Wanting to Be Left Alone

think people in my life need to realize that you can't "talk" me out of depression. You can't convince a mentally ill/bipolar person to just stop being depressed with a motivational speech or by telling me what to do. I've struggled with depression my entire life. After ten years of therapy, meds and accomplishing goals like saving money and buying a house. I got to a point of a semi stability where I'm comfortable with who I am as a person and appreciate life. But the sadness will always be there because it's how my brain is. My brain only allows me to get better to a certain point.
Absolutely true. No one can talk someone out of depression and anxiety or bipolar or any other mental challenges. These people obviously don't know shit about people that suffer with this stuff. I'm older than you and I finally learned that people in my life that want to try to tell me what to do and that they have all the answers, well first I build HIGH & STRONG boundaries for them and then add a lot of distance between me and them. I never let them in. You have to do what you need to do for you. 馃尰馃憤馃徎
