“If I can’t feel, if I can’t move, if I can’t think, and I can’t care, then what conceivable point is there in living?” - Kay Redfield Jamison, An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness
Depression is a feeling of unimportantness and hopelessness. It can be accompanied by tight muscles, limited movement, or a lack of energy. Despite the common symptoms, many people with depression believe that they can't feel or move any better. To some, this might be the most difficult thing to understand. To others, it might be the reason they don't want to get help. Regardless of why someone may feel this way, there is no arguing that living is important.
“The difference between hope and despair is the ability to believe in tomorrow.” - Jerry Grillo

“You cannot change anyone but yourself. Always hope for the best, but keep living your life no matter what.” - Kate Anderson
When it comes to change, there is no definitive answer. Everyone has their own unique quirks and habits, which means that even if you try to change somebody else, they will still be themselves – at least in their own eyes. This can be a difficult mindset to maintain, especially when life feels like it's constantly getting harder. But with the right attitude and relentless optimism, you can achieve anything – even if your current situation seems insurmountable.
“Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any misery, any depression, since after all you don’t know what work these conditions are doing inside you? Why do you want to persecute yourself with the question of where all this is coming from and where it is going? Since you know, after all, that you are in the midst of transitions and you wished for nothing so much as to change. If there is anything unhealthy in your reactions, just bear in mind that sickness is the means by which an organism frees itself from what is alien; so one must simply help it to be sick, to have its whole sickness and to break out with it, since that is the way it gets better.” - Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
Many people want to shut out of their lives because they believe that it will make them feel better. However, shuttering yourself from life can actually make you feel worse. The more you withdraw from life, the more you will be able to focus on your depression and its treatments.
“There is hope, even when your brain tells you there isn’t.” - John Green
Depression is a common problem, and there is hope even when your brain tells you there isn't anything you can do.

There are many different ways to live a happy life, and those that work best for you will be the ones that work best for you.
“There is no person in this whole world who is a mistake, no matter how different that person may seem.”- Fred Rogers
Everyone has different successes and failures in life. Sometimes people look at others and say that they are a mistake, no matter how different they may seem. However, there is no person in this whole world who is a mistake, no matter how different that person may seem. Everyone has different goals and dreams, and everyone makes mistakes along the way. No one is perfect, and no one deserves to be looked down upon for it.
“No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun - for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax - This won’t hurt” - Hunter S. Thompson
As we near the end of our 67th year, it’s time to face the truth that life has become too monotonous. So much has changed since then, and yet so much remains the same. The days feel like they last forever and the nights are endless. It feels like everyone we know is either dead or gone.
“I am a work in progress.”- Violet Yates
Work in progress is one of the most difficult things about life. It can be hard to keep up with the ever-changing schedule, and when you feel like you're not doing anything to support yourself and your loved ones, it's even harder. This can lead to low self-esteem, a lack of motivation, and a feeling of beingelessness. It's all too easy to give up on ourselves, but there are ways to fight off depression and make progress in your life.
“You don’t have to live a lie. Living a lie will mess you up. It will send you into depression. It will warp your values.” - Gilbert Baker

“I didn’t eat. I stayed in my room. I was in a really bad place in life, going through that lonely period: ‘Who am I? Who are friends? My life changed.'” - Beyonce

“It doesn’t get better,” I said. “The pain. The wounds scab over and you don’t always feel like a knife is slashing through you. But when you least expect it, the pain flashes to remind you you’ll never be the same.” - Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits
There is something about the hurt that never seems to go away. It can be physical, emotional, or even spiritual. Sometimes it feels like no matter how much you try, the wounds will stay open and raw.

This fear is often perpetuated by social norms that dictate that thinking about death or suicide in any form is inappropriate.
“Some of the most comforting words in the universe are ‘me too.’ That moment when you find out that your struggle is also someone else’s struggle, that you’re not alone, and that others have been down the same road.” - Unknown
There are moments when you realize that you are not alone in your struggles. These moments of comfort are what make the world go round. Somewhere in the universe, someone is also struggling, and you can find comfort in that.
“Depression on my left, Loneliness on my right. They don’t need to show me their badges. I know these guys very well.” - Elizabeth Gilbert
There are many factors that contribute to depression, loneliness, and anxiety. But one thing that is often missing from these discussions is the fact that people on the left and right sides of the political spectrum can also be affected. left-leaning politicians and pundits often talk about how loneliness is a social problem that needs to be addressed. right-leaning politicians and pundits often talk about how depression needs to be addressed. While both positions may have some truth to them, they ultimately miss the point.

It allows us to see the big picture and make better decisions based on that information.

This is why, even though there are still many challenges left to overcome, I believe that there is still progress to be made.

“Let this time in your life cut you open and drain all of the things that are holding you back. I’m going to help you forgive the things that you won’t let yourself forget.”- Jennifer Elisabeth
It's been said that time is the healer of all wounds. In some ways, this may be true-time can stop the bleeding and help to cleanse a wound. However, in other ways, time can only hurt.

