What do you consider as the most depressing thing in life at the moment? Some things or people can be naturally depressing. Sadness and depression in life could be out of loneliness, lack of friendship and love, or external influences like politics and negative energy …
In your own words, what’s the most depressing thing about life, and why?
Corruption is something that l consider most depressing in life at the moment. The fact that if l want to secure a job opportunity, l must have connection without that it will be almost impossible for one to secure a job especially from the government.
The most depressing thing about life is that from the moment you are born, every second that you live brings you closer to death…. And as long as you are alive you will never be sure of where you will go after you die. ?
There is nothing depressing to me in life like watching your Life fade away but the only achievements you have had are failed dreams, unachieved targets and your so called friends are making it up the economic, social and political ladder as you can’t even know where your next meal will come from. It’s very Heartbreaking.
Some people can’t even get married especially the Youths in Kenya at the moment because they fear not being able to provide for the family. It gets even worse when you have close to 3 degrees and you are unemployed.
I’ve just read a tweet by Atteeya Sumar: “The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
Our societies reward accomplishments rather than attempts.These causes great stress,disappointment and oftentimes is the reason why individuals,who are amid great experiments with their limits and close to achieve something great,to abort their plans halfway.They simply need a push and a pat on their back to go all in and finish what they have started.
poor health. Everything is hard when health is compromised
Unrewarded effort Not knowing what will happen any moment from now makes life more depressing
freedom… especially the freedom to choose the paths we want to walk on in life. we pay for them.whether right or wrong
Almost. Just close but never enough.
Just close but never enough.
Just a mere thought of losing people I love .Death is cruel .
The fact that I see many street people sleeping along the road very early in the morning as I head work.I tend to imagine,Have they eaten?,Are they not feeling cold?
Depression is the most depressing thing in life. You might look like you are alive, but you are not really living.
I suffered depression myself for ten years. No, that’s not completely accurate, I still suffer from depression. Maybe not to the same intensity, but it’s bad enough that it can make life miserable on a frequent basis.
It’s not much fun having to look at life through s**t colored goggles, it’s not much fun feeling totally alone and isolated in this world while at the same time being surrounded by people. It’s not much fun knowing the only relief you are going to get is the few hours you are asleep, if you are lucky. It’s not much fun listening to people telling you to snap out of it, think positive, listen to music or go for long walks when all you want to do is go to sleep and never wake up. It’s understanding we crave, not platitude.
But, worse than all those things put together is the knowledge that it’s going to happen again tomorrow and the next day and the next and the next. What’s really scary is the fact you know you have no options, no alternative, other than having to face this tsunami of emotion which ranges from indifference and numbness to internal self hatred and sometimes blind fury, where death can seem like an attractive alternative to life.
So, spare a thought when someone tells you they are suffering depression and they have a smile on their face. You have no comprehension of the depths the human mind can sink to when in the grip of the invisible monster we call depression.
A smile can hide a universe of pain and suffering.
Knowing that the person you love doesnt love’s you back bacause you are not enough successful as they want their perfect partners to be.
Getting ignored by your friends,relatives and other people just because you dont follow the trend of Todays world and are happy in following your own path.
Having goals and realising that It cannot be fulfilled just because you havent given your best to fulfill it and in impressing those people who dont give a shit about you and your existence.Thats depressing.
Realizing that the grades which you think were not important were the reason for someones employment and your disappointment.
5.Realizing that you had enough potential but cannot use it because you had wasted enough time on others people entertainment that the present time doesnt gives you enough time to fulfill your goals.
Knowing that in other places on earth bombs are dropped over children.
Knowing that somewhere right now people are tortured to get them to tell what the abuser want them to.
Knowing that in a lot of places on earth people are mocked, maltreated and imprisoned because of their opinions about politics and religion, because of their skin colour and their sexlife.
Knowing that in other places in the world children are starving, vulnerable to life-threatening diseases and even the water they drink makes them sick.
Knowing that you have done someone you hold dear wrong, not having the guts to ask for forgiveness, and then they die…
When you realize that you might be having depression, but cannot do anything, from broaching the subject to the family to make an appointment with the doctor, ( fearing the stigma as you are In a society that has still not accepted mental health issues as chemical imbalances inside your brain) and the way you have to go through this unbearable pain, all silently, like whenever a door opens, then you’d be seeing a flickering light, but it will be there only for a short time, only to be extinguished by something not in your hands, and then you are again groping in the darkness. This pain is the most horrible thing one has to endure, and imagine living a life, without a good support system, at least a shoulder to lean on and cannot even cry your heart out; it must have been the saddest thing in the whole universe for such individuals.
Still I really hope that everything will turn good. There has to be a way.
The fact that everyone cares only about themselves and give little to no support when another person needs help.
