Hey… I’ve been very depressed lately, to the point where something so small can make me burst out into tears… How can I stop that? Ideas? the people who make me feel a little happier are only available for short period of time. I need someone to talk to, someone who I van actually trust. Not being lied to saying I can trust them. I’ve been wondering if there are any good people on this site left? If someone can just be a true friend, someone who doesn’t mind listening, that’d mean a lot. Please and thank you…

I would love to help you in any way I could. I know what it feels like to need a friend, and what it's like to be depressed. If you ever want to talk or anything, let me know. I would be more than glad to help you or just talk. I've been depressed lately myself, so maybe we can help each other. As far as things you can do to help yourself, I know what's helped me. Try getting out of the house, even when you don't feel like it. Even if you just take a walk or drive in town and back, it helps a lot. Try doing something you enjoy, or even try to learn something new. Surround yourself with positive things, like books, movies, and TV shows. I know when I'm depressed, I'll usually go watch something that's sad and make myself feel even worse. Don't be like me. Lol. Watch something funny or happy. And like I said, I would be more than happy to talk to you, and I don't judge. Just message me, and I'll do my best to be a friend. :)
There are always good people on this site with good intentions. I just want to say to you that things will improve. Since you are in the beginning of adolescence, the feelings you feel suddenly become more intense. I'm sure you have realized this by now. I totally can relate on your sensitivity, as right now when I go to high school I get so wrapped up of what others think of me it drives me up the wall sometimes. The best thing I did to counter this is to first realize that you're a human being and you shouldn't feel ashamed or guilty to have these feelings. You're not dumb, too different, or insane, you're human. Just holding on to that thought helps me cope because there are people like you going through similar situations. At 13, I also had depressive thoughts, and plus my parents divorced so that factor amplified by negative thoughts. From that experience I realized to just let time flow, to take deep breathes and think about a happy memory. A memory/moment so joyful, so beautiful it moves you to tears. Many say that they never had a moment like that before. To that I say you're wrong, just watch the sad scene of almost any Pixar movie, those count as memories. Things will get better, I promise you, the thoughts you have now are just a temporary emotional blockade. I believe in you!
