Embarrassed to tell people about depression.

Should it be embarrassing to talk about depression. I  like if I talk about it to someone I will instantly feel judged. There seems to be a stigma attached to people having depression (or am I just over thinking this).

I can talk to people about it but it’s only a certain few and that’s when something really starts to get on top of me. I’ve noticed that I can give people advice if they want to hear it but I’m no good at asking for it. I think that’s mainly because I’ve always been doing things my own and never asked for help for anything even if I’m struggling with something I wouldn’t ask for help. This happend alot when I was at school I would be struggling with a question and instead of asking my teacher for help I would just end up copying the answer from my friend who 9 times out of 10 had the wrong answer 😂 and that’s kind of my mentality is just to get on with it.

Sorry for rambling a little bit was just an idea that popped in my head.

  1. Always better to tell than to lie or hide. Better for the person who tells. It can can mean freedom. That should be the desire. If others become judgmental, that’s a problem THEY have. It’s really about them.

  2. It seems more uplifting when I tell people or write a post about it. I usually don’t care about peoples opinions unless it’s something about depression. It seems to really hit home. I just need to switch off from people like that.

  3. I do believe their is a perceived stigma associated with depression but even more firmly I believe the only way to dislodge that stigma is to be open and honest. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for years and I’ve found being open about it actually helps quite a lot and very few people have considered it a weakness or flaw. Those who did ended up being the types of people I needed to make distance with. Depression’s strongest power is isolation, the urge to keep it private gives it more fuel and allows it to grow. You are not defined by depression or any mental issue you may face, they are simply experiences you are going through and you don’t have to alone. 🙂

    I hope you can feel comfortable being open about any struggle you may face and know that there are many people who can relate to you and your feelings.

    Best wishes!

    1. That really means alot. Your right I’ve never thought of depression like that before I’ve always considered it a weakness. I need to start and change my opinion about it and just see it as a journey as theres always light at the end of the tunnel. I’m just not very good at opening up to people. I think that’s why writing it on a post makes it abit easier as I’m directly talking to someone. I will keep posting on here when I feel low.
