TL;DR btw, I'm doing fine, I'm very happy right now I'm just writing from recent experience derp derp
A sinking, binding feeling which feels unescapable. Negative influences in our lives tend to magnify and become more important than all the positive moments that happened.
It feels as though nothing can lift us up at this point.
Depression is something that everyone feels at a point in their lifetime. The feeling of uselessness, that you can't handle what is going on -- an unbelievable amount of emotional stress. Sometimes even to the point where you feel like just going away would be a simpler choice.
I have been suffering from clinical depression (the more serious of the like) since I was a very, very young girl. Growing up, I felt so lonely -- everything I did was wrong and that nobody loved me.
Depression is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength. I remind myself that I am here and I have fought that monster for this long and that I am amazing.
I'll have my moments where I will feel, of course, depressed and down, but I have been doing a lot better now.
I just wish that other people around would understand that they are not alone. It feels that way, but they are not the only ones that feel such pain, and they are loved.
Drawing made me remember that I am good at what I do and that I do, in fact, have a purpose in life.
