This boy I like pushed himself away for two days we were at the talking stage and around 1 in the morning on a Monday he explained to me he was going through some stuff & wouldn’t be able to be in a relationship I woke up 15min after he sent it and I wasn’t able to click on it until 4 am . I explained to him it was okay and hope he got through it, later that day around 2 I talked to my mom about it I had thought about what he could be going through and looked up videos as to how a person could be when they are depressed, everything was coming together . But he then blocks me on Instagram and I felt so confused. I looked for many answers online as to why this could happen & looking through some of these comments makes me believe that it wasn’t me and he’s just trying to have some space from me .
Depression is just a lack of feeling gods grace. If you try praying no matter how stupid it sounds, treat it like a silly experiment just ask for help, I get it god doesn’t exist, it doesn’t need to, we’ve evolved to need two things redemption which requires benevolence and trust which requires believing things are being taken care of. Belief in god solves both issues. Notice how didn’t say god solves those problems. I said belief in god. Atheists see believers as being stupid and delusional because they believe in something which is ephemeral and unprovable but the unspoken truth is that believers see atheists as stupid and delusional. Because they deny theirs any utility in faith or that believing someone loves you can make you feel more grateful and at peace. Atheists routinely choose to make fun of fighters thanking god. They thank god because in order to step into that cage you have to believe something greater than you is protecting you is keeping you from being mamed or killed. Praying can give you that small milligram of courage you need to jump out of a burning building or fight someone who’s wielding a weapon. Believing you might be protected allows you to focus on what the moment needs, like: throw this punch or dodge this kick without becoming paralyzed by all the what if’s. Your brain can’t tell you how to fight if it’s busy worrying about you getting hurt but if you believe god will protect you then you can give those worries to god, you can put them on the shelf.
Redemption= God loves you because he made you to be as you are. He can’t love you less and importantly he can’t love you more there’s nothing you need to do to prove your lovesble, that you are ok. You are ok so you are completely empowered in this moment to forgive yourself with all the might you have to muster. Because god didn’t make a mistake when you were made he made you so you could learn from your story. If you have grief and regrets it means you learned you got what you needed to get and even though it was real bad god built you with weakness so they would become strength and the only way they become strength is if you accept gods love and his help in forgiving yourself. Again God doesn’t need to exist for this to function this is all just the power of belief doing it’s job. But if you get enough out of your prayers and supplication/devotions you will begin to know he does exist. Which might mean your delusional but your delusional that a perfectly benevolent force of unconditional love is embracing you and healing you and wants the best for you. If that’s a reason for people to look down on you it’s laugh out loud silly because that type of crazy will make you one of the happiest people in the world. So what if I have an imaginary friend he’s a very amazing Imaginary friend who makes me feel love unconditionally and empowers me to forgive myself to stop hating myself and honestly love myself and be grateful for every breath. Make fun of me all you want for not being scientific in my heart I feel good I feel loved unconditionally.
Trust: our brains are really bad at thinking about multiple things and most of what we imagine is true ends up being wrong. Atheists spend time thinking about billions of things that they have no control over. As a result they are depressed because the weight of the world is on their shoulders. They honestly believe that if they don’t figure out how to make it work it won’t work. It doesn’t matter if they can’t control it, they just feel they need to figure out how to control it. They are always planning and analyzing and strategizing about every little thing all this intense thinking is called stress and neuroticism. Believers TRUST that God is taking care of all the stuff they don’t have control over so they only focus on what they can change in any given moment. This gives the, the ability to relax and trust that as long as they work hard at the things they can change god will take care of the rest. They don’t have a billion thoughts moving through their head they probably have two. They don’t worry about nuclear war, or epidemics or planes going down because they trust something is watching over them. Just imagine how wonderful it must be to believe that the thing that created the universe is totally benevolent and is always looking out for you, totally unscientific, almost certainly delusional but to them they know they are being taken care of, looked out for, that they are on a well laid path, they are where they are supposed to be and they are totally protected. No matter how delusional or stupid you think it is. They sleep perfectly, they don’t worry when they don’t have the money because they trust god will show them the way no matter how idiotic and stupidly delusional. They don’t worry about anything but doing a good job. In other words all the stress of your atheist life to,them that’s delusional, that’s stupid, that’s idiotic. Because good is taking care of it weather you believe in him or not. The only difference is you have panic attacks and they have moments akin to being a baby in a loving mothers embrace. They Trust everything they can’t control god is taken care of and every time they get hurt or wronged they can pray to god and feel his love. And they do feel his love because that’s how imagination works; if you imagine biting into a lemon your mouth will water.
