I hate the holidays

Recommended Posts

Everyone else is out doing what normal people do and I am sitting here by myself as usual. Just another reminder of how messed up I am.

I can relate. I have no friends, no family, no significant other. 

Even if I did i'd probably just push them away in an effort to protect them from my darkness.

I would just like to comment on the darkness mentioned above.

Emptiness and darkness seem to be a common recurring theme when describing depression.

Once I recognized that the deep, dark emptiness of depression was metaphorical I was able to come up with an EXIT strategy.

To me depression means being lost and trapped inside of myself.

I have learned to employ a cave metaphor to deal with this condition.

Depression plays some awful tricks on our psyches so I say we should play some clever tricks right back.

Life is too short to be lost in a metaphorical cave.

We can and must find our way out.

As the PP stated there is a way out of depression, we just have to decide that we want out and then start moving towards the light.  Depression can seem crippling, but once you start with the first step it gets easier to keep moving. I believe that once you reach that place where you are ready to come out, you will start the process. Life can be better for you! Its not easy but it is worth it and you are worth it.!
