You do know that if you weren't so afraid of what other people thought of you and just acted like yourself, then you wouldn't be so depressed right?
When I act like myself and become a little bit more confident and less depressed and hopeful, literally almost instantly it is snatched away and I am proven wrong. Why bother being let down over and over again? :-)
>you are not going to win everyday
I'm on a 6940 day losing streak.
itt: people that don't understand depression
people that think it's possible to "just get over it" without behavioral therapy or medications
people that have never actually experienced depression or anxiety and think it just means sadness or shyness
I have two possible options, OP.
>lie to impress people
>they see through my lies
>people are repulsed by my fake shitty persona
>I'm left alone
>act like myself
>people are repulsed by my bland, uninteresting, and annoying personality
>I'm left alone, but at least I was true to myself!!!!!!!!!
When people say "be yourself", they don't actually mean it. They mean "be Chad" or "be Stacy".
