    Lana73 got a reaction from LaLa in Depressed   
    Sounds like a very stressful situation, Andromeda.. Your father probably feels worthless himself and takes out his frustration with his life out on you and your mom.
    Think about all the future job possibilities that will come your way once you pass your exams. Think of it is a temporary phase in your life that will end eventually. Things do, change for the best, just not as fast as we want them to....

    What / which is the part of you that you're missing? Do you think she's really gone or only has been intimidated and doesn't want to show up?
    It's great that your early childhood was happy; you have a good "basis" for your life, despite the times that came after (and seem blur now). Memories can sometimes be very comforting to me. Can you find some comfort in them, too?
    I think children and (at least some?) teens in general can enjoy strong feelings of happiness more intensively than adults, or rather; they "need less to achieve them". But that doesn't mean that you can never feel very happy again. There are some states (as being in love ) and some moments / occasions when intensive feelings of happiness can come again. However, I'd say it's better to accept the fact that it will never be the same (in frequency and maybe also intensity, I don't know) as it was in the happiest times of childhood. (But there's also another thing to consider: Our memory is selective. You remember the happy times but almost not their unpleasant moments (and the ordinary-ones are totally forgotten!!!), but it doesn't mean that in the happy times, everything was perfect. It's an illusion created by our memory.)
    Ou, it seems I'm too pessimistic here . But what I want to say is that... we can profit from the happy moments of our past and can have a faith in the future happy moments. But most of all, we should enjoy the present "better moments" as much as we currently can. I know it's sometimes quite hard ...
    I'm sorry if this "babbling" of mine is just useless ... These are definitely thoughts I need to remember as well, so... that's probably why I'm writing so much about it...
    Take care!

    Hey Ralph,
    I like your idea about continuing your education. This is something that I would like to do in the future.
    I know it is not easy to have a full time job and to go to school but there are a lot of programs that offer online classes.

    I'm so happy for you Ralph. I agree that it will be a good experiment. Just remember there are always other factors that can cause or add to your feelings of isolation. There is no day of the week that makes me feel a little lonely but a particular frame a mind. What does a normal saturday consist of that you might be missing?

    Hi Ralph,
    I am glad that your depression is "taking easy on you". You mentioned about acceptance. That is a huge progress. I hope you were talking about the things that we can't change because that is when we need to accept the reality.
    I can relate to feeling isolated. With me it usually happens on Sunday when I have nothing to do. Saturdays I am usually busy doing errands, but most Sundays are a nightmare for me. Feel very lonely and empty.
