Do you think I choose
To feel worthless?
To feel empty,
To feel sick to my stomach because I think too much?
To feel broken,
To feel hopeless,
Angry at myself..
To feel suicidal, sometimes without knowing a reason?
To feel the need to lay in bed all day,
Without moving a muscle,
Because getting up would just make me want to fall back down?
Depression is never a choice.
You don't choose depression.
Depression chooses you.
We don't need ignorant people to choose us, too.
You can message me on facebook, too, if you're ever feeling broken <3
Comments are appreciated!
I believe in depression, but I also believe in whining and not doing anything about it
I have no pity on someone who wont accept help or help themselves
YOU JUST TOLD ME TO OPEN UP TO YOU WTF
If you're going to criticize, please do it in a constructive manner. Don't simply call the poem "bad," and don't put down the author and target audience by describing the behavior depicted as "emo." Explain what you mean by "limited." State what you think is wrong and offer a way to go about fixing it, and do it politely.
Why wouldn't I just call it bad, if it is bad? Everyone who had read a good poem in life, will see how this poem is cheap and empty. That also, isnt the main problem. the real problem is that author trys to justifies her own emotional state, by lying to herself (and also people who read it), cause she thinks it's fine to be like that. she even looks like she is trying to define depresion, "depresion choose me blabla" oh shut it. that is called being emo, nothing more. I might be rude, but it's only my honest comment, that's it. Also by looking at this poem she put downs other who dont agree with this on provocation way "oh honey blabla". I also have comment about the author, but i will leave that for myself cause you and everyone else would say "you cant judge person just by that" .
I didn't see this as trying to justify her depression. I took it to be addressing those who look down on people with depression - those who seem to think that it's just a bad mood that the victim is choosing not to fix. Those who suffer from depression really don't choose to be down all the time. It can be brought on by multiple factors in one's life, some more severe than others. I feel like this is what the author was trying to get across. I do, however, think it could have been done differently and more effectively.
I realize we simply have a difference in opinion. The reason I reacted so passionately to your comment is because of it's bluntness and closed-minded statement. My only wish is that if you disagree with the poem and feel the need to say so, do it in a way that might help the author improve rather than criticizing so harshly without giving a reason as to why you see it that way.
she seem like kind of people, who dont have social life, and rathe stay at home then go out with people and then say "we hate people, they s*ck. we are better than everyone". why they say that? oh right, coz they fear social life . then stop hating on people that you dont even know, and face your f*kin fears, otherwise you will be in depression for long time, and later ull be sad cause u spent one of best years of life in depression, for what? not having enough b*lls to fight your fear? I might sound like someone who doesnt have depression or bad days, I do, maybe even worst, maybe not that bad as this person, but I dont just cry about it, like this poem do.
This also doesnt go for all people, someone might have real problem with depression, and cant slove it that easy, but that's something else.
You sound like you've had experience with depression and I really like your attitude of fighting against it rather than accepting it. I just didn't feel like this author was whining or sulking about it. I don't want to get into it, though, because it's simply a different opinion than yours, and it would be pointless to argue about it.
I'm really not trying to argue with you. I'm glad you've explained your comment without getting too aggressive, and I understand better why you said it. It just came across as very harsh and unhelpful to me, and that's what I had a problem with. I think that for a lot of people suffering from depression, harsh and blunt comments hurt more than they help.
i know just so well what you successfully! tried to discribe, so many of your texts are great
