So, I'm not sure how you guys feel, but me and some other people I've been talking with have felt similar - that summer can bring depression.

Do any of you suffer from summer depression? And if so, what do you do to overcome it?

Sometimes summer can make me feel depressed. Its usually because I feel lazy and unmotivated, sleep in late, do nothing, etc and that makes me start hating myself.....and yeah, kinda goes from there.

But just as summer can make me feel bad, the fact that I have weeks to do anything at all, no homework, no stress, I can usually pick up a new hobby.

But everything that lives is born to die
And so I say to you that nothing really matters
And all you do is stand and cry.

Summer tends to make me depressed simply because while it seems everyone else is out with friends having an amazing time and all that, I'm almost always stuck at home, bored, and insecure.

I try to occupy myself with other things, and try to discover new things that I might like. Like new hobbies, stuff like that. And focus on the good things about summer, simple things that make it summer

I agree ^^. Everyone seems to be going out every day to the mall with friends or going on a cruise or something outrageously awesome like that and I'm at home like "Yay, That 70's Show reruns..!"

Well I guess a way to cure summer depression is reading this thread in order to know that you're not the only one sitting on your computer bored out of your mind.

This summarises my life, though it's generally all year rather than just Summer
Meh.

I just do things I want to do in Summer, I don't try to actively avoid becoming depressed, I guess I just try to get out more and do something I like (go to take some random photography, paint a random picture)...

I agree with whats been said tbh, but I feel like that all year round so its not too much different. The things that really get me are when everyone else is going out doing summer things and Im always at home or the fact that I have to cover up my self harm, because its warm in the summer.
