Alright so my depression was getting better, and I started to smile again. But summer came, and… I’m so annoyed with life, because… it’s SO boring. I try to fill my days with activities. I exercise for two hours in the morning, I go to drum lessons and art classes, I go to the pool, take bike rides, spend time with my brother, watch television, play videogames… but life still bores me to DEATH. And it’s hard to be happy when you don’t see the point of living every day. Do you guys have any tips on how to be positive, ideas for fun things to occupy my time, etc? Life is just so dull and pointless right now.. help!
I've been there before; I know exactly how you feel. The best advice I can give you is to find something you are really passionate about. You have been trying to focus your attention on quite a lot of activities but you need to find "the one".What excites you? What are you pasionate about? What is that activity you cannot go through a day without doing? As soon as you find it, life won't be pointless anymore.Another good tip I can give you out of personal experience is, avoid being alone; spend time with people you care about and that care about you as well; maybe someone you haven't hang out with in a while; also, find a way to relieve tension, like dancing, writing, or playing an instrument.You say that you have already started to smile again; there it is right there, the living proof you are strong enough to overcome this.Good luck; it will get better, even if right now, it doesn't seem like it. :D
Try hanging out with friends, volunteer somewhere, take up a new hobby, go to an amusement park or a museum. Find an online friend you can Skype with, there's a lot of things you can do you just have to find them.
I know EXACTLY how you feel. I kind of love and hate summer. I've been super depressed lately and I feel like the best way to cure it is to get out of the house. I mean, I've been spending way too much time on the computer lately. And sometimes things on the computer can be really good and or helpful, like this! But, when you're depressed it doesn't really seem to help. So, I've found the best way to get over depression is just to keep busy. Get out there! If you really don't want to, or it doesn't seem to be helping, try being productive. Like doing the dishes, or laundry. Whatever works! Also, one more thing.. I know I've been going on for a while, but, anyways. I think it helps to find someone to talk to. It doesn't have to be a therapist or anything. Just someone. Maybe family, a good friend, or this website, I guess. But it feels amazing to open up to someone. Especially face to face.
I'm in the same boat as you. Summer is boring and my depression is creeping up on me.
I've tried picking up new hobbies here and there. I'm started to draw, and I'm not very good at it so far but I'm trying to do a little every day. I've also been writing and browsing online for things I would like to buy but will never be able to afford. Going shoe browsing on Ebay is actually pretty fun!
