When you dont feel like your former self, the biggest burden you have to carry in life is your life. The last thoughts of happiness in your life seem so distant that you dont recognize the person you once were. You want your life to end but sometimes putting in that effort to end it seems impossible. We are trapped underneath the weight of our failures, where we feel we deserve to be.
Depression is When you want to be happy but the tears running down your face and the burning inside your heart are to much to live with, you feel as if your nothing more then a vessel wondering an empty world where noone can see you and the thought of dying is the best you can possible have.

excuse me Mr.First person published on this page YOU ARE WRONG. Not to pooh pooh your idea of "depression" but what you've described sounds a fuck of a lot like emo.
being depressed dont mean you wear black 24/7 or necissarily that you slit your wrists. theres lots of types of depression, bi-polar, clinical etc. depression is a mental illness, dont treat ppl with it like they're bloody tryhard attentions seekers, thats what the world has emos for=D give depr. people a break, coz you wont be helping their cause.

The sensation of falling off the Golden Gate Bridge every single day.

...I sincerely pray that I never wake up to find myself doing it in real life...

Have you ever noticed that 'depression' and 'drown' begin with the same letter?

Depression can open your eyes in frightening ways.

Every day, minute, SECOND, is painful. You have hate and pain running through your veins constantly that it controls you. Every cell in your body hates your existence and screams at you to end it all. You constantly think and wonder WHY!? Why were you the one who ended up in this life. Why did you grow up to be the miserable one.

Every night is long and dark, as you lie awake and feel too afraid to sleep, but in too much pain to remain conscious. Every morning you wake up and the familiar dark thoughts envelop you as you realize you have to exist for another horrible day.

It is a feeling of absolute loneliness. You feel that you have no one, yet everyone else has everyone. You look around at all the people you know enjoying friends and family and relationships andwonder why you're alone. Just so utterly alone.

You constantly think "Why am I still here? What am I doing?"... You wish you could just exist in a world of sleep where you didn't really have to live or think or breathe. Nothing makes sense to you or gives you comfort except for the concept of non-existence... Suicide. Suicide is the only thing that makes sense to you. Non-existence seems like the only sensible solution. You despise every second you exist on Earth.
Its like looking at the world through a camera lens, but the lens has a filter on it to make every single thing you see and experience look disgusting, terrible, dark, awful, hateful. depression

Being smothered by sadness, with no good reason to feel that way. Kind of like you live underneath a pile of crap, that's the best I can describe it. Things just can't make you happy anymore.
Yeah, depression is a bitch.

When you've felt like the world has been against you for so long, that you've become numb to everything.
It's not a joke.

A place that can only be seen by those that have had their wings broken and have fallen below the clouds. The ground there is dark, and damp, and cold. The air there makes your mouth stick together like mud, making it physically hard to speak, and it freezes your bones, making it near impossible for them to move. The people that still live above the clouds call out to you, they say "don't sit around like that, can't you see how beautiful the sun is? Be grateful!" When they do not understand that you cannot see the sun, only the underside of the clouds. It is possible to get out of this place once you are there, many people just have to wait for their wings to heal, and then remember how to fly again to get into the sunlight. But many also rot like a sitting hen after their wings have healed, for they do not remember how to fly even if it is possible, or they get lost on their way up and decide it too scary, only to plummet down again. The only way back up from there is if someone who can fly decides to come down and carry you up, but it this world, that is one in a million.
"Depression is like a dark, ongoing tunnel. You just stop because you don't see the point when you can't see the light at the end."
