If you’re under 30 and in a relationship right now, and you’re not head over heels, get out. You are way too young to be wasting your time with someone who doesn’t make you really happy to be with them every day. There’s nothing sadder than watching 23-year-olds settle.


Just be fucking honest about how you feel about people while you’re alive.

Depression is humiliating. It turns intelligent, kind people into zombies who can’t wash a dish or change their socks. It affects the ability to think clearly, to feel anything, to ascribe value to your children, your lifelong passions, your relative good fortune. It scoops out your normal healthy ability to cope with bad days and bad news, and replaces it with an unrecognizable sludge that finds no pleasure, no delight, no point in anything outside of bed. You alienate your friends because you can’t comport yourself socially, you risk your job because you can’t concentrate, you live in moderate squalor because you have no energy to stand up, let alone take out the garbage. You become pathetic and you know it. And you have no capacity to stop the downward plunge. You have no perspective, no emotional reserves, no faith that it will get better. So you feel guilty and ashamed of your inability to deal with life like a regular human, which exacerbates the depression and the isolation.

Depression is humiliating.

If you’ve never been depressed, thank your lucky stars and back off the folks who take a pill so they can make eye contact with the grocery store cashier. No one on earth would choose the nightmare of depression over an averagely turbulent normal life.

It’s not an incapacity to cope with day to day living in the modern world. It’s an incapacity to function. At all. If you and your loved ones have been spared, every blessing to you. If depression has taken root in you or your loved ones, every blessing to you, too.

Depression is humiliating.

No one chooses it. No one deserves it. It runs in families, it ruins families. You cannot imagine what it takes to feign normalcy, to show up to work, to make a dentist appointment, to pay bills, to walk your dog, to return library books on time, to keep enough toilet paper on hand, when you are exerting most of your capacity on trying not to kill yourself. Depression is real. Just because you’ve never had it doesn’t make it imaginary. Compassion is also real. And a depressed person may cling desperately to it until they are out of the woods and they may remember your compassion for the rest of their lives as a force greater than their depression. Have a heart. Judge not lest ye be judged.

This is seriously the most accurate description of depression. Wow.

But sometimes you do get up and you fake it. You feign normalcy. You manage. For a day or a week or a month or a year, you manage to pretend you’re doing okay. Sometimes you even convince yourself.

No one can pretend forever, though. So when you fall, people are surprised. “You were doing so well!” they say. “You seemed like you were getting on just fine!”

I don’t mean that it’s permanent, that people who suffer from depression but aren’t crippled by it are just waiting for the next episode, the next relapse. But depression IS humiliating. And sometimes you try to hide that you are from the world.

That takes a toll, too. And it can’t last forever. But not all people who have depression are actually incapable of functioning. They probably shouldn’t be functioning. They probably aren’t doing it well. But it’s just as possible that someone you know is faking it every day and gets home and falls apart as it is that someone never left the house at all.
