What Makes Us Like This? - August 23rd 2012, 06:19 PM

What is wrong with us?

Why can't we connect to anyone? Why don't we have proper friendships? Why can't we have a real - healthy - relationship? Why do the black clouds cover everything so that we can't even relate to anyone else?

Why can't I talk to anyone any more? Why don't I know what to say? Why can't I remember what I ever said? What do normal people even talk about?

What's so different about us that leaves us cut off and friendless? Why are some people just not worth caring about?

What the fuck?

Depression does that. It's like a massive black cloud that covers everything you do. Like chains tying you down, stopping you from being the person you could be.

Sometimes it's caused by imbalances in your brain. Sometimes it's caused by external events. Sometimes, there's no visible reason for it.

But it is beatable. This time last year I was attempting suicide, crying every day and not doing anything I enjoyed. I can't even remember most of it, it's all under this foggy cloud. This year, things aren't fixed, but they are better. I'm more sociable, I'm happier more of the time, I'm working through things and I think that I'm getting somewhere. It's a slow process, but I've made progress.

You can do it to. You might need professional help. You might even need meds. You'll definitely need people to support you, like your family. But if you can reach out to someone, anyone, then you'll have started the journey.

Do you wanna come with me? 'Cause if you do, then I should warn you - you're gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. The day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: The trip of a lifetime!

Don't trust a perfect person and don't trust a song that's flawless.
RIP Granddad Terry. I'll miss you.
