Yes, it will. Whatever it is, it will go away. Some of the best words are "This time, it will not last". These words are really powerful. They make you feel nostalgic in happy moments and hopeful and happy in sad times.

Everything gets better. You have to hit rock bottom before pushing up and rising to the top. Sometimes it takes a good fall to know where you stand. :)

Everything will always get better. Life is full of ups and downs, it is, in a metaphorical sense, a rollercoaster ride. When you feel down, it is important to remain positive and to look forward to the good things you have in life. Do not dwell on the negatives, but focus on the positives.

Yes. Of course. It gets better. It feels hard, but soon that will go away. But you need to meet half way for it to go away. Don't ever sit there expecting it will disappear naturally, you need to put 50% in to help it go away as fast as it can. This is the best medicine :)

Depression is hard to get through but if you have faith, hope, strength and self belief it will make a difference because you want this depression to go away and you believed that it will go away, so it will, if you do these four things that I talked about in the beginning, it won't make a big difference but they helped me when I had depression

Life is a roller-coaster. You will find yourself going up and down in life but it isn't about how hard you get hit, it's about how hard you get hit and KEEP moving forward. Everything will always get better, with time.

Yes it will, you're just being locked up by your thoughts that it will never go away, but in fact when you'll find something interesting and tried to pursue it you'll forget some of this negative you possess.

Try not to feel overwhelmed, it always feels that way during. You've probably heard many people say, "It gets better," and that's because it does. Give it time and connect to resources like 7 Cups (and its guides: and counsellors in your area, and it will get better :)

learn to find a positive in a negative by truly searching from within a situation. Stop looking at what is in front of you and realize that things could be worst if.......?

of course it will go away... But remember that it really depends upon your decision and the efforts that you put in to make it go away...

It might do at this moment in time but it can get better. There is always a light at the end of a very dark tunnel even if you aren't able to see it just yet.

Pain always goes away, I wouldn't beat yourself up about not being okay straight away because thing's like this take time.

There are ways to keep your anxiety down but, for anxiety to be truly treated I recommend seeing a therapist.

I promise it will really. I have been there so I know how it feels, but trust me when I tell you that it goes away. It went away for me and it make take 1 month, 5 months or a year for you but it will go away when the time is right. Without the trials and tribulations of life, we wouldn't be where and who we are today.

I know it may seem like it will never go away, but I promise it does. Everything takes time, but somethings take a little longer than others. The most important thing to remember is that you are never alone because we'll always be here for you no matter what :) We can be your support system when you need one. Always

It DOES get better. everyone needs to know that. time heals all wounds. some slower than others. just hang in there! everything will work out i promise!
January 7th, 2016 6:14pm
Of course, with effort and time, anything can be healed. You might feel very down or upset right now, but personally, when I'm sad, I reflect on when I was happy. Just as what goes up must come down, what goes down must go back up again :)

It will, if it is serious you should look for a professional help. I had same problem, but now I can tell you that it can pass.

Nothing is going to stay with you forever. Remember either happiness or sadness don't ever last long.
January 8th, 2016 5:03pm
It will, in time.Always find something to do that relaxes you, like drawing, painting, listening to music, go out for a walk.Avoid stressful situations and remain positive.
January 9th, 2016 6:54pm
well nothing fully ever goes away But it does get easier to deal with/you get a whole lot stronger .
January 10th, 2016 6:17am
It will, there is always a sunshine after rain. Like there is always joy and comfort after pain, so dont worry, it will!
January 10th, 2016 1:58pm
everything goes away if you had patience and a helping hand ... have a good friend .. or a listenner

If you firmly believe it will go away and you seek the professional help you need to be treated, then you have the best possible chance at making it go away. If you do nothing, it surely will not go away.

I was 14 the first time I realized I was depressed, I thought it would go away in a few years at most. 12 years later and it's become part of life for me. I don't think it ever goes away, but you do learn to manage it. And because people like us have to fight a silent battle every day of our lives, I think we are some of the strongest people out there. That goes for all mental illness.

It's hard to believe, but it will. Sometimes I'm asking myself the same thing. I mean, aren't we all? But I believe the most important thing for any hard part of our lives is to always have someone you can talk to and who will be able to calm you down and help you see world of your suffering in totally different way. Once you start looking at everything more realistic you'll find out that everything will pass one day. You just have to be very patient. It's not easy but it's not impossible.
January 13th, 2016 7:48pm
With hard work and effort and help from a professional, yes. These terrible things can go away and things will start looking up.
January 13th, 2016 7:52pm
It depends. It may not but it will get better and bearable to live with. Stay stong and just believe.
January 14th, 2016 12:17am
It will go away. Don't worry. :) It gets better. Things change, usually for the better with age, so just hold on.

If you let it stay, it's not gonna move. And it's not gonna break either, only physical objects age and disintegrate. You're the agent of change in your life.
