It is challenging to wake up and struggle to get out of bed and do the simplest of tasks. You may feel hopeless and struggle to take care of yourself when you are in a depressive episode. You also might feel hopeless, like you might not ever be happy or have fun again. This can affect your relationships with loved ones or your performance at work. You want to do well, but it feels impossible when you’re struggling under the weight of your emotions.
You know you have to take care of yourself, but you just don’t know how to do so. You feel ashamed and guilty because you don’t feel like a productive member of society–and quite frankly, you don’t really want to be–not while you feel this way, at least. You don’t want to live this way anymore. You want to break through the heavy, dark clouds and find joy, purpose, and authenticity.
Symptoms of depression:
- Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and hopelessness
- Overeating or loss of appetite
- Persistent sad, anxious, or empty feelings
- Loss of interest in what used to give you pleasure
- Difficulty concentrating