Every single group,of people on earth before the “enlightenment” (tragic choice of words) believed in god, not because they are stupid but because it’s an evolutionary necessity. The Japanese didn’t invent the wheel but they invented Shintoism and when Buddhism came along it unified the country in a peace The lasted a century. A religion caused them to move from jutsu functionality to Do,a path or way. They rewrote their greatest technical achievements which had all been in warfare to reflect belief in god. A sword wasn’t a weapon it was an instrument of the spirit.
Believing in god can revolutionize your life and most of the time it’s something you have to wrestle with, you have to pray and read and meditate in little skeptical bits and littlest by little you may begin to feel as if something is changing for the better. You may one day sit down to pray and notice you feel better then you did before you started and one day you might feel this strange feeling like something really big loves you intensely. The biggest lie of atheists is blind faith no legitimate believer has blind faith, they have a long history of skepticism and experience and at some point there was just too much experience to deny it. Too much evidence for it to matter if science could prove it or not. There was just so much good in there lives they stopped fighting with doubt.
I know Christians especially but all religious people can be despicable, hateful, intolerant, bigoted, that’s because people are generally pretty terrible lost and messed up. But if you take chance if you run the stupid dumb silly experiment of praying to a god you don’t believe in, you might discover god is full of love and goodness. In which case who cares if someone said whatever to you, you pray and feel grace and know that person didn’t know the first thing about god because all they did was judge and when you feel god touch your heart the one thing your damned sure of is God doesn’t judge anyone.
Idk how i clicked on but am glad I did bc I can't relate however reading the comments helps me to understand this mental disorder in short. I pray that God finds his way into your mental thoughts .Dont be sad guys he loves you and I pray you find mental peace. ❤❤✌🙏
One night I started watching videos about what depression was. I literally thought I had depression. I saw all the signs of having depression and applied them to myself. I actually started acting like I was depressed... I tricked myself into being depressed for some reason. But it was like a fake version of depression. But I was just sad and hadn’t cried in a while. That was like... three years ago. I don’t know why but this reminds me of that.
Damn, this felt good to have something to relate to and seeing so many people in the comments relating to this too. I literally overthink and realize I overshare like this all of the time because I isolate myself and when I finally let someone get to know me, I open up and let it all out. I guess none of us is as alone as we think we are.
U personalize the voice and outsmart it. Its created in the moment you feel self cynical.
If u start feeling depressed at 8am it was born at 7:59.
You win because its trapped in the past.
Mine told me I was the worst person in the world. When that failed it said the world was better off without me.
But I care for many. That I protect and serve. So it was wrong
Now whenever I'm depressed I just have to endure the self isolation and feelings of sadness.
And by surrounding myself with people I can rely on....
Combating sadness with laughter and bittersweet anime. Boom
Fuck you Liam
Have fun you dumb self crippling bastards.
Listen to the pitiful lies they're^
Or be your own placibo vaccine
I recomend the second
I really don't know how to feel about this video... I could relate to every single thing she said, but I was never diagnosed with depression and I can't say for sure if that's what it is... Because sometimes I can be fine. But then I'm in this state of my mind for different periods of time... sometimes days, weeks, months if something that really hit me hard happens and triggers this... But I deep down know what the reality is, and that it's all in my head, and that I was able to be ok before so I kinda just find a way to snap out of it, convince myself to be motivated. but even that takes a lot of time normally, I have a whole period of just thinking about doing stuff before I actually do them, all of it, even just washing my teeth... But like I said... I sometimes wonder if it is just me dramatizing... Because, for example, right now I've been in a period where I'm really motivated, trying to do even the smallest things... but last night I slipped and I couldn't sleep because my brain wouldn't shut up and now I just feel shitty because of putting all my thoughts and fears weight into my boyfriend... I don't know... I'm ok, I never had anything really really bad happen to me like a lot of people had... sure I've had little bad experiences but everyone has... And I know I can be fine, but it feels so momentaneous and it's exhausting knowing that it won't last and this cicle will always be repeating
And the sentence he said "there's a certain level you have to get to before you're entitled to love and mutual support" is one of the main thoughts I have, I'm lucky to be in a relationship but I feel like I'm not worthy of it, and that I should work on myself before being in a relationship, I should be able to be happy with myself before being in a relationship, because that's what I hear everywhere, you can't be in a relationship with someone if you can't be at peace with yourself, and this really eats me up inside and I know it exhaustes him too that I feel this way... He is really motivated and self driven and actually has been a really great help for me to find motivation, I've been a happier version of myself lately because of him... and that also scares me too, because I don't wanna depend on him, I don't wanna be a burdden... And although I'm better with his help I sometimes get bad again and he doesn't really understand it because he had no idea I was this way. I'm a really happy and chill person if you ask any of my friends, and that's also the idea he had of me... and I know I can be happy and chill too, but I'm not just that and think he is having a hard time learning that and being able to deal with that...
