Introduction (Sort Of)
Posted 09 September 2012 - 03:44 PM
Secretly I hope that this site can provide me with some type of magic bullet of eternal joy and bliss, but that remains to be seen.
I'll start with introducing myself: the name's BlueEros. Let me clarify why I picked that name: Blue, because.. well blue is obviously
a metaphor for depression, but it's also because I like the color. I'm also a male, so that makes three explanations haha. The Eros part
refers to, if anyone is familiar with, the ancient Greek god of Love. I'm a firm believer in love and want to spread as
much as I can, to as many people as possible.
But I'm depressed, how is that possible? I could ramble about my horrible past, but I won't. I'm just depressed, and unfortunately
comfortable there. So the task now is to move my comfort zone to the happy side.
Do you think I will make it?

I encourage you to see a doctor about your depression, as it is very treatable with the right meds. Therapy may also really help you.
Please make yourself feel at home here, take a look around the site, and post wherever you feel most comfortable.

I understand about the comfort zone. When I'm happy I tend to wait to crash and burn. Now I try to seek more "inner peace with moments of happiness." It's more within my reach. I do believe it's possible and I'm much better off than I was, but I'm not quite there yet.
Hoping to hear more from you on your journey here.
All the best,

“Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won't die. You will come to life. And don't be concerned
with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it's their problem.”
