Default Re: Struggling with Depression

I first became depressed when I was 16. It was a surreal feeling. Had no interests, always feeling hopeless, was very anti social, had no idea why I was feeling like this. I'm 21 now and I feel 100x happier now then I did when I was 16, I was in a VERY dark place. My advice is go out and socially interact with other people, we all need to connect with other people in order to feel stable. Also going to the gym helps, it really is a stress reliever.

I think becoming depressed at such a young age matured me alot and it also made me sympathize with other people when they are going through a rough time.
