Imagine that there is a small pit present in a desert. The pit is pulling you downwards at a fast pace. You can see that you are drifting away from the real world and falling into an abyss. You tried once, twice, thrice and many times to climb out of the pit.
Yet, the more you have tried, the stronger has the force of the pit pulled you towards itself. After countless trials, you could see yourself drifting far away from the normal land of cherries and sunshine. All around, within the pit, you can only see the darkness, surrounded everywhere.
You don’t try anymore. You have accepted the darkness. This is what depression is like! Taking you away from the soul of life and trapping it in an empty jar of lifelessness.
“Depression is not what you misinterpret sadness as. It is a kind of emotion in which you are surprised that you can’t smile without thinking about your loss. And, every time you try to smile, your heart sobs down, with the fear of losing the smile, again. In this way, you start to believe, that you deserve the sadness. For me, this is what depression is – ‘the failure to accept that bad things don’t last, forever! “ –Biplab Roy
