Depressed teens

:iconzodiacgal:

Ok, so one thing that has been bugging me for a very long time is the fact that so many teens claim they want to commit suicide.

I mean, really. Some of these teens “claim” that they’re going to kill themselves because they can’t hook up with someone, or they “cut” because they’re so damn depressed. :stare:

Now let me make myself clear. I am not saying that people who feel suicidal shouldn't get help and shouldn’t be supported, or that all people who feel depressed are all annoying.

I’m just pissed at the fact that so many teens get depressed over some trivial crap. I mean really, a hell of a lot of teens go through a lot worse than most of us. You’re relationship, friendship, or own personal drama are nothing compared to the kids who starve almost everyday and/or are raped and/or have abusive parents.

tl;dr I really don’t like people who cut or claim they’re suicidal over trivial crap. :icontwitchingplz:

If you have some sort of chemical defect in your body, those trivial things CAN set you off into a true depression, but I doubt the majority of teens on here actually have that.

This, and those who fish for compliments, and those who have 1-week relationships, to only then go and bitchfit bout it or wallow in self-pity of how no one seems to love them. Usually all of this is found backed up and comforted by others with similar mind-set.
What's worse is the parents don't even seem to give two fucks about it, "kids these days" may as well be wrapped up in cotton wool. Reading through previous comments,
:icondh-industries: sums it up pretty well.

Too many kids thinking that suicide is a good way to go, most is just doing it for attention

Well, I'm sure hormones and crap are behind it all. It's just that teenagers don't actually realize that it's just hormones messing with them and nothing is actually wrong in their lives.

AMEN. These kids are insulting to the people with real problems, and the people with real mental illnesses.

Teen depression does exist, but I have to agree. I fucking hate the emotards here that cut themselves, takes pictures of their cuts, and then posts them on the internet for praise and attention... They're just fucking retarded. Now for actual cutters that are suffering from depression or anxiety, you won't see them do it, or reveal their wounds to other people like it's their latest hair style or shoes- they'll just do it when they feel to be at their absolute low. Actual cutting is pretty much a negative coping mechanism... though having them see a doctor and getting prescribed medication or just having them learn better coping mechanism is a far more better solution.

Meanwhile, back in emo/scene/hipstervile you'd get a whole bunch of these half-retarded cut-glorifyiers that go about and misconstrue the difference between actual depression and being a hug-box user that wears black 24/7 because it's a 'fad'. So with that, I'll just stop with the fucking dead-horse posting and replying for now.

wait wut
i didn't know there was a valid reason to feel anything
i didn't know my feelings weren't really feelings because it was trivial
aren't we raised to focus on the trivial? and learning what not to focus on and what to actually pay attention to is part of personal growth?

Ah yes "Depression".
whiny middle class white kids almost ruined that word.
My generation (and yours maybe) and ESPECIALLY the latest spawns (I refuse to call them a generation) are all fucking pathetic.
I've never seen such spineless, dysfunctional and whiny self-entitled little shits.
The moment I saw 12 y/olds on my brothers fb page (he's 13 y/old) bitch and get "depressed" about not getting multi-hundred dollar tech for christmas, only to gain "likes" and supportive comments... I knew all hope was lost. I blame the parents. :stare:
Everyone gets depressed, but kids these days.....ugh.
Pull your bloody socks up.

I don't like fake depression either, but you know, there are some teens that suffer real depression even when they have no reason to.

"No reason to"
"real depression"

If the teen has real depression, then it's their brain making them depressed regardless if you think there's a reason to be or not. It's called a chemical imbalance.

I know,but I meant as in, no reason in their day to day life. Like, they have good friends, they have loving parents, they get nice things, make good grades, and yet they are depressed. I was thinking of the chemical imbalance making you sad even when they have good things going on. I didn't express myself correctly.

Depressed teens. Noun with adjective.

1) Teenagers suffering from depression.

2) Teenagers' ribcage collapses, forming a bloody caldera thing.

I agree and I suffer from mild depression. But that's mostly internal things I feel bad about not anything outside in the world. I mostly decide not to care unless I have too. Like my Mom's dog dying, that's something to feel sad about. Or my neighbor I help out who's dying from stage four cancer. That's something to care about. But if someone starts bitching about their trivial crap - I just ignore them because obviously they're still trying to find that meaningful thing in their life.

And, I hate it when people don't take care of it.
I take St. John's Wart for my depression. I wish people would get over whatever stupid social shame stigma about depression and just go to a doctor or take an herbal supplement or whatever. It's kinda like how we as a society don't talk about sex. It's shameful and then people talk stupid and it annoy's others. Just go to a doctor.