Hi, today has been the day that finally triggered that impulse to end my suffering, that one woman I really really love, that one person that makes talking to someone interesting, and not some bs answer like "wow, thast nice" or some vague shit like that.
Today, I make this decision
some people say it cowardly to take ones life, but I think now that im standing right in the edge of this depression cliff, it takes a shit ton of courage to take ones life. I´ve endured twice now, twice the woman that I´m now married to, to cheat in a way that at least from my point of view, isn´t quite a cheat, but it feels like one too, she sending nude pictures to some random guy and the first time she actually cheated was sleeping with another random guy.
I have 2 little girls I really dont want to lose, can´t bear to not see them anymore, so divorce is not my first choice, and well, why am I writting this tonight?, well because that one person I love so much, that one person that makes my entire life shine like it has a purpose, just now, wanted me to somehow forget all my love towards her and go back to been "friends" because she really enjoys my company and the way we talk to each other and shit.
yeah, trying to friendzone me after you´ve shown me true love, yeah ain´t happening baby.
plus add the cheat after I´ve literally done everything I can to make her (my wife´s) life much much better than her bachelor life ever was.
I didn´t get the job that I was hoping for because "I wasn´t called earlier" and now I got job at the place I wanted, but 3 levels down.
anyhow, my life is just garbage overall, if It weren´t for my two girls, I woul´ve killed myself a lot earlier, but now, this pain, the pain of failure, the pain of having your soulmate wanting you to become her friend so that she can fucking ask you fucking questions of why her fucking love life sucks ass, even though I literally just told her I would fucking die for her isnt enough.
neither my family nor friends take enough effort to notice if my miserable life has a purpose, If Im ok or not, nobody does and come to think of it, why should I?
I love this series, I always come here to grief out and cry a little in secret, alone and well, wish I had take other choices in the past.
At least my babies wont remember me in sadness and I can go in peace knowing my death wont really matter to them as much as It would have if they were a little older.
thanks for taking this long in reading my pathetic life.
unfortunately I dont have a gun, and I wanna go in peace, sleep my self to death I guess.
take care and remember, dont ignore the ones that smile the most, they´re the ones that have the biggest emotional wounds of us all.
see you guys in the next life, if there is one.
Dear people in the comments : please don’t self diagnose with depression. Yes, you may have hard days. As we all do, yes you may feel your pain is greater than others, as most of us think. And yes ; talk to a doctor or a pyschologist before self diagnosing.
I think a lot of my depression stems from the girls I date (I’m gay). I’m a senior in highschool and I’ve only had two (maybe 1 1/2) real and super short relationships and both were pretty toxic and left me feeling really shitty about myself. Not to count the numerous times girls have left me for other people or left me period during a date. I’ve given up on dating because I honestly feel like there are no people out there who actually like me for me! Or not want to hurt me. Anyways sorry, this video kind of hits hard with my depression constantly weighing me down telling me I’ll never be good enough and I’ll never find love
She's having both visual and auditory hallucinations as well as a disconnect from the passage of time. This seems like more then depression. Also [email protected]#_ mustache guy he used to tell me I wasn't good enough to jump out of helicopters and now I have a pair of wings on my chest.
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 .
Did you ever get those voices in your head (the depression guy)? Telling that things will go wrong, you aren't worth it? If not, then your lucky you didn't get those voices. That's what's hard about it, you wanna be happy in the relationship but that damn voice likes to put you down.
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
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.
