First- sorry for starting two threads, both of them kind of personal in rapid succession. 

But:

Me a few months to a year ago:

Followed super morbid meme pages that were basically like "Lol nooses and razor blades, lol I want to die"

Frequently listened to a subgenre of metal literally called "Depressive Suicidal Black Metal"(DSBM)

Forced myself to read authors like Dostoevsky and Nietzsche.

Puts on a depressed philosopher persona.

Cried myself to sleep often

Me right now(For the most part)

Follows meme pages about cute animals and whatnot.

Listens to classic rock and punk

Reads Scifi and comic books, loves them.

Much happier now.

Might help anyone who gets depressed, just sayin'.

Yeah, when you are in a bad place you should look for ways out.  Don't feed the bad. 

Depression can be a very serious thing that cannot be overcome with just positive thinking and rainbow unicorns.  But while sunshine and pop music may not help, they aren't going to hurt.  And while death metal and downer books and movies might not hurt, they aren't going to help.

And don't forget to ask for help.

For me, it would depend on who you were asking for help. If it's from your doctor, I personally would hesitate. Medical records aren't really private. And a depression diagnosis has implications in life.

Sorry to say that, but it's true.

I disagree. Medical records are private, but HIPAA exists for a reason.

I was diagnosed with clinical depression nearly 10 years ago. My employer knows. People get depressed.

The point is if you need help, ask for it. I did. And life is better.

Good luck, Braeden. PM me if you want to talk / ask questions.

+1. Or I'm screwed 

Best thing that helped me was actually getting out and doing stuff. Take up a hobby!

Endless Forms Most Beautiful

“Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being,…See More

"Ideally not. Best I can tell, your complaint is that men -- particularly Asian or Korean men -- aren't into dark-skinned women. You say your parents immigrated to the U.S., so it doesn't sound like you live in Asia. You call yourself a…"

"Nope. 1. You seem to have self-loathing, low self esteem, and bad self image. 2. You live in Korea? Asian countries can be tough to deal with if you are not Asian. However, I can tell you many other countries in the world DO in fact like black…"
