depression talk
« on: January 23, 2018, 06:51:49 pm »
use this thread to talk about depression or any other mental issues. don't shitpost in this thread, please.

basically my mind is going too fast for itself and i say s**t without thinking, and f**k up badly really often. i'm starting to lose friends because of it and i don't really have any outlets for my frustration.
i also am overshadowed by my friends, they are better than me at literally everything and i feel so inadequate because of it.
i ain't happy, i'm feeling glad
i got N E B B Y in a bag

I go through the same sort of things. I always worry about stuff I say being destructive. Um, I've realized that I'm very poor at recognizing humor and that I take things literally.

I also often hear sounds speaking to me. Like there was a dog squeak toy I would frequently hear and it would repeat the same words in the same pattern.

I relate with you, I often have a very overactive mind as well, and in the past my head would always be saying things I don't mean or would hurt me. Don't worry, things will get better and even if some things don't change that does mean the only way is up.

I feel a good approach although different strategies work for different people is when you find a quiet (otherwise as stress free as you can) place like your room is to let all your thoughts pass through without analyzing them and focus on your breathing or an object/sense of your choice. This is a technique called mindfulness which has worked for me. At that point it doesn't matter what enters your head or what you say, and you can assert you and your thoughts are separate; a reaction to an event and not fact. Mindfulness can take a little practise, but it does get a lot easier in time and becomes a natural skill. While doing this, you may even remember the feelings attached to past memories once forgotten.

Sometimes however like at stressful situations at school you can't do that, and you can say things you don't mean (which is not a bad thing; emotions are the driving force for action but sometimes others don't understand that we're not saying mean things out of malicious intent, but rather due to our low mood, stress and anxiety).

At those points a good strategy may be to imagine you're 'pulling on the brakes' in relation to your feelings. A strategy that helps me with this is physically I raise my eyebrows and forehead (like the feelings are being captured) and imagine each emotion is lasting longer than it is, so I can both observe it but escape my non-passive mind (in other words automatic/impulse, default mode?).

While you're doing it, it can be good to try a little CBT as well. Ask yourself (but take as much time as you need) to ask critical questions like 'is there another perspective', 'what may be the source of this feeling?' or you could try an affirmation, such as 'don't worry, it will pass' (as all feelings transition from one to another even though they may return), but also remember don't feed into them. If a thought surfaces like 'I feel inadequate', don't consciously answer with a response like no/yes (but if it's an automatic thought don't suppress the thought either), but try to imagine it silently as somebody else you love suffering. From that perspective we can say, 'I relate', respect the thought and give it room to breath.

I think too depression often correlates with pressure, stress, expectation. When I had severe low mood at least one of these factors were high; so when you experience stress there is nothing wrong with taking time off and removing any responsibilities.

Don't worry about what other people think. I feel there is a lot of emphasis in society on what makes us different because it's helpful for the work place, when I feel often we should remember to focus on what makes us the same (and also what empowers us) as well. Remember to find strength in the positives, like having a supportive circle, or the fact other people experience depression too, so when we talk with them while feeling low they understand us a lot more than people who aren't experiencing it. You also aren't inadequate at all (and I feel at the end of the day it doesn't matter how we compare or fit in with an ideal), you're intelligent, open, friendly.

Remember to stay strong and be kind to yourself, and things will work themselves out I'm sure. :)

I always worry about stuff I say being destructive. Um, I've realized that I'm very poor at recognizing humor and that I take things literally.

I also often hear sounds speaking to me. Like there was a dog squeak toy I would frequently hear and it would repeat the same words in the same pattern.

I think the other thing about self-love is embracing imperfection, which can be very difficult but makes sense. There are things that become inherently part of us, but we're all human and we've got to see the good in what we initially label as bad.

I don't always recognize humour either, and some of my unusual traits are jumping up and down in excitement, pacing, picking my eyebrows when stressed. I also have a bad computer addiction but I forgive myself after and persevere.

The issue with spirituality I feel is that people try to learn ideology, which while valid is not the whole picture and can lead to 'spiritual materialism' (masking), when a large component is that as children we're already our genuine selves or 'spiritual masters'.
