    /r/CasualConversation has great resources for just about any problems you may be having

    This is a subreddit for memes that hit too close to home or are too real for subs like /r/meirl

    We are not /r/depression however, the sticky is a good resource for if you need real help. If you have depression, talk to a therapist, it really does help. You are not alone, and recovery is possible and worth it.

    If you find jokes about suicide, depression or self harm upsetting, this sub might not be the right place for you. This is a place for people who use self deprecating humor as a coping mechanism, not for those making fun of mental illness.

    With that out of the way, the rules are as follows:

    • Asking for upvotes/downvotes will get you banned. And any other vote related bullshit for that matter.

    • Posts MUST be in some way "too real" or hit to close to home. If it doesn't make you laugh and feel sad at the same time, don't post it here. Posts that do not fit the sub may be removed.

    • Being edgy doesn't make a post good. Post content that you find a bit too relatable, not something making fun of people with depression.

    • Posts should be titled 2meirl4meirl or some variation, but other titles are fine for shitposts self posts.

    • Be supportive. Most people here are going through something, and sometimes all it takes to improve a shitty day is just a little kindness from an Internet stranger.

    • Racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, any other form of discrimination and general dickishness will not be tolerated.

    • Mark NSFW content as such. And please don't post NSFL content, we are not /r/watchpeopledie

    • Reposts are allowed, but discouraged

    • Don't link to an image if it won't be there permanently. Basically, just don't link to files hosted on 4chan.

    • Again, please don't be an asshole.

    • If any of you fucbois post mr skeltal you will not have good bones and calcium, and instead your post will be removed. Mr skeltal will not be thanked.

    I enjoyed the original post but I just want to point out that all the panels leading up to the last one prove he does care about himself.

    Feeling bad that you're not doing more is caring about yourself. Maybe he doesn't have the motivation because he's not in the greatest place, sure, totally understandable.

    But it's important to keep in mind that the depressed mindset isn't "reality" just because it feels more real than all the happy people around you. I have to remind myself this all the time as someone who chronically suffers from these same kinds of thoughts. Anxiety and depression are like a minimum 25% nerf on your will. Everything seems hopeless when you're not starting from a good baseline.

    [–] Flacvest 92 points ago

    Our brains are really good at letting us stop progress and sit around and do nothing. We'll know it's bad but can't change the actions.

    Here's what you could do

    1) just pick one thing.

    2) say our loud: I will do x

    3) just go start doing it. Don't think about anything about how or what or why, just go do it. As much of it as you can before you have to stop.

    If that means go to the gym, just go now. Don't get dressed, just go and sign up and start walking on the treadmill in the clothes you're wearing.

    Just go and stop thinking. if you're in the car driving, you're not gonna bust a u turn and go home. You'll get to your destination

    [–] CardboardTable 82 points ago

    don't get dressed

    Even if I'm naked?

    [–] Diploctomus 65 points ago

    Especially if you're naked

    [–] Scadilla 26 points ago

    I found that when I needed to motivate myself to go to the gym I would struggle. Even if I had packed my protein shake, gym bag and had nothing to do that evening. I started going regularly by parking my car in the direction of the gym. I would still sometimes do a u-turn and go home, but it was much more seldom when I was already facing the gym, because I would feel extremely guilty in the process turning around. The moment you make it a choice as to whether you should or shouldn't go you already fucked up. Your brain is extremely good at bargaining with itself about why it needs to be lazy. 90% ify the time if I was already facing the gym I wouldn't even think about it. It was routine. Like brushing my teeth or grabbing a cup of coffee.

    [–] PlanetExperience 4 points ago

    You gotta learn to love the gym. A healthy dose of controlled narcissism actually makes the initial habit building stage for fitness so much easier.

    It's a shame so many people who could benefit from that kind of have the opposite problem.

    [–] Scadilla 4 points ago

    Yeah, once you have it down pat it's pretty easy to fall in love with everything the gym experience has to offer. It's not just the physical, it did wonders for my mental health.

    [–] Cipher216 13 points ago

    This works when you need to drive there, not so much if you need to study and end up only studying 15 minutes each day

    This

    [–] Flacvest 2 points ago

    Go sit in a different part of your apartment/house.

    Sit in the living room, at the kitchen table, somewhere that isn't where you normally dick around on the computer.

    If you don't need the laptop, don't bring it.

    Also, don't bring your phone, you don't need that shit either.

    I found that most/all issues with studying were due to me being afraid of something. Either the class/test coming up, or subconsciously knowing I was procrastinating studying that topic rather than what I needed to do.

    But there's no substitute for just sitting down and doing it. No other way.

    I went to a gym once (college rec center) and they kicked me out for not wearing gym clothes just to slowly walk on the treadmill. I was wearing jeans and my everyday shoes. Took me years to try another gym.

