These times will try hard to define me
And I'll try to hold my head up high
But I've seen despair here from the inside
It's got a one track mind

And I have this feeling in my gut now
And I don't know what it is I'll find
Does anybody ever feel like
You're always one step behind

Now I'm sitting alone here in my bed
I'm waiting for an answer I don't know that I'll get
I can not stand to look in the mirror I'm failing
I'm telling you these times are hard
But they will

And I know there's someone out there somewhere
Who has it much worse than I do
But I have a dream inside a perfect life
I'd give anything just to work
It's like I'm only trying to dig my way out
Of all these things I can't

And I am sitting alone here in my bed
I'm waiting for an answer I don't know that I'll get
I cannot stand to look in the mirror I'm failing
I'm telling you these times are hard
But they will pass
They will pass
They will pass
These times are hard
But they will

These times will try hard to define me
But I will hold my head up high

Sitting alone here in my bed
I'm waiting for an answer I don't know that I'll get
I cannot stand to look in the mirror I'm failing
I'm telling you these times are hard
But they will pass

And I know there's a reason
I just keep hoping it won't be long till I see it
And maybe if we throw up our hands and believe it
I'm telling you these times are hard
But they will pass
They will pass
They will pass
These times are hard
But they will pass

Hello everybody !

I'd like to share something with you that I've been pondering about for the past weeks. Maybe it helps those of you who find themselves in a similar situation:


I've arrived at a point of my life where I suffer from a loss of perspective, the gradual lack of faith and the helplessness of being stuck, lacking the strength to push through. I'm disappointed by people, friends and the way they treat each other.
The old notion of "Do well, be kind and study hard, then you'll make it !" had suffered through on too many clashes
with "harsh reality" and had crumbled. It used to keep me going and for years, I could firmly believe in it without falter or doubt.
And now, there was only a lack of faith - that and disappointment.

Even worse was the nagging feeling that I disappointed little me - the boy I once was.

You see, at some point during his life, the boy started to turn from a living being into a simple machination, an automaton when things got really ugly. It might have been the unfortunate family situation he was in, maybe it was being ostracized by his peers, the guess is anyone's. Since he apparently wasn't expected to be, he turned to mere function.
The development department was closed down and the factory only focused on meeting the production quotas.
It worked, but that was all it did - it didn't give no comfort, no warmth and only false sense of fulfilment
("I did what is expected of me, so I did well.").

Looking back, I feel incredibly sad for the little one; he narrowed down his focus of the world so that he would be able to perform sufficiently - for the sole sake of performance, it sees now. He put all the beautiful things he encountered on the back seat for
"the time when I can finally do what I want !".

Being allegedly at this point now, I feel incredibly guilty of not meeting the expectations of little me.
In regard to the many things he put on the shelf for later on and all the happiness he had sacrificed for me,
I feel like I disappointed him. He strived so hard to create the foundation and framework for me to make use of and I don't follow up.
I wonder why I have such a hard time lifting the veil and doing away with all the mental restrictions and halts that little me put in place in order to make himself "work".

I've been struggling to find something to hold onto for the last weeks; most of the things I used to believe in had fallen to pieces and the what was left deteriorated upon closer inspection. I felt like people had been lying to me about life, how people treat each other and many other things.
Confronted with this bleak thoughts (call it "harsh reality", if you want to), I began to pity little me for giving away so much of himself for . . . well, this. I wondered how he could so firmly believe, how he managed to push through and wither all the dark clouds ?
What gave him the strength to carry on ? Was it simply because there was no alternative ? Because he "had" to ?

At some point, I began to envy him for his determination. Nowadays, I have a hard time finding something to believe in.
Being an adult (oh, how much I loathe the term) it's tough to wither the storms, always hoping for the silver lining on the horizont, occasionally catching a glimpse of it, only to have a new stormfront cover it up again.
Friendly words and encouragement is hard to come by in this world, especially if you're surrounded by the wrong people.
I wished for somebody to believe in me; someone who'd tell me that I'm going to make my way, no matter the odds.
Somebody who believed that I could do, because it's me. Backed up by that trust, I could get up and go against the storm again.

Pondering these throught, I realized that there was somebody who had put all his trust in me. Someone who was so convinced of my ability and determination that he could put himself through the toughest of times without losing his faith.
He believes so firmly in me that he gave all of his hopes and dreams, all the things he put on the shelf to me for safekeeping.
He was certain that I would succeed where he couldn't and he did everything he could to support me.

Who believes in me ? The little boy - little me - does. He used the determination he had to create the trust I need now.
A little boy put all his hopes in me
Trusts me implicitly.


I guess that will do. :strong:

This year on September 4th marks the fifth year my grandpa had been dead. It's really hard every year because I loved my grandpa a lot. My little sister and I would go over to our grandparents' house every Friday when we were little so my grandpa was like a second dad to me. My grandpa's death triggered my depression and I've struggled with it ever sense.

I take meds for it but sometimes they don't work and my friends don't understand. It's hard to disappoint the people I love when I'm depressed
:(

I'm currently trying to cope with depression right now and even the littlest things can make me remember why I'm worthless
It's hard for me to tell you this because I'm used to smiling and saying I'm fine I've tried getting help but nobody listened to me and they didn't care because I'm always the loud and crazy person in the group so no one takes me seriously


I'm not telling you this to get attention or anything thing like that
I'm just trying to find help

You are not worthless.  You have a purpose and calling on this earth.  Thank you for sharing with us even though it's hard, it means a lot.  If you need help, you keep saying so until someone listens.  Obviously with you sharing with us, you want a way out of this, you keep saying that until you get the help you're looking for.  Find someone that will take you seriously and tell them.  Thank you for sharing with us.  We're here for you if you need someone to talk to.  Hang in there, you don't have to fight this battle alone.  You can get through this, don't lose hope.  You will get out of this storm, it will not go on forever.  :huggle:
