The Depression is Calling…

I’m depressed again and I don’t know why. Somehow when this happens, I feel the need to find a significant other. Maybe I think that it will help with my depression or maybe I just need that close connection. I feel like something is missing in my life. I don’t know whether it’s the BPD or if I really am lacking something.

The One

Why is finding a significant other such an important thing? We can find joy in friends, family, hobbies, really anything. Is it something about an unconditional love that we strive for? Or is it to find our other half? But why? Why are we not good enough for ourselves? It’s normal and healthy for humans to strive for relationships. I just don’t know why there is such an emphasis to get a significant other as soon as possible. I believe that some of us aren’t meant to have one, and that’s ok. Or maybe given circumstances it just hasn’t worked out with anyone, which is perfectly fine too. Is it really our purpose to find someone and procreate? It’s hard enough to love ourselves, and to find someone else to do it seems amazing yet sometimes not necessary. Sometimes self love and the love from family and friends is enough to suffice. Thoughts?

Interpreting and Control

I just watched a video saying that life is how you interpret it. You have to try and be positive and stay on the bright side to reduce anxiety/depression/etc. No kidding! If we really had a choice do you think we would be hiding in our rooms for days on end? Sometimes it’s not a choice. It’s just how we are wired, and that’s ok. But it just bothers me when people say just be positive. No, it’s not that simple. I wouldn’t have depression and I would make this all go away if it was that simple to just look on the bright side.

Now I feel like my argument is giving us loss of control. Which I know, is the worst thing to do. I’ve just accepted that this is how my brain works and sometimes thinking on the positive side doesn’t work for me. I think we can have control and still not be positive. When that happens, I am aware of my thoughts and know that they happen. What do you guys think about this topic?

Just Surviving Over Here

It’s funny how some people have to work so hard to survive and it comes so naturally to others. Yes, I compare myself to others and yes, I also know that I shouldn’t do that. They haven’t been what I’ve been through. It’s just so difficult seeing people happy and smiling and genuinely enjoying themselves. It’s like ice cream. I get one lick and they get the large cone with sprinkles and a cherry on top. I know that life isn’t fair and I have accepted that, I just wish that life would cut me a bigger break. I want that ice cream cone for myself.
