Reason For Feeling So Lonely When You Are Depressed


Sounds pathetic, but it’s true.

What you tend to do:

  • Stay at home – you don’t want to bother anyone
  • If you are lucky to find a friend who’s been through the same shit, or someone who is willing to listen no matter what and no matter when – dude, you are a lucky bastard!

 








Then again, if your friend is also depressed then you are in for an addiction.

It’s like you feed off each other’s bad vibes.

When you are down it seems like every sad song speaks to you, right? That song is your drug. And then you play it on loop so many times it makes you feel nothing. That’s exactly the effect your depressed friend has on you.

Either way chances are you’ll be alone because no friend is your real friend in those days/months. Your only true friend is the internet.

10 Typical Responses When You Admit You are Depressed (DEBUNKED!)


  1. Spend some time in the nature

    • Pfft, if I ever get myself over the edge of this bed …maybe I’ll go to the bathroom.
  2. List what you like about yourself

    • Here is my list during my depressive cycle:
      • I am useless
      • I am hopeless
      • I don’t deserve to exist
      • Why am I still alive?
      • Nobody cares about me.
      • …sounds familiar?
  3. Read a good book

    • Best thing a depressed person can do with a book is stare at it. For hours. That’s it.
  4. Watch a funny movie or TV show

    • Been there done that. You know what I watched? Reruns of “Two and a half men”. You know why? – Because I’d seen it like 20 times and was the only thing my brain was able to consume.
  5. Take a long, hot bath

    • Yup, done. Now what?
  6. Take care of a few small tasks

    • See answer to question 1.
  7. Play with a pet

    • I don’t have a pet. Everything dies here. 
  8. Talk to friends or family face-to-face

    • This tip is the ultimate bullshit! You really think someone would listen what I have to say now that I am at my lowest? Ok, so let’s say they do listen you know what their advice would be? They would say “You have to go out more” or some bullshit like that. If they don’t want to listen – then how would you even be able to put on a happy face mask and pretend you are such a fun and upbeat person! Nobody wants to hang out with a downer! That’s why most of us just sit at home alone and pray nobody calls us on the phone so we don’t have to explain why we sound like shit. 


  9. Listen to music

    • Yup, especially when sad music speaks to me. I cried my eyes out listening to Moby.
  10. Do something spontaneous

    • Pfffft …. Seriously, who wrote this list? Have they ever met a depressed person? Or they think depression is a made up disease?




When they say "Go travel, it will do you good"