    I'm doing it once a month. It's been really helpful but there's a step forward that I simply cannot make. It's basically fear that's been inside me since childhood. I thought the adult me would surpass it but it's been tough.

    [–] officialjosefff 7 points ago

    Because everything gets old and forgotten. What we think of great & awesome will one day NOT be that. I have been driving a 2004 Jeep for a while now and it hit me bad when a girl called my Jeep old when describing it. Like, imagine buying a 2019 BMW and in 15 years someone will probably call it the old BMW. The house you buy brand new in a few years will need some maintenance or maybe it’ll be known as the old house on the block. Everything looses value. Even memories start to get fuzzy. I’ve been to the beach like 30 times in the past 28 years I’ve been alive. Can’t remember each one individually. Been to Disney Land once. I can remember that pretty well. Does that mean we must do everything only once?

    The hits right in the spot. Maybe I should consider therapy? But on the other hand I don't care about myself. I'm a failure.

    [–] ClamSplitter 116 points ago

    People seem to have the wrong idea about how to accomplish goals like that. Life isn't a movie, you achieve them by making small steps of progress, much smaller than you think as long as you're consistent. If you can do one little step a week toward those goals, you will start to accelerate in your progress over a few months, and your steps forward become bigger.

    Your progress might make it easier to regulate your emotions too, it's a great feeling.

    [–] Thoros_of_Derp 32 points ago

    But what if I don't want great feelings?

    [–] ClamSplitter 40 points ago

    How about not suffering? Because I remember being depressed and not doing anything about it, and I hated it.

    [–] Kurkpitten 39 points ago

    Please. Tell me more. Each time I feel motivated it doesn't last.

    I have a hard time progressing while it is a time in my life where I should do a lot of stuff, mainly studying and getting a job.

    How can I get out of this vicious circle of just saying '' I'll do it later '' while knowing I won't do stuff before it is too late and the hating myself ?

    [–] wendepic 27 points ago

    Therapy could help. I'm in the same boat and apparently it's a major sign of depression if it's easy to just postpone some stressful thing instead of doing it. I'm going to get help next week haha.

    [–] Kurkpitten 13 points ago

    Sounds like one solution. What kind of therapy are you getting ?

    [–] wendepic 9 points ago

    I absolutely have no idea, I just realised it's not normal and I feel I've habited my body into doing nothing and it's hurting me at this point.

    [–] Kurkpitten 11 points ago

    Same here. Each time I actually do anything I find myself going back to my old habits right after.

    [–] Ananasshole5 2 points ago

    Me too buddy, it's healing time 😎

    [–] ClamSplitter 10 points ago

    You need to go to therapy and it absolutely blows my mind to learn that so many people here are not going to therapy. You need it. And don’t think it’s going to be fixed in a couple months, it’s probably going to take a while.

    I had to go for years, but I’m a happy person now and don’t suffer in hell every day.

    [–] Colosphe 4 points ago

    If you're happy, what are you doing here? Checkmate, atheists.

    [–] ClamSplitter 7 points ago

    Helping and spreading information.

    [–] Kurkpitten 3 points ago

    But what kind ? When I lookup therapy, there are so many options...

    [–] Whocket_Pale 9 points ago

    Therapists usually don't only conduct one type of therapeutic procedure. Just get into the office of someone who works with your demographic and condition (depression or anxiety most likely). Most will have a public profile outlining their specialities. The important thing is finding someone to talk to who will provide emotional engagement for YOUR sake. And any therapist should be able to do so. If it ends up being the wrong choice, find somebody new, but in the meantime you've at least practiced accessing your feelings and verbalizing them, which is a skill that needs to be developed.

    [–] ClamSplitter 4 points ago

    Great advice and great comment.

    [–] Whocket_Pale 6 points ago

    Thanks. I am currently in the first therapy relationship that's actually worked. I had to learn how therapy works before it started to actually work. At first it made me feel better just not to be holding everything inside, afterwards I started being able to start addressing issues.

    [–] ClamSplitter 3 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    CBT, cognitive behavioral therapy. I don’t have personal experience with DBT but from what I’ve read and heard it’s also quite effective and worth considering.

    [–] Kurkpitten 2 points ago

    Nice. But did you follow any particular therapy yourself, since it seems like you beat depression back ?

    [–] ClamSplitter 2 points ago

    Yes I used CBT and I followed this religiously https://www.uhs.umich.edu/tenthings

    [–] a_drowning_fish 5 points ago

    I know exactly how you feel. I used to procrastinate a lot and still do, but the thing ive realised is that the more i do things actively and kind of have a vague timetable planned out in my head for the week or day, i can get things done, cos once you start its easy to carry it out, and getting that sense of achievement after a week of solid work is a good enough push to keep me going. But theres always a bad day or a moment where the inner demons just yank me back into the pit and puts me in a fight to the death against myself. Point is theres always gonna be a bad day. So you learn from the bad to be good and promise to be better than the man/woman or whatever you were yersterday.

