  • “Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden. It is easier to say, "My tooth is aching" than to say "My heart is broken”.”
  • “I am bent, but not broken. I am scared, but not disfigured. I am sad, but not hopeless. I am tired, but not powerless. I am angry, but not bitter. I am depressed, but not giving up.”
  • “Having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. It's the fear of failure, but no urge to be productive. It's wanting friends, but hating socializing. It's wanting to be alone, but not wanting to be lonely. It's feeling everything at once then feeling paralyzing numb.”
  • “Having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. It’s the fear of failure, but no urge to be productive. It wants friends, but hate socializing. It’s wanting to be alone, but not wanting to be lonely. It’s feeling everything at once then feeling paralyzing numb.”

  • “Anyone who has actually been that sad can tell you that there’s nothing beautiful or literary or mysterious about depression.”
  • "When you're surrounded by all these people, it can be even lonelier than when you're by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don't feel like you can trust anybody or talk to anybody, you feel like you're really alone."
  • "You are allowed to feel messed up and inside out. It doesn't mean you're defective - it just means you're human."
  • "Depression is the overwhelming sense of numbness and the desire for anything that can help you make it from one day to the next."
  • “Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not, and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.”
  • "When a depressed person shrinks away from your touch it does not mean she is rejecting you. Rather she is protecting you from the foul, destructive evil which she believes is the essence of her being and which she believes can injure you."
  • "She says she's fine but she's going insane. She says she feels good but she's in a lot of pain. She says it's nothing but it's really a lot. she says she's okay. But really she's not." 
  • "That's the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it's impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key."

A mother's love is the biggest healer. My mom was there with me when I thought that I have lost everything in life. She calmed me down and said that no matter what the situation is she believes me. From that day onwards whenever bad thoughts encounter me, I always think of my mom.

After reading this article I realized that only you can decide how you are going to deal with life. There is a saying, "The moon stays bright when it does not avoid the night." So you can only shine when you have been through the worst phases.

I failed in an exam after preparing consecutively for two years, it shook me from within. Everyone thought that now I will lose hope and will not be able to crack the exam. I went on to give it my best shot this time. I cracked the exam and got a government job.

Being positive even in the darkest of times is a sign of a great human being. Sometimes we are not in the condition to be happy but that does not mean we lose all the hopes. Maybe the time is not good now but it will surely be in near future.
