Depression feels like being stuck at the bottom of a well.
People look down and shout “It’s okay, just stay positive”. But there are no ropes or ladders they can offer.
They tell you there are other people in the well just like you, but you can’t see them through the darkness. Even if you could, they’re in no position to help you.
They offer to throw down pills, that will help you forget the well. But you’ll still be in it.
They smile and say “Look how many people are here to support you.” But all distant faces just make you feel worse.
You’re just at the bottom of the well, surrounded by darkness, feeling alone. You look up at the small circle of light surrounded by sympathetic grins, but you know you can never get there. It’s just taunting you.
It’s been over a year…
But as soon as I type the letter “S” in the search bar, Facebook knows exactly who I want to see..
One picture is still enough to bring back every memory and bring me to tears…
And I still can’t find a single person I love more than you.
apparently the key to happiness is to have a long and shitty winter
and if you can’t have that, surround yourself with deadly wildlife
or maybe these countries have free or reasonably priced health care, good education and costs nothing or very little, marriage equality(not all do however on the list but they at least aren’t extremely homophobic either), decent minimum wages, stable economies, low crime rates and so forth and also deadly wildlife because we protect our environment
Or maybe they’re not in debt.
