Everybodeh's so sad. ._. My brain cannot take the sadness. And I have no idea how to help, other than this: I love all of you guys, and I know we all love each other. No matter what happens, we'll always be here for each other. *sickly-sweet Disney-esque music starts to play* e_e SHUT UP I'M BEING SERIOUS. *throws a rock at a random radio, killing the music* Anyway. ._. Yeah.

Even if you feel depressed, just try to be happy about the things you DO have. I'm not saying you should focus on all the starving children in Whereevertheheck-stan, since that typically just makes people feel worse. I mean....take a moment to just sit down in a place you like to be (your room, the library, a park, etc.), close your eyes for a moment, open them, and name off the colors you can see. Imagine what it'd be like if all you saw was black and white. That would make life SO much more depressing. Now imagine not being able to see. Try to focus on sounds. Play music you like but haven't heard in a while. Focus on the instruments being played. Try to identify each one. Go get some food, maybe something with a lot of ingredients like soup. Without looking at the label, smell it and try to guess each ingredient. Then taste it and guess again.

Just do anything that helps you to appreciate your senses. (That's not illegal of course. XD No drugs, no alcohol.)

Life is hard, sometimes. But it's not as bad as it seems if you just slow down for a bit and enjoy being alive. Keep in mind that cats and most other carnivores can't taste sweet. Know that dogs can't see green. Remember that moles are practically blind. Know that scientists can track a comet throughout the universe, and know where its going to be 5, 10, 15, 100 years from now, but...you probably had a dream last night. And scientists still aren't totally sure how or why you had that dream. And yet, it happened anyway. ;)

That's what I try. It generally works.. but a sad fact is that during serious depression, music cannot be appreciated and neither can movies. I am avidly frightened of depression, because I believe that is where I am going wrong in my writing productivity. Depression usually reduces creativity and more angry venting poems. Angry venting poems usually suck. So.
Studies have linked creativity to depression and bipolar disorder. So that is possibly why writers are often caught with this plague.

Why? It is a question I am worth asking; you need a reason to have that possibility, M and C. Why? Why? Why? Why? ._. My friends; they’re not my friends any more because they have such things as called “girlfriends” and “boyfriends”. And, they are going on dates… <:^C WE ARE IN FREAKING GRADE SIX! Even people who are in Grade 5 are dating and they are friggin ten year olds. What the heck has gone on with life? What are these people; who are these people; what do they want? C is going out with M; oh, how lovely. Now, get back to your desk before I yell at both of you since both of you are my friends. Both of you were friends; not anything more than that. Calm down on the hugging and the maturity; you have more in your lives to look forward to than “dating” each other or whatever it is you call it, idiots. You aren’t even my friends anymore because of this and I don’t get why; some people are dating in Grade 4. What the heck is this nonsense? I mean, I know I like someone. But not more than a friend now. She is nice, a good friend but yeah, she is nothing else than that so calm down with whatever the heck you are doing. Stop hugging, kissing, dating, loving each other. Start off as friends, then when you get into about Year 10, start dating because this—this is just a waste of crappy time in my life to hear rumours about it. I hate you all that aren’t my friends since you are dating people I don’t even know! ^_^ I have nobody as friends except those younger peeps. Bye now! =______=
GOD. >_>

True. :^| Chronic depression IS caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, so, no matter what you do, the depression is still going to be there. *le has been living with people with chronic depression all my life* Temporary depression can be just as tricky, too. And yes, depression sometimes equals either Bipolar I or Bipolar II, which goes hand in hand in all kinds of emotions, and writers are typically very emotional people...so... x_x Yup.

That's the thing, Max. ._. They don't REALLY love each other. Yes, they might love each other as friends, but they're still just children, and their brain chemistry is still changing, so it's next to impossible that they're ACTUALLY in love.

I feel your pain, buddy. x_x Today's world is downright insane. The media keeps telling younger and younger kids that dating is great and to follow your heart no matter what anyone else says, no matter how old you are. But that just isn't true. Dating is complicated. It's not recreation. Dating is SUPPOSED to be about trying to find someone you want to spend the rest of your life with. It's not some kind of selfish game. Following your heart is great, but if people who are more experienced than you tells you what you're doing is wrong, THEN YOU'RE MOST LIKELY WRONG, SO STOP WHATEVER IT IS YOU'RE DOING. e_e

I'm glad to know that you at least have the sense to recognize that all this kid dating nonsense is what it is, Max. <:^/ I know I don't have to tell you this, but, try not to ever give into the peer pressure of dating so early. They might LOOK happy, but they're not. They're confused and upset, even more so than you might be. That behavior is not normal, even though the media makes it look like it is.

O_e They do. But they won't, since they're all nothing but little monkeys that do what they see all the other little monkeys are doing. ._.
