What it’s like to be in love when you’re depressed

Love in Depression: Do you know what it’s like to be in love when you’re depressed? People say that we have to love ourselves first and everything else will take care of itself. But, you know what? Easier said than done, especially when you’re dealing with depression every minute and every second of your life.

Depression can greatly change the way you see the world.

Unlike grief or sadness, which you can eventually overcome if you give yourself time to process the feelings. Depression is a mood disorder that comes with a range of symptoms and negatively affects the way we think and feel about things around us. It’s not easy being in love when you’re depressed.

What it’s like to be in love when you’re depressed

Love with Depression: Only people who suffer from depression know how much negativity it brings. I didn’t know about this disease until it hit me during my college days and completely turned my world upside down.

I had lost all hope of life and never thought I could write this.

Depression has been with me for a long time. I took medication, went to therapy, sometimes I was in a good mood, other times I gave up. Thoughts of suicide have plagued me both in waking life and in my dreams. It was like going through hell and back.

Throughout this time, I have been in a relationship with a wonderful person who would not leave my side even on days when my condition made me reject him. And the good thing? He never gave up hope that one day I would overcome the illness to be at peace with him. I can’t thank my lucky stars more than I already thank you for bringing him to my side.

So what is it like to love someone with depression?

There were days when I completely abandoned him and retreated into my own shell. He could never ask anything of me because he knew how much that silence meant to me. There were many moments when I felt overwhelmed for no reason and brought tears to my eyes. He just looked me in the eyes, didn’t ask me anything, pulled me closer and took me into his hug.

Some days these intense feelings from him drove me crazy. I was hypersensitive to every little mistake on his part. I took everything he said personally and felt extremely hurt. I forgot he was human too.

And sometimes I pushed him away because I felt guilty that I couldn’t give him what he deserved. So many thoughts crowded into my mind that I was completely overwhelmed with feelings. After all, it’s not that easy to love someone with depression.

It was like we were hanging on the edge of a deep cliff, holding onto each other and not letting go. As soon as we let go, everything falls apart.

I know all of this has upset and upset him deeply, but I wonder what else made him stand by me. He never missed an opportunity to remind me how much he cared about me, how much he appreciated me, how much he loved me.

Even when life with me was like a roller coaster ride, he never complained about how miserable I was. But in the end I doubted him and his love, because actually I only doubted myself, my worth, my worth.

If unconditional acceptance doesn’t look like that, then I don’t know what it looks like. Every day with me was a problem. That’s how I felt too. But I still can’t imagine how he managed to love me so effortlessly.

All I’ve learned through the years with the true love of my life is that when you have someone who just accepts you for who you are, who has patience with you and never lets you down halfway, you will understand that mental illness is not a curse.

You will learn the importance of being yourself.

You don’t always have to be the best version of yourself, you don’t always have to be happy, you don’t always have to be successful, you don’t always have to look good, but you can still rock the world.

Having a mental illness is just a way of being. If you’re depressed and you love yourself, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Being in love when you’re depressed is different.
