Times are tough

The past couple of days my depression has increased quite a bit. I don’t know what to do to fight it. Most people would go to somebody to talk or hang out, but I have nobody. I just sit at home, by myself, feeling miserable. I feel really discouraged because it doesn’t appear to be getting any better. I’m lost, I don’t know what to do, and the worst part of all is that nobody gives a fuck. All I see is darkness right now.

Hey thanks for sharing on here.

You can always reach out on here and express how you’re feeling. This community does a great job helping one another.

Not sure what your interests are exercise and reading helps me. Motivational videos on YouTube, FB, etc.

To me, there’s always gunna be some rough times but I always try to remember what I’m grateful for and to hang in there.

Hey man,

It’s the worst to feel like you’re at your lowest point and no one’s there to care or notice or help. Sucks to feel like you’re getting crushed under the weight of this onslaught of numbness and depression and heaviness. It can be so brutal. And today, it feels just that.

I know what that’s like, and I know what it’s like to scroll through my phone and feel like literally no one on my list gives a rip what I’m going through.

And I’ve been going through some tough times in my recovery from my addiction to porn lately, and I get tempted all the time to believe that no one cares, that no one wants to listen, that no one wants to help.

But you know – I think it’s that very thought that buries us deeper and that keeps us stuck in these dark places…it’s not that no one cares, it’s that we FEAR that no one cares. And so many times when I’ve given others the chance to pick up my phone call and listen to me and support me, Ive been pleasantly surprised, and the very act of receiving love from someone else has been so healing. Additionally, it helps me air out my thoughts and work out of the hole of lies that I’d been stuck in and move towards the truth.

I gotta challenge you to step out of isolation man, whatever the cost is…no matter how many voicemails you have to hit, no matter how many people you have to dial. We’re sunk if we try to go this life alone. We need each other. We were made for each other. Push through the lies that no one will care, and reach out!

Hey @jmatt0659,

I agree with Nate. As hard as it is to reach out, it will be worth it to do so. When we are depressed, it can seem like no one cares. But that is a part of the lie depression is telling you. You may feel that way, but our feelings aren’t necessarily the truth.

Believe us when we say, “You aren’t alone”. Because you aren’t. We are here for you.
