I'm just so depressed right now - July 28th 2015, 08:06 PM

As the title says, I'm just so depressed right now. Everything's just going really bad like always. Like my summer. It has been the worse summer ever so far. None of my family wants to spend time with me or take me anywhere. But yet they spend time with everyone else and go places with them. The only place I went to was my cousin's dad's pool and that was only one day. I heard from my other cousin that the reason why my cousin won't take me back is because I have a mouth. Like tf. What did I say that was disrespectful? I'll tell you NOTHING! Absolutely nothing. I ain't never say anything disrespectful when I went to the pool with her.

My Nana won't take me anywhere either. The reason why is because I barley talk when I'm with her. What? To me that doesn't make any sense. But yet she'll take my sister and my cousin places with her but not me. That ain't right.

I've just been so depressed this whole summer. I haven't been this depressed in a long time. I don't know what else to do to make me happy.

Have you thought about finding other people to hang out and sitting your family down to talk to them? It seems like there might be a bit of a miscommunication on both parts. Finding some friends to hang out and spend the day with might also be helpful for you as well, since it would take your mind off your nan and cousin.

I agree with dreamer.
It sounds like a miscommunication on both ends
Sometimes things we don't think are disrespectful can be disrespectful to others. Maybe ask your cousin specifically what happened that day and you guys can talk it out. Also, maybe try sitting down with your grandma and talking. She might have hurt feelings that you don't know about. When you guys can exchange how you both are feeling, then I think there can be headway with family and making plans with them.

Also, maybe try hanging out with friends or even just going out on your own and doing things you enjoy. Sometimes we have to make ourselves happy, we can't always have people with us to make enjoy our time. It's hard, but it's worth it.

I really am sorry that you are struggling with depression. I have been down that road before and my boyfriends suffers from a mild form of depression as well. So I can relate. Keep fighting and try thinking of the positives you can find in life. If you ever want another friend or someone to talk too, you can always Private Message me!


all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
woah,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

hey...
Who are you closest to in your family ? Talk to that person about this and tell him/her how you feel . IF they have a problem with you they should tell it to you so that you know at least what you did . :/

Hey, Ashley.

This sounds like an upsetting situation. I'm sorry your family members don't seem to be treating your equally. Honestly, sometimes family members and others in our lives can do things that feel really upsetting and unfair but it actually results from miscommunication on both parts which is why it's so important to talk to them about the situation so you know why they're acting this way and also figure out ways to resolve the issues from there on.

Can you ask your cousin why she thinks "you have a mouth"? Perhaps she could have misunderstood something that you said because as Sammie said, what's felt and seen as disrespectful can vary person to person. I think it'd be worth bringing it up to her as communication can greatly improve a situation! On that note, I suggest also sitting down with your Nana and asking her to explain more clearly about her reasoning as to why she won't take you anywhere but she'll take your sister and your cousin.

In the meantime, try exploring your interests and try out new hobbies along with immersing yourself in hobbies you already enjoy. Planning out your days with things you enjoy can make you feel much better sometimes. Do you have any friends you can spend time with, or could you make efforts to make new friends? That could be good for you right now. Don't be afraid to reach out to those in your life about how you're feeling and for support also.

Take care, Ashley. Hope you feel better soon.
