Depression isn’t…

Depression isn’t simply feeling ‘sad’ or ‘down.’
It’s waking up and all of the colors of the world are faded.
It’s feeling nothing and everything at once.
It’s nothing and everything at once.
It’s trying to go about your daily life while wearing an extremely heavy lead outfit.
It’s your mind telling you that things would be better if you weren’t here.
It’s every ounce of happiness or optimism being sucked away-leaving a mind-numbing feeling of boredom and emptiness.

It’s a serious mental illness that deserves treatment, support, and compassion.
