It is also normal during your teen years to feel at a loss, like you have no place in the world and no one understands you. You might end up hurting yourself, crying a lot and even feeling miserable. Hang in there, give yourself time.
But sometime there is no apparent reason to feeling down. You feel like your life has no meaning, you are tired, nothing matters. Things that seemed important yesterday are irrelevant today. Everything is irrelevant today. You feel tired, oh so tired. You feel like your heart imploded, like your best friend died, your parents died, like you died. But they didn’t.
How do you fix that? How do you fix feeling desperate when there is no cause to feeling desperate?
I am lucky not to suffer of depression, but I have people in my life whom I love dearly and who lost their ability to function, to speak, to love. Depression is real. If you don’t understand it, you’re lucky. Don’t make a fool of yourself by trivializing somebody else’s struggle.
Understand. Support. We are one.
