I think i met this girl on a dating site...constant whining about oneself, until they reveal they forgot to take their anti-psychotic meds...RUN AWAY!! women are such hypocrites-if a guy did this on a date, he'd be ostricized & laughed at.
Ouch. This hit way too close to home for me. I don't know if I should feel relieved that I'm not the only one, or devastated that this just seems to be what live is. Also, there's this thought that other people have it way worse than I do, having actual mental health diseases or shitty life situations in general and I'm sitting here bitching about my own thoughts.
I was just having one of those lovely chats with Mr. Depression and coming to the conclusion that the guy I've been going on a few dates with is really annoyed by my clingyness and bored by my personality. He cancelled the plans we had made for this weekend, so he must be trying to ghost me, right? He's just too polite to be blunt with me.
AND THEN, the guy literally send me the cutest text apologizing for not having been available and even calling me cute names and sending a kiss emoji and I'm really happy for like 5 seconds and then Mr. Depressions begins again: "Yeah right okay, but you know that he just did this because he feels bad for you? It's not like there's anything about you that would make him feel sorry about cancelling your plans. Again, he's simply being nice. You would actually be doing him a favour by breaking contact so that he won't have to."
Like.. what is this?! Why does this happen to us? And I know that most people deal with this and that it's not supposed to be an actual problem, but as she said, it makes me seclude myself from other people, it steals my energy, it eats me.
My heart dropped the moment I realised what was happening. The exact same thing happens to me, that condescending voice in your head that reasons with you, and is so logical and reasonable as well - even when it isn't. It's a struggle, but thankfully I found someone who knows exactly what the voice in my head feels like - he's got one too. Together we try and fight depression guy by telling each other about the real them, when we feel like our most authentic selves, and when we're not getting taken over by depression guy.
Just discovered this, and now I'm kinda creeped out because I was just thinking about my anxiety, depression and relationship issues in my head without searching anything about it online, and then Youtube recommended this to me...
But anyway, that ending hit me hard. I'm a good looking and pleasant guy who can be funny and clever, and numerous women have been interested in me, but then the voice in my head tells me I'm actually shitty and just imagining she likes me and then I just chicken out because I can't handle the thought of being rejected.
That's so sad and so True. Been there, done that.. too many times.
Thanks for this animation!
It's shows me i'm not the only one, who has that shitty relation or whatever it called with this hipster mustache person.
Good luck to everybody who feel this too .
I’d like a relationship or at least friends but whenever I go out and do something with someone I stay awake in bed for hours that night and think about some stupid insignificant thing I said and then try to never talk to them again
the way this is written sounds like a made up scenario you come up with at night when you cant sleep. both characters sound like the same person talking to themselves
this is not why dating with depression is hard, the reason why its hard its because you cant bring it up. best case scenario, your partner pities you. most likely you make the situation awkward and you cant handle awkward
Ever since I watched this, whenever I get ‘those thoughts’ they’ve started sounding like Depression Guy. And I’ve started picturing him there saying those things. Which, really makes it much easier to be like ‘up yours, you train track tattooed fuck. You’re just saying that to make me feel bad’
Like literally I’m lying in bed after a road trip, a fun one, and out of NOWHERE my brain starts bringing up everything I did today and how it might have seemed okay at the time but actually everything was wrong everyone is just repelled by everything I do and I should just figure out how to live away from people and at some point that voice morphed into depression guy and it kind of snapped me out of it. Like get fucked depression guy. You’re such an asshole.
(I’m still clinically depressed but not spiralling tonite so thanks lol)
Im so used to being invisible, forgotten, or /over looked that when this beautiful man said he liked my style on the dance floor last week I felt like he looked into my soul and for the rest of the night i could only 2 step and check myself in the mirror looking for the thing that made me different from everyone else.
elena plmr recognize when your “depression guy” is taking over and controlling your thoughts and making you go down the spiral, and combat them with what you know is true. For example, I went on a date with someone Thursday and it was the most wonderful date in the world and me and her have liked each other for years now so it was just..everything I could have dreamed of. But, my “depression guy” keeps getting in my mind and saying she’s gonna leave suddenly and that she just feels bad for me and that she doesn’t really wanna be with me. I have to talk myself through my emotions and what I know to be true constantly. And anyways, hope this helps at least a little bit. Also, talking out your feelings with a therapist, family, or a close friend also helps <3
I know this is a serious thing and stuff like that, but I personally am really, really enjoying watching this (i'm also not that far in, so I might stand corrected later on) and seeing the girl talk about stuff (and the way she's talking about it) as a near mirror image to me is so, so great for once. edit: fuck i'm crying
Recently, I was in the exact same spot as this girl. Over the last months, I've finally found a way to tolerate my depression and live a happier life. I'm going to ask her out again, just to see if it's possible to not be reduced to our worst fear, our worst flaw, but to actually be loved for the person underneath this pile of shame that depression puts onto us. No one needs to be rejected, because he/she is depressed, and no one deservers to to live under the reduced life quality depression puts us into.
