Thanks! Share it with your friends!


I posted a video called loving with major depressive disorder a while back. I’ve been going to therapy for depression and anxiety for a year and a half now, and a lot has changed. For the better. I am so thankful to be where I’m at and I want to share this message of hope and positivity with you all.

I'm sorry. IMO.This does NOT marry up. What the heck are you going to Dialectical Behaviour Therapy( DBT), for major depressive symptoms. For anyone who is interested in knowing the symptoms of MDD, this may help;

THANK YOU so much for this video!!!

@jukio02 says:

I would never use therapy. It's for weak minds. I'm tough.

@user-mi5tf6he2p says:

I really needed to see this. Thank you for speaking out . Words can't explain how this has gave me a different approach before my first therapy session starts

@Truth_seeker_99 says:

You had depression since 12 years old? How fake can you be? Like how desperate are you for content. You know why you family's not letting you take the meds? Cause it's all in your mind.

If there's even a hint of truth about you feeling lonely or empty, that is a normal feeling, feel it and move on do something productive like this youtube channel of yours. It's a damn beautiful life, you should be grateful you have what a lot of people would beg to have. You have a complete body, you're not bedridden, you're not struggling to breath, you're not in a warzone, not starving, not in a rotting 3rd world country.

You believe you have depression because you claim you have it, idgaf if a "professional" say I have depression, it's all in the mind reject the idea and you don't have it.

I came from a 3rd world country, and I worked hard and struggled to survive and to be here where I'm at right now. Growing up struggling I didn't had time to cry and say "I'm depressed" cause I had to work and earn to provide food on the table for my brothers. You probably need to travel and see how people struggle in life to open your eyes and get over your self entitlement. Life is what you make it, it's always a choice, Choose to be happy and you'll see all good things.

First world self entitled people have too much time to think about useless stuff that you make up things in your head. Get over yourself, we're just mere dots in this Universe, live your beautiful life to the fullest and stfu with your pretentious Depression rant.

Alana. I have my last assessment for DBT therapy this upcoming week and I was so close to just canceling the appointment because I’m so convinced that my life will never let me catch a break for as long as I live, no matter what I do, because I’m just an unlucky person. When you said “this is your sign” and described exactly how I currently feel and I’d regret not going a year from now, I began to cry. You are glowing and radiating true peace. I’m going to do it for myself

Sending love and light to you

i'm just grateful for your existence honestly, thank you for being here.

@gabrielas1986 says:

Thank you for posting this. I think a lot people from our generation are interested in therapy but we have a lot people from other generations like our parents who are really against the idea. I agree with what you say about how people dismissing your need to go to therapy are putting your life at risk. I started therapy when I was 21 against my family's will and its the best thing I ever did. I am 30 now and theyre still against it despite all of the progress i've made.

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also
ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
– 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4 KJV

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:13 KJV


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
– John 3:16 KJV

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:17

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
– John 14:6 KJV

@Veronica-tk9rl says:

you have no idea how many people how just helped. I'm booking my therapy as we speak after over a year away. Thank you.

@rba4377 says:

Highly recomend the book/audio book Lost connections by Johann Hari about depression. He talks to the main people in the field all over the world about the topic and helped me so much to understand my depression.

@roskywalkerr says:

im so glad i came across this video. currently struggling really bad and im glad you touched on the working subject. i currently have been overworking myself on top of having depression & anxiety, so i finally made the decision to put my mental health first. finally making the decision to get therapy and im not going to work crazy full time hours anymore if i simply cannot handle it. i recently got offered a part time opportunity and im definitely going to take it and fully focus on my mental health. my mental health is 100% more important than a job or money. i needed to hear you touch on that. thank you so much!! you really are helping

@jameshetfield9999 says:

Hey. you seem like an awesome person. Anyways you just popped up because I was looking at depression stuff. I’ve have had major depressive disorder for 20 years. I’ve been snoring painkillers for 20 years. I was able to completely mask the depression in the room completely normal life for 20 years. I’m still gonna keep doing it. It’s just what’s happening now is my girlfriend wants to have a kid. I snort my stuff in front of her she knows that. She has no idea why I do it she thinks I do it because I’m addicted which I am. So I’m a mess. She’s never smoked weed she’s like the perfect person and I’ve never seen that before. The point is I can’t be a father because I’m gone. I am so long gone. So I was just looking up stuff on what to say to tell her all this and your channel popped up in I see how your life has changed and it’s like colors and butterflies and flowers. I haven’t posted YouTube videos for years and I looked at the videos just now and it’s just me lifting weights and a video of me telling everyone look how much better looking I am than all of you, like are you kidding me. If I didn’t have the money I had I would be so and bad bad bad shape anyways I don’t know.
You’re a fellow depression person and you just did everything right I had a fight it and do you have a great life that’s all. I love animals. I don’t eat pork I don’t eat beef. I don’t drink milk I drink soy milk. I have a dog. And when I look in the mirror I see a person who it’s just so lost and gone but I see someone I can have a little bit of respect for because of my love for animals and stuff and especially dogs. And I’m just rambling now because I’m gonna put this phone down after this message in the snort more stuff. So that’s it
