes us feel restricted from participating in everyday activities. “I can’t go to the party because I’ll feel too out of place and uncomfortable."

Science says yes! Most depressed people do get better in time, even those who can't get help for one reason or another, although chances are better if you get the help you need. A typical depressive episode only lasts some months. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

It depends on you, if you try hard to make it go away,it wil go away. But if you do nothing about it it will never go away

Depression can go away with the right help and treatment. You have to figure out why you are experiencing depression first before you can expect it to go away. Also, understanding realistic expectations is important. It takes much time to feel better but the sooner you start the better!
December 30th, 2015 8:59am
Well, I couldn't tell you but it depends on you. I've struggled for years with depression and I haven't got out of yet but that doesn't mean I won't. You have to figure how to pull yourself out and maybe get some help if you need it. (:

Most pains are temporary, but love is forever. Remember that and it will get you through the hard times.
December 31st, 2015 9:33am
It will. As human beings, we have an incredible capacity to overcome almost anything. We are very resilient creatures. The pain you're experiencing right now may seem like it will never go away, but it will eventually. This too shall pass.
December 31st, 2015 5:14pm
It will go away and it will get better. There is light at the end of the dark tunnel of depression and you may not be able to see that right now but if you keep going you will get there and it will go away.
December 31st, 2015 10:52pm
It all depends on what you are talking about. Depression might if you deal with it correctly. This goes for anything that you might have problems with.

It may not full, but it is possible to get to a point where it won't control and/or define you.
