I want to give up.
I imagine we all feel that way.
Like, living my life,
just isn't enough..
All hard work, with no play.

I feel this way fairly often
and I try to push it away,
but when I get right down to it,
it's just a part of who I am,
and face it, it's there to stay.

And I know there are others like me,
but that doesn't make my problems less real.
No, I'm not going to kill myself,
I'm just trying to share the way I feel.

I don't want sympathy,
or even attention,
I just want to live my life,
and not feel any need for redemption.

I want people to know,
that there are people like them.
And this suffering is something
that will be fixed, hemmed.

All in all,
I guess I want to say,
live your life in the present,
and try and smile every day.
Kind of a little bit of vent.

I sorta "Came out" to my family that I have feelings of depression, you know, seeking help, like people say we should.
I was basically told that I have everything handed to me, that I should be happy, and that there wasn't a reason for me to be sad, so I couldn't possible have depression.
Then I was ridiculed, saying that I'm looking for attention and that I need to grow up.

Trust me. I know these feelings exactly. It's what I'm experiencing as well.

You're not alone, and even though my own issues with this have been turning me into a cynic...

I think it will get better. So just...keep trying. That's what I'm forcing myself to do.

And damn, it's harder than a lot of other things I've ever had to do.

I hope it will work out well for you. Vent like this in whatever way you can imagine; it really does help.

I don't usually read written deviations, because honestly - I'm just too lazy to spend more than a few seconds on most submissions, but just the preview drew me in. When I read the whole piece, I felt like it really spoke to me, and touched me deeply, as someone who also suffers depression.

Thank you for sharing this and for reaching out to let others know they are not alone. I'm sorry to hear that your family has been less than supportive. *hugs* I hope things pick up for you and that you find a supporting pillar to help see you through this.
