Yes, I'm Depressed

I won't deny that I'm depressed 
because there is really no point in lying. 
If you look in my eyes, you'll see the pain
and how I've grown worn from fighting a losing battle. 
My lips used to form a smile
that would blow people away and I was always told
that my smile was beautiful and filled with joy,
but now these lips have grown numb
from letting hopeless pleas
slip from between the crevice they form.
My arms used to be clear of scars
until I fell apart and gave into my pain 
all those months ago when I just broke into pieces.
Now they have old scars from long
battles that I tried hard to win 
but ended up being defeated. 

I refuse to deny my depression
and I see no point in hiding my past pain
because I am human and sadness is human.
I've recently come to the realization depression
isn't always bad. 
It's only bad when people give in to the point
where they can no longer stand back on their feet.
Depression is a form of sadness 
that just yearns to be felt by us 
lonely creatures walking along the face of this
broken world that is drenched in sin and hate.
Depression is a human feeling. 
It's just a feeling and it's okay to feel depressed.
It's not the depression that is bad,
it's the giving in to the pain that causes
all the problems associated with the sadness. 

I am okay with being depressed
because I know that one day I'll be happy again,
that I can feel an overwhelming peace from God,
and that things will get better in due time.
I will not fight my depression;
instead, I will accept the sadness
and I will battle against the desire to give in
to the pain thrown at me. 
Depression is something every human feels
and it's not something that needs to be 
despised and hated
because our sadness and our battles against pain
is what makes us stronger.
I'd rather be strong than to be weak,
so I shall embrace the struggle and grown.

Yes, I'm depressed.
I've come to realize that depression is merely a form of sadness and is not something that is wrong with anyone. It's okay to be depressed, but it is NOT okay to give in to the pain you feel. Instead, battle your pain and get stronger through each victory. With God on your side, you can be even stronger. 

So, yes, I am depressed and I am okay with that. But I will fight my pain and not give in.

go to God. it's all I can say. I'd have died long ago, I'm sure, if I didn't have him. Believe and trust.

I know what depression feels like. In fact, i was depressed for 3 long years, because of some things that were constantly happening.(i think you know what i mean)
Depression is the knife that stabs your heart. But you have to learn to draw your blade and counter that knife.

You should try talking to someone of trust and tell that person how you feel.If you want, send me a note anytime. I will do my best to help you. ^^

I've been depressed for a year, and as soon as things got better...everything came crashing down once more.
Honestly, right now...I'm not very trusting of anyone.
But I may take you up on your offer.

It happened to me too. Twice. Just as i tought things were going to get better from a certain point onward, it all came crashind down again. I too did not trust anyone. Not even my friends. I hid everything from everyone. My only companion was my own silence. Last year, around August, i came to see a psychologist. I did not trust her at first, because i tought the idea of telling your secrets and feelings to a stranger was complete nonsense. But now, i feel much better and i finally feel safe to give my trust to others once more. I can say my life now is a sea of roses! 

And if you do take my offer, it would make me really happy. I enjoy helping others. ^v^

This is the fourth time it's happened for me. I'm not very trusting anymore. ^^;
