Jasmine Warga, My Heart and Other Black Holes
🔅Having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. It’s the fear of failure, but no urge to be productive. It’s wanting friends, but hate socializing. It’s wanting to be alone, but not wanting to be lonely. It’s feeling everything at once then feeling paralyzingly numb.

🔅I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy. Because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anybody else to feel like that.
🔅I withdraw from people and places from time to time, a world that is filled with millions of mouths that talks too much but never have anything to say.
🔅There is no point treating a depressed person as though she were just feeling sad, saying, ‘There now, hang on, you’ll get over it.’ Sadness is more or less like a head cold – with patience, it passes. Depression is like cancer.
Barbara Kingsolver, The Bean Trees

🔅Depression is feeling like you’ve lost something but having no clue when or where you last had it. Then one day you realize what you lost is yourself.

🔅I’ll never forget how the depression and loneliness felt good and bad at the same time. Still does.
Henry Rollins, The Portable Henry Rollins
🔅She has love in her words, pain in her silence.
🔅People cry, not because they’re weak. It’s because they’ve been strong too long.
🔅Everyday is a second chance.
🔅When you’re surrounded by all these people, it can be lonelier than when you’re by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don’t feel like you can trust anyone or talk to anybody, you feel like you’re really alone.
🔅I don’t hate people. I just feel better when they aren’t around.
🔅I am bent, but not broken. I am scarred, but not disfigured. I am sad, but not hopeless. I am tired, but not powerless. I am angry, but not bitter. I am depressed, but not giving up.
🔅It’s such a fine line between feeling everything and nothing at all.
🔅Depression is being colorblind and constantly told how colorful the world is.
Atticus, Love Her Wild
🔅No matter how tall the mountain is, it cannot block the sun.
🔅Sometimes, all you can do is lie in bed, and hope to fall asleep before you fall apart.

🔻You begin to forget what it means to live. You forget things, you forget that you used to feel all right, you forget what it means to feel alright. Because you feel like shit all the time, and you can’t remember what it was like before. People take the feeling of ‘full’ for granted.

🔻If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.
🔻Talk to me about sadness. I talk about it too much in my own head but I never mind others talking about it either; I occasionally feel like I tremendously need others to talk about it as well.
🔻Moving on isn’t about not loving someone anymore and forgetting them. It’s about having the strength to say I still love you, but you’re not worth this pain.
🔻The hardest thing about depression is that it is addictive. It begins to feel uncomfortable not to be depressed. You feel guilty for feeling happy.

Mary Anne Radmacher
🔻If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.
🔻I am not a broken heart. I am not collarbones. Or drunken letters never sent. I am not the way I leave or left or didn’t know how to handle anything, at any time. And I am not your fault.
🔻Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect.
🔻I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless, and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.
🔻If you don’t think your anxiety, depression, sadness and stress impact your physical health, think again. All of these emotions trigger chemical reactions in your body, which can lead to inflammation and a weakened immune system. Learn how to cope, sweet friend. There will always be dark days.
🔻The best way out is always through.
🔻That’s the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it’s impossible to ever see the end.
🔻I don’t want to see anyone. I lie in the bedroom with the curtains drawn. And nothingness washing over me like a sluggish wave. Whatever is happening to me is my own fault. I have done something wrong. Something so huge I can’t even see it. Something that’s drowning me. I am inadequate and stupid. Without worth. I might as well be dead.
🔻Sometimes, all you can do is lie in bed and hope to fall asleep before you fall apart.
William C. Hannan
🔻I am in that temper that if I were under water I would scarcely kick to come to the top.
🔻The sadness of the world has different ways of getting to people, but it seems to succeed almost every time.
🔻Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
🔻One swallow does not make a summer, neither does one fine day; similarly one day or brief time of happiness does not make a person entirely happy.
🔻No matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger– something better, pushing right back.
🔻The five stages– denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance– are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with the one we lost. They are tools to help us frame and identify what we may be feeling. But they are not stops on some linear timeline in grief.
🔻I’ll never forget how the depression and loneliness felt good and bad at the same time. Still does.
🔻Even if happiness forgets you a little bit, never completely forget about it.
🔻When people don’t know exactly what depression is, they can be judgmental.
🔻I felt exhausted, and worried, and friendless and hopeless and everything-else-less.
🔻Depression presents itself as a realism regarding the rottenness of the world in general. And the rottenness of your life in particular. But the realism is merely a mask for depression’s actual essence. Which is an overwhelming estrangement for humanity.
🔻The thing about depression is that, if you’re not the one who’s actually suffering from it, there’s very little you can do to be proactive. If someone in your family is depressed, all you can really do is send them to a shrink, get them their meds, be gentle, and wait.
🔻Don’t be afraid if things seem difficult in the beginning. That’s only the initial impression. The important thing is not to retreat; you have to master yourself.
🔻Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.
🔻Anxiety’s like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you very far.
🔻Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
