I was wondering if- when you are in the deepest depths of depression- do you have someone you can talk to? Like a trusted friend or family member who doesn't judge yet stays there patiently to help you through it? And for those friends that you can't go to, how do you handle them when you are utterly depressed. Do you fake happiness around them? Or shut them out? --- For me I have an amazing friend. She should be a therapist just because she is so wonderful. :biggrin: She never judges me, or tells me to smile and be happy. Instead she listens to me until I stop blabbering about my problems. And then she explains why I'm important in this world. She reminds me of all of the good I've done and tells me how life isn't over yet, and that I can keep getting what I want. I have kept all of the texts that she has sent me during these times, to keep helping me! We both have helped each other out of the worst times of our lives! On the complete oposite I have a friend that will just talk about her. When I try to reach out she will turn it around until it's all about her. So I've given up trying to get help from her. I found that when I'm depressed as hell I will just barely answer her texts and refuse to be around her. Anyways I was just wondering if you all had someone that you can trust to just cry to and hear the beautiful words that we all just need to hear sometimes.
