How to cure depression

 

  1.  Acknowledge that you are depressed and need to get better
  2.  Go to Coldstone and get your favorite ice cream
  3.  Play with all the puppies you can
  4.  Go to the beach and run barefoot on the warm sand
  5.  Build the biggest sandcastle you can make
  6.  Spend time with the friends you’ve accidentally disassociated from
  7.  Get out of bed more and sleep less
  8.  Consider watching a new series, but end up watching the entire series of Friends again
  9.  Get on Youtube and watch conspiracy videos that make you question reality
  10.  Work and make money, because money will make you happy
  11.  Treat yourself, buy new clothes, a car maybe?
  12.  Buy candy from your childhood to remind you of happier times and realize that candy actually tasted terrible
  13.  Look into the mirror and tell yourself how awesome you are
  14.  R̶e̶a̶l̶i̶z̶e̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶’̶r̶e̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶g̶r̶e̶s̶s̶

 

No that’s not good! No, you can overcome this, stay positive!

  1. Go outside and draw more, you used to be good at this

1̶5̶.̶ ̶R̶e̶a̶l̶i̶z̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶a̶r̶t̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶c̶o̶m̶p̶l̶e̶t̶e̶ ̶s̶h̶i̶t̶ ̶r̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶n̶o̶w̶

1̶6̶.̶ ̶R̶e̶a̶l̶i̶z̶e̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶s̶u̶c̶k̶ ̶a̶t̶ ̶e̶v̶e̶r̶y̶t̶h̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶u̶s̶e̶d̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶g̶o̶o̶d̶ ̶a̶t̶

 

Goddammit I know you’re fucking better than this!!!

  1. Okay, seriously, focus on positivity for once in your life
  2. Try to find a comfortable position to lay in while you read a new book
  3. Go to the gym because if you’re physically stronger you’ll be mentally stronger too, right?

 

I’m running out of things I can do…

  1. Start ignoring texts more because people are draining
  2. Skip some of your classes because it’s too much to get yourself to get up
  3. Sleep more because no one can hurt you when you’re not awake
  4. Shower less because it takes so much work to push yourself to do that again

 

Shit I’m fully depressed again.

  1. I guess you can start from number 1 again…
