Why on earth do people glamorize depression?
There is nothing slightly romantic about the insidiousness which is depression, nor the darkness it covers you with, or the rollercoaster ride into the deepest vaults of your unlocked mind now running amok with Dementor’s acting as your soul sucking companions and ricocheting through your brain with the malicious and malignant intention of ripping your sanity out through your skull … so tell me again, what is so idyllic about that?
“Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experienced. . . . It is that absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again. The absence of hope. That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad. Sad hurts but it’s a healthy feeling. It is a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different.”