“The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honor trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then - to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing that the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” - T.H. White, The Once and Future King
"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, his voice filled with determination, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. No matter how old and frail your body becomes, no matter how your restless mind keeps you awake at night, no matter if you have lost your one true love or witnessed the world crumbling around you due to the actions of deranged individuals, or even if your honor is trampled upon by those with lesser minds. In times like these, there is only one solace - to learn. Learn about the intricate workings of the world, and understand what drives it forward. This pursuit of knowledge is the one thing that can never be exhausted, never be taken away, never be tortured, never be feared or doubted, and never be regretted. Learning is the ultimate refuge. Just look at the vast expanse of knowledge waiting to be explored."

“Killing oneself is, anyway, a misnomer. We don’t kill ourselves. We are simply defeated by the long, hard struggle to stay alive. When somebody dies after a long illness, people are apt to say, with a note of approval, “He fought so hard.” And they are inclined to think, about a suicide, that no fight was involved, that somebody simply gave up. This is quite wrong.” - Sally Brampton, Shoot the Damn Dog: A Memoir of Depression
People often think of suicide as a way out of a difficult situation, but this is not really the case. Suicide is actually a misnomer, because it is actually a way we are defeated by the long, hard struggle to stay alive. When somebody dies after a long illness, people are apt to say, with understatement, that he or she “died from” or “was killed by” the illness.

“And I felt like my heart had been so thoroughly and irreparably broken that there could be no real joy again, that at best there might eventually be a little contentment. Everyone wanted me to get help and rejoin life, pick up the pieces and move on, and I tried to, I wanted to, but I just had to lie in the mud with my arms wrapped around myself, eyes closed, grieving, until I didn’t have to anymore.” - Anne Lamott, Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son’s First Year
And we felt like our heart had been so thoroughly and irreparably broken that there could be no real joy again, that at best there might eventually be little contentment. Our lives appeared to have ended, but in reality they had just transitioned into a new chapter. The pain was still there, but it was hardly comparable to the devastation of when our hearts were shattered.
“Even when the world throws its worst and then turns its back, there is still always hope.” - Pittacus Lore
Hope is the strategy that we use to try and face the darkness. It is the belief that there is still some light at the end of the tunnel.

We have to keep looking for the good in life so that we can continue living a happy and fulfilling life.
“If they tell you that she died of sleeping pills you must know that she died of a wasting grief, of a slow bleeding at the soul.” - Clifford Odets

“My mother, poor fish, wanting to be happy, beaten two or three times a week, telling me to be happy: “Henry, smile! Why don’t you ever smile?” and then she would smile, to show me how, and it was the saddest smile I ever saw” - Charles Bukowski
Our mother is poor and wants to be happy. She spends most of her time trying to make us happy, but we feel that we're never good enough. We constantly wonder if we'll ever be able to be happy. Our mother makes us feel like we're not good enough and that our lives are meaningless.
“Depression doesn’t take away your talents-it just makes them harder to find.” - Lady Gaga
Depression can take away your talents. It can make you less curious and more content with what you have. It can make you less competitive and more content with who you are.

Mental pain is more common and difficult to deal with the condition than physical pain. The attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden, as it is easier to say "My tooth hurts." Mental pain can be harder to bear, as it replicates the physical pain in that it can feel unbearable. However, mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, and often times people are unaware of the true scale of the problem.
“There is nothing to save, now all is lost, but a tiny core of stillness in the heart like the eye of a violet.”- D.H. Lawrence

“Depression weighs you down like a rock in a river. You don’t stand a chance. You can fight and pray and hope you have the strength to swim, but sometimes, you have to let yourself sink.

Without them I would never have disappeared into language, literature, the mind, laughter and all the mad intensities that made and unmade me.” - Stephen Fry, Moab Is My Washpot

“The worst type of crying wasn’t the kind everyone could see-the wailing on street corners, the tearing at clothes.

“When you come out of the grips of a depression there is an incredible relief, but not one you feel allowed to celebrate. Instead, the feeling of victory is replaced with anxiety that it will happen again, and with shame and vulnerability when you see how your illness affected your family, your work, and everything left untouched while you struggled to survive. We come back to life thinner, paler, weaker … but as survivors. Survivors who don’t get pats on the back from coworkers who congratulate them on making it. Survivors wake to more work than before because their friends and family are exhausted from helping them fight a battle they may not even understand. I hope to one day see a sea of people all wearing silver ribbons as a sign that they understand the secret battle, and as a celebration of the victories made each day as we individually pull ourselves up out of our foxholes to see our scars heal, and to remember what the sun looks like.” - Jenny Lawson

It started out as a simple case of a cat scratching our dog. But it quickly escalated into something more. The cat was getting bigger and more powerful and would start attacking our dog.

And it wasn't just our dog that was being attacked- our own cats too!
