I'll let you in on a little secret, not everybody is happy all the time, and the people who are, well they are on some kind of high dosage of medication. If you sit around and concentrate on the bad things in your life, then of course, that would be depressing to anyone. You can't tell me that there is nothing good in your life, no matter how small. Do you use drugs of any kind, b-cuz they can play a major role in bringing you down.

Report as
OK, you said you've changed into a better person. What was wrong with the previous you?

idk i was a person that didnt care about no one. and never listened to my paretns or any adults and was very disrespectful to everyone. and my grades were super bad. but the old me had a handle on her emotions. i dont nowadays
Report as
It sounds to me like you used to ignore everything, so the illusion that you were in control of your emotions was easy to fake. The world is a little different when you start to look around and take notice. I lived in a drug and alcohol haze for 17 years and the whole time I didn't think there was anything really wrong anywhere. Now that I'm cleaned up, I realize all the things I had been neglecting.

it seems like my whole life is spinning out of control though. its like ever since things at home got worse the whole world seemed to crash down

Idk what that is like but my "best" friend turned on me, my parents got divorced if need be find a good outlet to you'd anger ie video games, a sport or something
Report as
i found that an outlet supresses it. my outlet is my talent of singing, and i also write poems. and trust me that "best friend" thing.. they dont exsist. my dad is somehwere on the west coast while im on the east coast and my step father is an angry accholic and it can be hell cause they are on the verge of divorse to, but he cant and wont leave till my specail needs sisters are grown up enough to not miss him

being me doesnt matter. their never around to see what ive accomplished in life

Missing out on your accomplishments is something your family will regret and feel bad about with time, dont dwell on it. Just try to let them see it hurts you.

they dont care. they have no faith in me

Girl, ignore those bad thoughts. Ignore the bad comments. Keep your chin up and do something for yourself. Make yourself feel better. Things get better, really they do. Its just harder for anything to seem better.. if you only think about how bad things seem. Someone will always be in a worse situation than you, so be thankful for what you do have. Don't let your head fall, just keep going. If people are making you feel worse, try talking to them.. or.. surround yourself with different people, and try not to let your parents or family get to you. More than likely they want you to feel better, they just don't know how or what to say to express that to you.. so they give you tough love (just a guess, I dont know your situation)

Oh dear! Well, I don't necessarily agree with NAFTA on this one, as far as constant happiness being a side-effect of medication. I, personally, am happy nearly all of the time, but it took me many years to achieve such a state, and I highly doubt it will last forever, as everyone goes through rough patches in their life. Many people, myself included, have gone through such phases in their life as relatives hating them, child abuse, externally inflicted attempts on their life, the death of a close friend or relative, etc. The secret is to face those conflicts head on. You're on the right track- someday, you'll be able to move away from those people, and make whatever you want out of your own life. Don't let that chance pass you by because of a few rude people! Keep holding on. Take up a hobby you can do to ease your mind, or reach out to people who have overcome the same situations. I wish you the absolute best of luck. I don't even know you, and I have no doubt that you can do this. Please believe in yourself as this community is proving to believe in you. Godspeed!

life isnt perfect.but by keeping a positive and looking on the bright side of everyting,life can improve.also,being closer to God helps.at times He could be ur only friend and the only one u can trust.thankfully i have a great family and everything,but if u remember God in ur happy times,He will remember u in ur sad times.and we all go through sad times.for some,its not a serious problem,for some,its terrible.also,ur a teenager.u still have a life ahead of u.if things r terrible now,doesnt mean they r not gonna improve.ur life cud turn around u know.

You shouldn't give up on life. Live for every moment even if it's with people are not. You are the way you want to be. Don't let other people get you down.

Well I understand where your coming forms some of my relatives have said very hurtful things to me and that's why I am how I am today as well as Insecure as I am but I also probably wouldn't be as helpful to others as considerate etc also your 17 your life with them could be over very soon and life could be the way you want it to be you need to realize you should live for yourself not any body else turn this negative energy into determination to do things you want to do and become successful prove them wrong maybe there jealous of you... Be happy you have the friends you have atleast as well not everybody has that I'f you need to talk more let me know

I agree, it seems when things are crappy,along comes more. The only real thing that can get you through it is changing the attitude you have. The way you view things, the way you respond can really change your life..Change your thinking.If you feel it is beyond this, I suggest talking to someone, a teacher.aunt, any adult who can lead you in the right direction. Good luck!

CrazyGirl, you can keep your head up and you will. Use that depressed energy and channel it. Study, go to Church, find a new hobby, dream of your future. I believe in you.

Dear all, I've been struggling with depression, consciously for about 3 to 4 years, unconsciously probably a lot longer. My whole attitude to life has changed and passions that once got me excited don't even register or create a smile, it's as if I'm dead inside. I've tried to read a lot of books on the universal law of attraction and NLP type stuff but to no real avail. I've even tried registering for an ancient indian meditation course (vipassana) to refocus the mind on what is and what is not but availability for places are hard to come by. I will strive to Carry on and try to create a world through my mind, these techniques are suppose to be key to us human beings it just society, education and media to name a few have suppressed us and ultimately brainwashed our way of thinking which enhances things like depression so we then as humans buy in to the medication which further restricts you but keeps you hooked whilst the pharmaceutical companies get rich. I havent articulated this very well at all and that's a sign of a jumbled brain. I wish all humans could escape the shackles of modern day strife and lv the life we were born/chose to have. Love and peace to all R.
