YOU ARE NOT DEPRESSED, STOP IT!



Sorry, but somebody had to say it.

This video focuses on mood depression, not clinical depression. Furthermore, this is not a purported “cure” for depression. This is a call to live in reality, you own depression, depression does not own you. The Sapir Whorf Hypothesis, and General Semantics have illustrated how our words can become our prisons. The labels “Disorder” “Disease” “Depressed,” when internalized, can create a reality filled with suffering that extends beyond the biochemical. Don't get me wrong, "Chemical Imbalances" are real, but that can be a gross oversimplification of what's going on. There's a great article called "Moving Beyond ‘Chemical Imbalance’ Theory of Depression" from the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation (https://goo.gl/28UkYk) that I encourage everyone to read.

If you know anyone suffering that may need help immediately, call the 24-hour, toll-free confidential National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273- 8255 or go to www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org .

    Note: This video focuses on MOOD depression, not clinical depression. Furthermore, this is not a purported “cure” for depression. This is a call to live in reality, to separate the ailment from the person who colloquially uses the phrase "I'm depressed", which we may have said to ourselves at a low period in our lives. Depression is not YOU, depression does not own you, you own it. It is something that you are the witness of. The witness of Depression is not Depressed. Experiencing depression doesn't mean you identify yourself with depression. If you have an open mind, I urge you to sit with this. Who is the witness of thoughts? Stay in this place. Many of us have come to protect and defend our prisons but this has never served us. Nutrition change, exercise, natural medicine, in some cases pharmaceutical and psychotropic medication, SPECT scan to diagnose brain health (you are not stuck with the brain you have, you can improve its health). All of these tactics should be explored to treat depression symptoms.

    I say this with great love but believe it or not, we can hate our depression so much that it can become a part of our life story, our identity, and we may begin to unconsciously protect it. We can fall into the trap of learned helplessness (I have personal experience with this).The Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis and General Semantics have illustrated how our words can become our prisons. But, never forget that YOU are the pure witness, you are the sky. Do not identify with what comes and goes.

    FYI: As a general rule, people shouldn't blindly trust any source, or authority even if they speak with confidence, have obtained a high-level degree, a peer reviewed journal entry, a well made youtube video, or can cite a source. Our individual responsibility should be to maintain a healthy skepticism about everyone and everything. Only until we personally have looked carefully at the data ourselves and find that the data is repeatable should we formulate our opinions. Anything else would be intellectual laziness. Love and peace guys.

    whenever i show someone my poems they're like your depressed or r u okay? i mean yes the poem is about my feelings but it was kinda hard for me to the poems out there in the first place because i was scared to say what was going on to tell but the poems are for my own comfort and some people like some are like ok? some don't care it's fine with me. and it's not like i went to the doctors and they said that i had depression so when i put the poem here for all to read don't say im depressed i don't like negative comments about my poems.

    i think this is the best poem i've written.

    Pain
    my heart beats fast
    fast like a bullet train
    Everyday is the pain
    happiness doesn't last

    My head bangs restlessly
    peace is a desire i can't have
    they say you never laugh
    i am sitting here hopelessly

    My mouth opens in a scream
    no escaping this nightmare
    They try to help but don't care
    Cause they're living a dream

    My lungs are running out of air
    I can't even breathe
    every breath is like a heave
    I am hiding in my lair

    water in my eyes
    Uncontrollably the tears rush
    down my cheek trying to hush
    myself and quiten the cries

    Anyone just thinking. Yo shut the fuck up

  • Posted on Apr 23, 2020 at 14:55 pm

    I hate when people say let it go be happy think happy thoughts..

  • Posted on Apr 23, 2020 at 17:03 pm

    Delete your video man, I get that you are talking about mood depression but people with clinical depression see this and are basically being told that the thing they have been struggling with for years isn’t real or they don’t have it you’ve certainly specified what you meant (after all of the backlash) but not everyone is going to read you description or go down to the comments because usually they are mad and just click off. You’re doing more harm then good just delete it

    Well I guess my fully trained psychiatrist was wrong diagnosing me

  • Posted on Apr 23, 2020 at 23:38 pm

    YouTube should bad channels like this that spread misinformation.
    Depression doesn't "come and go", that sadness.

  • Posted on Apr 24, 2020 at 00:11 am

    I need someone to talk with right now.

  • Posted on Apr 24, 2020 at 02:58 am

    I wish it was that easy. It’s genetic it doesn’t come and go in that case the sky moves with depression

    And some time the linger around for ever

    This video made me feel better

  • Posted on Apr 24, 2020 at 05:19 am

    Another great tip is writing comedy about your experiences, explain what it’s like being you and share it with others. Hope that helps someone. It’s amazing 😉 I’ve worked through some big stuff using comedy as therapy. Wishing you all a really loving peaceful day. Hang tight, this too shall pass 😍😍😍😍😍

    Time to tell my Doctor he’s wrong after studying in a Doctors school for 10 years, because he got proved wrong by some guy on YouTube.

    Oh boy Billie ellish fans are very mad

    I'm not depressed
    I'm not sad
    I'm not happy
    I just feel empty

  • Posted on Apr 24, 2020 at 14:17 pm

    The message of this video is great, its sad to see people most likely suffering with depression staying closed minded when clearly looking for help with depression. The point is that depression comes and goes, period.

  • Posted on Apr 24, 2020 at 16:29 pm

    I only feel depressed when I hear certain words that are similar to my trigger word or people say you go..

  • Posted on Apr 24, 2020 at 17:40 pm

    Still remember when the first time i came to hospital for "depression", i told the doctor "please tell them that i am depressed,and i can't help myself".I'm pretty sure it's the only way to get cared–that's what i thought.I always feel the things that i want to do is unreachable–that's also what i have deeply in mind.Well,nothing changes except i became more and more bad and tried to commit suicide.when you hear"i'm depressed",i was actually saying"help",seriously it means"help".

  • Posted on Apr 24, 2020 at 22:30 pm

    We are not always here… thats why im depressed, i like to be alive

  • Posted on Apr 24, 2020 at 23:07 pm

    I searched up why I was worthless and found this. kinda made me feel better but doesn’t change the fact that I‘m a piece of shit

  • Posted on Apr 25, 2020 at 06:45 am

    Thank you for showing me the truth

  • Posted on Apr 25, 2020 at 07:16 am

    I lost interest in every thing and now im working on self worth dude

  • Posted on Apr 25, 2020 at 13:17 pm

    Yeah, that is not how it works. Don’t tell someone with a mental illness that they’re not something they have been suffering with.
    Depression is a mental illness, NOT an emotion. It does not “come and go.”
    And to the sky example, I made it a lil more accurate. If you are the sky, then the clouds are not mental illnesses, mental illnesses becomes a part of you, but they are not all you are as a person. The clouds are things that happen to you, what you experience. Now, if there’s a lot of dark clouds (not so good stuff), the sky (you) becomes overclouded or rainy (depressed).
    Tho, depression is a illness, it can happen to anyone, no matter what happens in their life.
    And to all my sisters and brothers – or what the fuck you identify as, idc – that are suffering with any type of illness, or emotion:
    Take your time! 🦋
    Only you know what you are going through, and only you know how you should handle your pain! 🦕
    Just give yourself another day! 🌸 Remember that you are a survivor for everyone breath you take! 💙
    It will pass, I promise ange!🧚‍♂️
    Dm me if you need someone to talk to, or you want some of my totally awesome tips to help cope! 💕🧸
    You are accepted, and if it’s not by the people around you now, move ur cute ass and find better people!
    Stay strong 👑
