It’s so hard for me to be real with my feelings. I constantly lie to myself and say that tomorrow will be better and it never is. I have one traumatic event on top of another. It’s so painful. I just want to feel alive again. It’s been so hard all these years. My heart doesn’t breathe like it used to. Anyone relate? And I’m new here.

Welcome. We are glad you are posting and we can help each other understand sadness and depression. Sometimes we need extra help and don't even realize it. A few years ago, I woke up and had a horrible stomach ailment. I went to the doctor and he said I had the flu. For FIVE weeks, every morning I woke up and said, "Today, I am going to feel better." I DIDN'T! Finally, I went back to the doctor and he determined I had a parasite. If I would have been properly diagnosed in the beginning, I would not have been sick for so long. I am only telling this story because maybe something else is wrong and a further diagnosis may help. Have you considered seeing a doctor or a counselor? Hope you are feeling better today.

@Pushover I'm sorry that you have experienced so much trauma in your life. When we have experienced so much pain and hurt it's so easy to fall into depression and anxiety and eventually lose hope! Sometimes it seems that the easiest thing to do is just give up and stop trying, hence why we say "tomorrow will be better and it never is." When we have experienced so much hurt, it's easy to focus on the negatives in our lives. We stop looking for the good in people and the blessings and positivity in life. When we focus on the negatives, that's when bitterness and anger and all those other negative emotions step in and rear their ugly heads! You say that you want to feel alive again. What are those things in life that make you feel alive? If you know, don't let fear hold you back and pursue those things. I find when I can try to look past the negative things that have happened and choose to pursue joy and hope, the darkness fades a little bit more, but it is an active choice that I have to make. What brings you hope? Hold on to those things that do. For me, it's my faith, knowing that there is a God out there that loves me immensely despite my actions and circumstances and is working on my behalf. That alone brings me hope of better days ahead! Getting past depression is definitely hard. Are you seeing a therapist at all? If not I would highly recommend it. Talking to someone can definitely help lighten the burdens that you are carrying! I wish you the peace and joy that you are seeking. I don't know your spiritual beliefs, but I will be praying for you!
