Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. But while overcoming depression isn’t quick or easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t just will yourself to “snap out of it,” but you do have some control—even if your depression is severe and stubbornly persistent. The key is to start small and build from there. Feeling better takes time, but you can get there if you make positive choices for yourself each day.
The problem with depression is You know you'll be ok, but you still feel awful. You know people love you, but it doesn't feel like they do. You know doing something will make you feel better, but you just don't know how to. You wanna feel better, but you just can't seem to get there.
