“Are you depressed?”

“Are you depressed?”

No.

I am not depressed, okay?

I am not thinking of dying or having suicidal thoughts. Like, not even close.

I can still smile at pretty things and laugh when jokes are funny.

I can still hang out with people and enjoy nice days.

Actually, you’ll be amazed to know that my problems are the complete opposite of what you’re thinking.

I don’t want to die.

I want to live.

It’s just that I feel trapped and bored and claustrophobic.

There’s so much to see and a lot to do. And I somehow still find myself doing nothing at all.

The fact that I’m still stuck in this metaphorical cage of existence and not being able to figure out what I’m doing or how to get out of it, makes me sad.

Every person has a dark side.
Some wish to reveal it.
Some don’t.
But I want you to know that
Revealing your darkness is not depressive.
Rather… it’s courageous.

It’s just that,

Every person has a dark side.

Some wish to reveal it.

Some don’t.

But I want you to know that

Revealing your darkness is not depressive.

Rather… it’s courageous.

And I know that I’ve been sad for a while.

But I also know that

I can still find the light.

I can still smile.
