Why am I feeling so depressed lately?

I just started crying all of a sudden and told my friend I was upset because someone had done something to me a LONG time ago. I had gotten over it a while ago but then I started crying again. What should I do?

Whatever happened to you a while ago, is still affecting you. Maybe all of a sudden your emotions are running high because this could possibly be around the same time that incident from the past occurred, Or either because you never truly opened up and talked to someone about it and it's starting to take a toll on you. It's hard to say when you really don't know the situation.

Well, I have been feeling as if there is a boatload of pressure on me. I mean, I get nervous about my outfit every single day and I just feel like everything needs to be perfect and I keep telling myself that I'll never be perfect and it brings me down.
And then I have a bunch of family problems to worry about and everything and I feel like nothing is going to work out for me. I ripped open pages of my journals and diaries and was about to throw them away but stopped myself. Is this depression or something else?

You honestly need to let it all out. Your holding in things, and it's tearing you up in the process. I would honestly say try finding someone you can really trust, just let it all out. Or you can go ask you patents to take you to a psychologist. I always kept things bottled up inside, I had very bad trust issues, and felt like no one would understand what I was going through. I held it all inside, and I felt like I was dying at the same time. I finally let a close friend in and told her everything after I broken and cried because words couldn't explain how I felt. I know it sounds corny, but talking really does help.

I just don't know who to talk to though. I feel like because of my depression I've been drifting more and more away from my friends, and I don't want my parents to know about this since I already am in deep trouble with them and I don't want to get it in deeper. I just don't know where I can let it out though, I feel like I'm alone in an empty room.

You have to try to over come your depression, and reach out to your friends or a friend. Trust me one this, bottling things up inside only makes everything 10x worse. I also feel hiding this from your parents maybe a bad idea. Even if your in a lot of trouble with them, I'm more then positive your well being comes first to them. If you really don't want your parents knowing, reach out to a friend. But I wouldn't hide this from them if you still feel this way or if it gets worse over the next couple of days or weeks.

Okay, I guess I could try to reach out to talk to a friend, but I guess I just don't know who to talk to. All of my friends are really involved in their own business and I don't think they'd have time to get into mine or they won't really care. Thanks so much for the advice. :)

You'll never really know until you try, and no problem. I hope you get better. :)

You're just stressed, talk it out with a sibling, or a guy friend, sorry but girls either don't care or act too dramatic unless you're related... But don't hold it in, and you don't have to wait until you're alone:/ sorry, good luck I hope you feel better!

Well I don't think any of my guy friends would care though.

That's actually not true, guys tend to be better at hiding feelings, but try talking to them, go up to one and just say "I need to vent!" they may not be able to give good advice, but they don't gossip, and they can usually make you laugh, or at least smile, give it a try:) you just need to get it out!

Well I'm not close with any of them and I feel that if I tell them my feelings they wouldn't know what to do.

Do you have a sibling? And I know this isn't related, but you should try to get close with a couple, they really do make excellent best friends:)
