    So I am wondering something, do you ever think that you force yourself to feel depressed? Just a random question that popped into my head for some reason.

    I think for some that being depressed is comfortable for them it is all that they know and when they feel happiness they don't trust what they are feeling they get scared and yes they do something to sabotage that happiness

    sometimes i wonder the same thing,

    if I dont want to get the hell back up on my feet, i'm all content laying down and let world pass by with no care in the world.

    I wish I knew.

    If I made myself depress, that will make things so much more easier. Because all I need to know then is how to make myself happy.

    I guess that I wonder because if I can unconsciously make myself depressed. Then I should unconsciously make myself happy right?

    Think I do make myself get into that depressed state, not the one I'm most comfortable in but it's the one I know the best. Have actually been in situations where I should have been quite happy with my life, there was really no reason I shouldn't have but being happy is just so foreign to me. Threw everything away as far as employment and the other things that were supposed to make me happy and now I'm back in that state of depression by all my actions, though I know this state so well can't say I enjoy it in the least.

    I've never really thought about it Forgotten_Man but now you mention it I think I do; well not exactly 'force', but I fall into depression & it is a sort of comfort zone, however contradictory that sounds

    Sometimes, which is rare when I am not feeling depressed I do think of things to put me back in that depressed mood. With me I think I do it because without it I feel lonely and have nothing. Now I know that sounds crazy, but I guess it just shows how messed up my mind is.

    I make myself depressed all the time. It's not something new to me. I make myself depressed
    Day of my life.

    I just love to pick at myself and eat myself from the inside up. It's something that I think about alot, and that alot of people actually theorize and talk about alot in self help articles. There's something inside use, all of us, that likes to see us fail. It's either some voice, some entity, a chemical imbalance or whatever that kind of drives people to be harshly critical about ourselves. Now, that is not to say that is the root of all depression, but there is something to be said about how people or individuals just LOVE to self deprecate one's own flaws and faults.

    Maybe we romanticize it to a degree. Or maybe we just can't unlearn how to stop hating ourselves.

    I know I've sabotaged myself a lot due to feeling inept, feeling insecure.

    Overthinking and upsetting others makes me sad and lonely. I think over caring can be its own worst enemy.

    Yeah probably... I can't stop to hating myself so.
    I wish I could be happy though. Why being happy is so damn hard?
