I recently have had some issues battling depressive thoughts because of the lack of support I have received all throughout my life, especially through the family. I have a stutter and recently diagnosed with Juvenile Myclonic Epilepsy. Instead of my family supporting me, they made me feel like my seizures are my fault for allowing them to happen, I received no support from them, only anger and spite.
This sent me on a roller coaster of emotions, including hate for my family for not treating me well, and confusion on how to react because they are my family. I became depressed, and it has not been easy to stay positive about life with all this whirling around me.
So how do we fix this? I believe that depression can be solved on the outside looking in, In my case, my fiance saved me from spiraling out of control, she cared for me when I was sad, she talked me out of believing lies my depression was leading me to believe, she genuinely saved me from getting any worse. I believe this is how the world can cure depression. By caring for as many people as we can, we never know how bad someone has it, or if they are battling depression or anxiety, so we have to make sure that we spread love to as many people as we can.
Everybody needs love, and love can cure hopelessness and abandonment, we must love everyone we come into contact with deeply, so they know we genuinely care about them, and we cannot just give up no matter the cost. It is a process and we must take this as a case by case issue, helping everyone we come into contact with.
Together we can cure depression through love and positivity.