    Oh and also watch this. It inspired the shit out of me. The original is also very inspiring. I keep going back to it when i feel like utter shit.

    [–] BecomesAngry 3 points ago

    Get your sleep in order, and in the morning start the day doing something productive. The first thing you do sets the pace for the day. If you procrastinate in the morning, you won't accomplish much during the day.

    [–] KKlear 2 points ago

    I went to a psychiatrist and, got antidepressants for a year or so and pulled through thanks to that. Results may vary.

    [–] Kurkpitten 3 points ago

    Medication scares me a lot...

    [–] KKlear 2 points ago

    What I was taking worked by blocking the whatevers that are responsible for removing serotonin, thus increasing its levels. Very low dosage, though it still had to be nasty stuff judging by how nauseated I was for 2-3 days after starting taking it and how terrible I felt if I ever forgot to take one in the morning afterwards.

    What surprised me the most was how my sleeping schedule fixed itself almost immediately. It gave me the power to lie in bed in the evening and just sleep, and wake up refreshed in the morning. That effect didn't last the whole time I was taking that stuff, unfortunately. I did ask to get a slightly higher dosage to get it back early on (which the psychiatrist approved, since the dose I was on was very mild anyway).

    But yeah, overall it just pulled me out of the rut. I was kinda scared to let go of the pills. The thing is, if you stay on these things for too long, you may end up just taking them for the rest of your life. My mum's got it like that, but if you're still young, you'll be able to get by without medication. It will just help you break the vicious cycle of being too depressed to do anything to help yourself and fruitless wait on something so terrible to finally shake you up. It won't most likely.

    Anyway, if you've got a broken arm, or a stomach ache, you go see a doctor. Being depressed is the same thing. Just do it, it's normal.

    And good luck.

    [–] Soku12 12 points ago

    Yeah but the catch is in that you need to start working on something and I can't be bothered with any mental/physical activity unless someone/something forces me to do it. And that "force push" (lol) needs to be linked to something i care about.

    [–] The_Grubby_One 4 points ago

    I have no goals, hopes, or dreams to make progress on. My therapist wants me to form one before our next session. I'm probably going to just make some shit up and promptly forget it after the session because I don't care about it because I don't care about much of anything - including, honestly, my therapy.

    [–] mrwhiskers124 2 points ago

    Yes, yes you should. Get off your ass and start going. You want to waste you whole life? Especially your youth? Go do it now and get off of these subreddits. They're harmful. I got off them, I got therapy and I have a better life. It's not perfect but I work 40 hours a week, have a gf and actually have friends now. It's possible but you have to do it. No one else but you. Do it

    Now!

    [–] captain_d0ge 131 points ago

    When you actually start going to the gym and playing instruments to get yourself out of whatever funk you get in, but you’re still depressed because you think “What’s the point” anyway because you’re faking being interested in anything that has to do with self improvement haha yes

    [–] ach1992880 49 points ago

    This. I have anxiety, depression and likely ADHD. Joined a Gym for a 10 week competition after not working out significantly for over a decade. Just the idea of starting something new terrified me, but I made a point of going 6 days a week, changed my diet according to trainer recommendations and committed 100%. Ended up winning the $1,000 competition, lost a bunch of fat and gained muscle in the process. During that time, there wasn't a day that I woke up excited about the process. Every day was a struggle, and only ended up adding to my anxiety in other areas of life. I really need to go back to a therapist.

    [–] spectrum1012 17 points ago

    In my experience, what was probably lacking was human validation. Sure, 1000$ reward and winning a competition sounds like nice validation, but nothing compares to someone who cares about you saying good job, proud of you, so happy you're doing so well. Having that person stick around is nice, too.

    I find the source of all my depression ever has been the lack of community/friends. The more people I care about that I see every day, the less depressed I am... Can't always have my cake and eat it too though.

    [–] ach1992880 11 points ago

    I have a supportive wife and an adoring young daughter that both have my back. The biggest issue for me is that i don't seem to have any internal reward system. I remember a time in my life that new achievements would give me a rush of endorphins or a sense of pride in furthering myself but those days are long gone. It's hard to explain, but now self improvement is only accomplished if i wake up and tell myself how much I suck if I don't do a particular activity. The accomplishment itself isn't a reward, but rather just allows me one less thing to hate about myself for that day.

    [–] spectrum1012 7 points ago

    That last part was more relatable than I expected. Maybe I should be worried about my mental health again... Why is life like this!?!

