Best Ways to Cope With Depression

lubbock98
As a person who suffers from it himself I know how it feel and I want to help.

The Top Ten

1 Never give up

Sometimes I start to feel really unhappy, but I always try to overcome it. It doesn't always work, but as long as I try, I feel like I'll be okay. - Elric-san

I constantly have to remind myself that it will be okay - Brobusky

2 Get professional help

Even though it's really hard to never give if you get help it can help you cope with your depression and manage it on your own which makes it easier to not give up - Blessthehorizon

I saw a therapist a few times and she was useless. The only people who can help you is you and maybe some really close friends or family. Not some random stranger you go to for an interview every two weeks. - Catlover2004

Doesn't have to be professional just some kind of help - lubbock98

3 Know you are not alone

You are not the only one feeling these things, everyone's through it - lubbock98

4 Do not cut

Easier said than done. Once you do it once, it feels like it's near impossible to stop. But you CAN stop. I believe in every single on of you beautiful people out there. Please, don't give up, and get help. Your life will be so much better. - SansTheComic

I cut, I try to stop but I can't help myself :/ - Brobusky

Self harm does nothing, it is a temporary fix that just leads to more pain later - lubbock98

5 Have a supportive friend

Find a friend who can keep you accountable and cheer you up - lubbock98

6 Spend time with friends

The best friend is the buddy who can help you in the diffuclt moment - belarbi

7 Stay busy

My depression is a gentleman. He taps me on the shoulder when I'm not occupied and says (in a British accent) "Oh, I see that you're not doing anything. Here, worry about everything and think horrible things to fill your time." Of course this is personification, but that's basically what happens. And it's not fun. You really should keep yourself occupied. Read a book, draw, let out your anger by shouting at dragons in Skyrim, anything really. - Merilille

I struggled with depression, going to the gym helped me stay busy, when I wasn't at school, I was at the gym, because naturally it makes you feel good and helps relieve stress. - Stevenuniversefangirl
