Overcoming Depression Quotes With Images
#1. It is a common misconception that depression means being sad, or crying a lot, or dressing ’emo’ to be dramatic, to show sadness. It is a lot more than that. Depression is feeling numb to emotions, feeling numb to everything in life.
#2. Depression is feeling numb all the time. This feeling may become very overpowering at times. You hold on to life as if it were the only thing which is making you go through your day.
#3. You might feel so exhausted and overwhelmed from everything in life that you describe yourself as being ‘tired’ constantly. Not even resting or sleeping may help you fix this feeling.
#4. Colourblindness is a deficiency in the way we perceive colours. Depression is like colourblindness as people only see one side of the world and getting indulged in their own thinking. Like colourblind people are consistently being told how colourful the world is in reality, depressed people also are told how the world is much more than solely their thoughts.
#5. Every person wants to heal, to feel better. So to say they ‘battle’ depression rather than saying that they ‘suffer’ from depression helps them deal and cope with it better, and will motivate them to always fight back.
#6. Most of the times, people may feel inadequate, not enough. They feel that they are not enough for others, which may make them feel useless, like broken things. They feel that they have no utility anymore because they feel dispirited.
#7. Depression engulfs all your thoughts. The world seems like a dark place, with no hope, no light. Other things which seemed interesting once now seem dull and hopeless.
#8. Feelings seem vague, everything seems dreary. You feel like doing nothing, and somehow that feeling is the only thing you seem to understand.
#9. You may look happy to others. You may laugh at jokes, dance with others, sing along to songs, but inside, you still feel sad. Internally, you still feel lifeless.
#10. During your battle with depression, it is important to remember that someday, sometime you will feel better. Someday you would feel awake and alive instead of wanting to feel awake and alive.
Things may be bad right now. You may seem stuck in it. You may have cried for days, wished for it be different, but just not the way it is. You may feel hopeless now. You may be holding on to anything which makes you go through the day. But promise, this isn’t how it is going to be forever. Keep going, keep fighting. Hope these depression quotes help you to fight with depression and anxiety.
