The other thing about depression is it kind of collapses time. Suddenly, you find your whole days blending together to create one endless and suffocating loop. So you find yourself trying to remember the things that made you happy. But slowly, your brain begins to erase every memory that ever brought you joy. And eventually, all you can think about is how life has always been this way. And will only continue to be this way.
The absolute worst part of depression is that even though you know you’re depressed, you’re unable to stop yourself from getting worse.
Having a brilliant idea isn’t as easy as turning on a light. But just as a single bulb can illuminate even the most depressing of rooms, the right idea can shed light on a depressing situation.
You’re doing depression right. The key is to embrace it. Once you accept that you’ve got nothing, then you’ve got nothing left to lose. The low point, that’s where freedom lives.[to Harry]
There are five stages to grief, which are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. And right now, out there, they’re all denying the fact that they’re sad, and that’s hard, and it’s making them all angry. And it is my job to try to get them all the way through to acceptance, and, if not acceptance, then just depression. If I can get them depressed, then I’ll have done my job.
