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, sums it up pretty well.
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? wat
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. Everyone gets depressed, but kids these days.....ugh. Pull your bloody socks up.
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.
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.