For everyone who reads this: feel yourself hugged. I like you.
That wasn't the problem. She had depression and her own insecurities made up this reality where this guy doesn't *actually* like her. But that was far from the truth and it was hurting the potential relationship that was blossoming. He cared for her and understood, but her depression made it a lot harder to see that.
Depression isn't something you can just "hide and bottle up UwU" it's a mental disease. And bottling up your emotions and hiding your illness is such a toxic ideology. This kind of thinking will only make the effected spiral further down, making their illness worse.
Don't hide your imperfections, be open so you can get the proper support systems you need; not just from your therapist, but from your loved ones as well. Because hiding these things AREN'T helpful to anyone and it perpetuates a culture that diminishes actual mental health problems.
It is really frustrating hearing people nowadays being like oh I struggle with anxiety and depression. Like there are people that suffer with it. But saying oh I have depression and anxiety because tests make me nervous or life is hard. Like bullshit. I don't think a lot of people had anxiety back when and I'm sure many are like well doctors can diagnose and blah blah blah
well buuuuullshit. If you imply you are sad over a pet everybody is like ooooh you have depression. Remember that work deadline. That made you anxious, boom you have anxiety. Like no that is normal. If you want anxiety to try having it 24/7. Not just about mundane stuff but like random things, things your brain will just nag you about things. Like oh, you didn't say this so now everyone hates you. Or remember that water you spilled 5 years ago what if someone slipped on that. Depression is feeling nothing. You don't want to do anything. Not being lazy, there is a difference. Honestly, I feel people use it as a crutch to lean on for things to go easier and to make up their shit personality. There are people that are like I have depression and don't shut up about it. Like yeah, I'd fake an illness to have a personality to (that was sarcasm). With such a triggered generation I'm surprised no one gets mad over this but whatever
I like this vid makes me grateful that although similar to the girl I’m fortunate to have a philosophy and friends and family that are the opposite to Jeremy a constant reminder of how dope you are is great way to handle depression
I relate to this so much. I haven’t dated in a couple of years because of a combination of bad experiences and just feeling like I can’t connect to people because of low self esteem and anxiety. I feel like I’d be wasting people’s time.
Wow. Holy shit. This spoke to me on such a level I can't even explain. This has been me this past week; talking with people, making plans and dates, and then... thinking that I'd just be wasting their time and that they would hate me because I'm annoying. I ramble, I stumble over my words, and I'm a depressed and anxious mess. My room looks like hers, and I apologize so much, just like she does. I feel like this is exactly what I needed to see. Like I was meant to see it. This is gonna help me get back. Because I'm not the only one. And it's okay.
I have another one for depression guy:
When you find the same episode on TV from a show you don’t watch, it’s because it’s the only thing you recognize from the show. If it wasn’t the same episode, you would dismiss it and keep looking for something else to watch. It’s not because the universe is sending you a message because you’re special. You’re not special. You’re insignificant and worthless. What a juvenile thought.
Depression guy is strong in me 👍
For example, an American fashion company might source fabric in China and have the clothes manufactured in Vietnam, finished in Italy, and shipped to a warehouse in the United States for distribution to retail outlets internationally. The fashion industry has long been one of the largest employers in the United States, and it remains so in the 21st century. However, employment declined considerably as production increasingly moved overseas, especially to China. Because data on the fashion industry typically are reported for national economies and expressed in terms of the industry’s many separate sectors, aggregate figures for world production of textiles and clothing are difficult to obtain . However, by any measure, the industry accounts for a significant share of world economic output.
The fashion industry consists of four levels: the production of raw materials, principally fibres and textiles but also leather and fur; the production of fashion goods by designers, manufacturers, contractors, and others; retail sales; and various forms of advertising and promotion. These levels consist of many separate but interdependent sectors, all of which are devoted to the goal of satisfying consumer demand for apparel under conditions that enable participants in the industry to operate at a profit.
