Depression is very difficult to deal with because it can be due to any number of reasons. These reasons aren't always clear to us when we first experience them, but over time they can be made clearer. When I feel like that, usually I try to keep my mind active with something. I know it doesn't make you feel any better and sometimes it can be a chore, but if you have the energy to do something then it's really better than just doing nothing. This is only if you have the energy to do that though, in some cases even getting up can be completely draining. Sometimes you might want to be alone, but it's always good to know that you have friends who will be there for you. You'll definitely find that here on blah, there are a lot of people here that'll always love to hear you out! And the last thing I have to tell you is that changing something can help. Sometimes when we get stuck in a routine, it can feel like a rut. It may bring the same feelings again and make you more depressed. If you engage in new activities and learn new things, it will help you greatly. However, again, this is only if you're able to do this because those with terrible depression cannot get to this stage. Depression and sadness takes time to deal with, but it's a battle that is definitely worth fighting. It's a good thing that you're looking to make yourself happy rather than sink into depression. Sometimes it may be better to face sadness rather than avoid it, this greatly varies on the situation. But I'm sure if you contacted one of us here at blah, we'll be happy to hear you out and help you figure out what's going on. It's hard to advise you because of the little information you've provided regarding the situation, but I don't blame you because you must feel like you don't really know yourself. Speaking to someone else can help you piece your problems together and provides a fresh perspective on the issue. If this is a recurring issue, I do think that seeking a therapist is your best bet. They will provide you with the proper resources required in order to deal with your depression. Do not ignore this, don't feel like you're not worth seeking a therapist out for. It's always worth a check because what you're feeling is definitely of upmost importance.
