Hi. This is completely new and weird to me since I am an introvert. I am also depressed. I do what other people say “self harm” but I call it healing because that’s the only way I feel a little bit better. But I hate being depressed. It makes me feel weak… I try everything… Talked to my friends but nothing helps and I hate it and I want to end it but I cannot. I cannot control the depressing thoughts which enter in my mind.
Depression has also made me a pessimist. I feel like no one is going to read this. Or reply back.

hey, idk what to say or not!! but i’ll just say one thing that please believe in yourself and tell this to parents. this is not good and not even safe. mental health is as much important as physical health. so please talk about it to your parents they will help you. and also try to take some professional help please.

Speaking of depression I have overcome my own depression a few years back when one day I said to myself that I will do better and I will love myself more. one thing to avoid depression is do things that makes you happy. If the pandemic limits you to do other stuff that you used to do before then find something that can be your outlet of those energy that you keep inside. Also please seek professional help you sound like you are so young.

Don’t watch depressing videos or listen to depressing music. Allow yourself to embrace some peace and quiet time. If you like reading or watching manga or anime like me I suggest you do that you know those rom-com stories will help you revive some energy you maybe missing. what maybe effective to me might not be effective to you so do things that makes you happy and less stress :)

Goodluck!

Hey buddy! Believe me thing may not seem right at the moment but thing take some time to change. I am an ambivert myself n i went through depression last year. I kn how bad it feels… Unintentionally feeling that everything thats going wrong is your fault in some way or the other. At times situations might be bad n u might feel that no even cares if you exist or no one has any emotions left for u of any sort. I personally went through the same feeling, but remember there are always people who are gaurding your back. They might not show it openly or tell it to u ever but there are always people who care. Of the self harm process which u describe as healing, its not ok. I dont wanna sound Pushy or bossy in any manner possible but try to stop it. Just try to push away such thoughts whenever they cross your mind. Focus on brighter things like good music or try picking up a hobby which u had earlier or even a new one would help. Give time to yourself, just caring for you . All these might feel unintresting boring and a complete waste of time but give a certain fixed amount of time to that hobby everyday n i guarantee that everything will be soon fine. Though u are an introvert, try meeting people who have gone through similar circumstances. N also a lot of ppl are here to talk help n solve your issues.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN THIS!😉🖤🖤

I don’t know exactly how to frame my question…
I have seen so many people who say that they were depressed. Like, they use past tense. You also said that u went through depression. How did you overcame it?

Its not as easy as it sounds but it aint that difficult too. You’ve gotta slowly remove yourself from that place. Just try to look at the brighter side of anything that happens n take intrest in things.Just like I said earlier, You can take up older hobbies or you can take up some other hobby which is outside ur area of intrest like I did. I’m a boy n i started cooking stuff. As made new things n my family members started liking it, it made me happy. Just put your intrest in something, it might be boring in the starting but invest some amount of your time to it n things will get better. when people see and appritiate your work that will slowly help you and your mind will do that thing more and more so as to get the regular appreciation which it was’nt getting earlier. Also depression might have disturbed your sleep cycle so try to get adequet amount of sleep. Eating things like milk and nuts will help you restore your sleep cycle as the help release seratonin n melatonin in your brain which are responsible for your sleep. Dont worry everything will be ok in some time, We’re in this together😉🖤

Thank you. That’s definitely a lot to think about. And congratulations also