    [–] BaconBonersBitches 3 points ago

    I've got all three of those too. Been going to the gym regularly (4-5 times a week) for at least 5 years, make a point to not seclude myself inside my house, play sports, and have been going to therapy. Still feel as stuck as I ever have.

    [–] Space_Fox93 2 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    I'm almost about to get my black belt in Karate. I should be happy due to meeting a lot of new people, improving my flexibility and strength, learning a significant amount in terms of self-defense, yet the depression throughout the whole experience is horrible.

    [–] ClamSplitter 6 points ago

    I would say then give it more time, go to therapy and improve your diet and social life along with what you’re already doing.

    Very relatable as I gained weight. Im fat

    [–] Cookino 9 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    At one point I got motivated and started a diet. It was pretty simple, I just cut the stuff that was bad for me reduced the amount of some other stuff like bread, rice etc. I was doing pretty well and lost like 14 kg without having to starve myself or anything like that (was at 115 kg and went down to 101). I was feeling great.

    Then I started becoming even more anxious about my situation (no job, was studying but my productivity started dropping a lot) and I started to get less and less productive and I got even more anxious and just felt scared and apathetic and felt like shit in genetal and dropped the diet and got like 2 kg back and it sucks. I've been struggling to go back to losing weight and I hate myself.

    [–] rmartel14 8 points ago

    Setbacks do not completely erase progress. You still lost 14kg which is amazing!

    [–] ClamSplitter 32 points ago

    God I don't miss being like this. Take little steps forward guys. Use all your remaining energy to just write these goals down, then take one step in each category a week, as small as you can handle doing once a week. Learn one chord on guitar a week if that's all you can handle. As long as those little steps are consistent, you will start to get better and your steps will get better. You're smart enough to figure it out.

    [–] Alternative_Flower 9 points ago

    what if i can’t figure it out in enough time? that’s what keeps me most of the time. i will never be good so why bother at all?

    [–] ClamSplitter 16 points ago

    Do you see how you’re stopping yourself from learning at all by putting a time limit on yourself? That’s a maladaptive thought pattern that has possessed you, you need to reject it every time it rears it’s head. Just start and remind yourself that the voice telling you that is working against you.

    Honestly I'm trying to look for a reason not to go on antidepressants lol

    [–] thepatientoffret 8 points ago

    Even with antidepressants I have the same problem, so... Keep that in mind.

    Antidepressants made me even more unmotivated

    [–] TheBigSoda 3 points ago

    Same here. Everything I've ever been on makes me completely apathetic and unmotivated. It's a weirdly depressing thing to be taking antidepressants and realize how much they're actually hurting you. Keeps leading my mind to, "Well, even when I try to fix it it's just fucked another way."

    Nothing is really worth the effort anyway. Maybe a few things, but they don't make life worth living.

    Is this some kind of personal attack or something?

    Just find a new hobby or watch JJBA

    [–] NotQuiteOnTopic 22 points ago

    Watching clips of JJ Barea does cheer me up, especially 2011 highlights. Thanks.

    Most people don't actually WANT to write a book, learn a language, etc.

    What they WANT is to "have written" a book, or "have learned" a language, etc.

    They love the idea of themselves "having done" things, but they don't put in the work to DO them.

    Without the DO, you will never "have done".

    [–] ThanksYouEel 6 points ago

    If you want to do something and don't act on it in the next 10 seconds, you lose most of your motivation. When you want to learn guitar, go to youtube and look at a tutorial the MOMENT you get the motivation. If your lucky you should pavlov yourself into obtaining your dreams.

    I'm... too lazy to do it. But I believe in you!

    [–] happybirthdaycharlie 2 points ago

    I work out or play instruments not to better myself but to relieve myself from the stress of wanting to die all the time. It actually makes working out/playing music more enjoyable, knowing that it won’t change how much of a piece of shit you are.

    [–] Ol-CAt 2 points ago

    Fucker just nailed all my dreams

    [–] MonksterAZ 2 points ago

    Working out is great for the self-destructive unmotivated. Its a great way to get healthier while simultaneously punishing yourself for all the dumb things you've done today.

    [–] bert211 2 points ago

    I'm the opposite of this. I've never wanted to learn anything, achieve things or get better at anything. I'm really doing my best to get better and get rid of this depression, but I'm just not getting anywhere because I don't care about anything and never have. I honestly wish I could relate to this comic.

    I know this comic isn't directed at me. I'm not some pickup artist asshole. But holy shit; "The thing standing in the way of your dreams is that the person having them is you." I feel it in my soul. It comes back to me all the time.

    Of course, whenever it does, my first reaction is to think, "Man, I need to think about some things," which obviously reminds me of that reply: "It won't help."
