21 things I wish I could have told myself when I first got depression.

1 – It’s going to hurt… a lot.

2 – But you’re going to be thankful for that pain one day. Simply because its all that’s left to remind you you’re alive.

5 – Don’t feel guilty. Just because you don’t have the worst life that was ever lived, doesn’t invalidate how you feel now. Pain is relative. Say it everyday. Pain is relative.

8 – And you’ve got to let them go. You can’t fight to keep who you were and battle depression at the same time. Depression is too strong. You have to let go or you could end up with nothing.

9 – The people that notice something’s wrong and stick by you are the only people you need in your life. They can’t take the pain away – but they wish they could.

10 – And the people that don’t? You’re going to have let them go too. And that means saying goodbye to another life a happier you could have had.

11 – You can’t fight everyday. If you do it’ll turn you into something you don’t want to be. Find a day, every once in a while, and just let it wash over you. Let depression through your defences and swamp your entire being. Face that fear.

15 – You might never win this war. You might always have depression, but don’t you think for one mother-fucking minute that you’ll always be depressed.
