Give us your best tip for overcoming depression.
To regard it as being like the weather. It's not your responsibility that it's raining, but it is real when it rains, and the fact that it's raining does not mean that the rain is never going to stop. The only thing to do is to believe that, one day, it won't be raining and accept it so you can find a mental umbrella to shield yourself from the worst. The sun will eventually come up.
The problem is that you don’t just choose recovery. You have to keep choosing recovery, over and over and over again. You have to make that choice 5-6 times each day. You have to make that choice even when you really don’t want to. It’s not a single choice, and it’s not easy.

When you’re fighting mental illness like you are, you’re fighting a silent battle. No one sees just how hard you’re constantly having to fight. No one else knows the pain and the inner turmoil like you do. You should be proud of yourself, even when you feel like you’re failing. I think anyone fighting a mental illness deserves a Medal of Honor, because that fight is real and its more difficult than most people realize.

This also applies to those friends who are COMPLETELY undifferentiated from their boyfriends, a.k.a. ‘We’-ers (“WE hate that restaurant”, “WE like that tv show”, “WE don’t get along with that girl”, “WE think you should totally text that guy back”, etc)…WHAT THE FUCK. Biggest pet peeve ever.
Our new edition to the family will have her in a week so excited!! #puppy#dog#bitch#girl#cute#love#awesome#samoyed#
