Hello everyone! So yeah, Talkish Thursday starts today!! (Talkish is not really a word haha forgive me, I can’t think of other and I want something that starts with the letter T and ends with ish, so yeah, that came up.)
Before I start, I want to welcome you on this little blogging series! I tackled this series on my latest blog post but I suppose it deserves a proper introduction.
What is Talkish Thursday? It is a blogging series in which I am given a question to answer. All I need to do is answer it truthfully and elaborate it, I also need to pinpoint things so yeah, I hope this works out! That’s it, let’s start!!
My friends gave me a question, I kinda forced them because they’re not into blogging. Lol. So here it is.
How do you fight depression?
Okay, honestly, I often get depressed. There are times where I am just sitting alone in my room, facing the wall then suddenly, tears starts falling in my face. I didn’t know what to do at those times, I can’t talk about this with my parents so I just sit, I let myself finish the negative thoughts and then later on, I’ll do something I love (reading, journaling and taking a shower.) If you often get depressed too, taking a shower would help.
Sometimes, I cuddle with my cat and my puppies and it would light up my mood, somehow. I talk to them, I really do. I can tell them anything I want without them judging me in return. Sometimes I just need to let it all out so talking to them is the easiest way. Their presence comforts me and it doesn’t make me feel like I’m alone.
If I can’t take it anymore and needs someone to advise me, I talk to my friends. I have a new friend, he’s not my classmate and we only started talking last June but I feel comfortable telling what I feel to him. He really helps. Sometimes I would chat him help and he knew what’s going on. He starts to give me advise and I just read it. He doesn’t really know what’s going on with me, I just tell him that I am depressed and I need help and he started composing crazy long messages that uplifts my mood. And the best parts of his messages was that I am not alone, God is always with me. And then I end up smiling, erasing every negative thoughts of mine.
Praying also helps, I promise, it does. It seems like when you’re praying, God is already by your side comforting you. And I just love that feeling.
How about you? How do you fight depression? Please let me know in the comments below so I could use that as well. And you can also ask me a question to answer for the next Talkish Thursday.
Thank you so much for reading! ‘Til next post!
