How many people are suffering from depression but try to hide it from the world by faking a smile ?

    Unfortunately I don’t know *how many* off the top of my head, but I know I’ve had my share of depressive phases to push through. And I’m still in my early 20s and only been on the job for 3 years 👀

    Try to seek help from a professional. And at the end of the day, regardless of what these companies and some silly techies on here will have you believe, you’re a worthwhile human who deserves happiness. And your value is not defined by your job title, or TC, or pedigree.

    It’s inherent to who you are. Existing and having an inner experience gives you your worthiness. So, even at your low points, remember that you are important and the world needs you!

    I mean I completely understand that even rich people can be truly depressed, but they won't get my sympathy.

    I’m more of an anxiety kind of person myself.

      Mostly anxiety about my health and obsessing over minor symptoms. Sometimes anxious that I’m not doing well at work and nobody is telling me (not exactly rational). Really any kind of catastrophe can set it off.

      That said, therapy had been a huge help and I mostly keep this under control now.

      Sounds familiar to me. Do you take any meds? Or is it just therapy? Does therapy mean CBT?

      I did meds for a year a long tome ago but I never treated that like a long term solution. Therapy is loosely CBT, yeah. It worked for me but took a while so you’ve really got to stick with it for a while.

    feeling it bad lately. it’s mostly work related i think. just a cog in a shit machine.

      It’s easy to feel like you’re just another cog in the machine when you work for a large company or organization. Unless you are in upper management or carry some sort of influence, it’s easy to feel replaceable or not of significance.

      However, if those thoughts are causing you to feel depressed or hopeless, try your best to remind yourself that in the machines that make up the lives and hearts of our friends and loved ones, you are irreplaceable. The space you fill in their hearts, the way that your presence helps shape their lives - that’s not something that can be replaced.

      Without the cbshmng-cog, that part of their machine would be broken. They could try to patch themselves up, they could even enlist the help of a professional, but for those who care about you the most, they would never truly recover.

      Maybe this comes across as “you’re a unique snowflake” nonsense and maybe I’m being cheesy... I just don’t want you to think that you aren’t important or that you don’t matter.

    Finding out what specifically makes you depressed is good start to solving your problem. Trust me.
    Depression is usually a constant trigger, find that trigger.
