What is depression? Not in theory, not some idea that you were taught... how do you feel right now? What's going on with you right now. Well, there's a set of feelings, you may feel pressure in your chest, a feeling in your stomach...so what you have in this moment is a feeling or a set of feelings.

A set of feelings, alright. When I’m depressed, I wouldn’t even know where to start to describe what I feel.

That’s true. You won’t be thinking straight when you’re depressed.

This is good to know, for helping others who are depressed. Help them break down what they feel one by one so that it isn’t too overwhelming.

When we feel depressed, we tend to have the phrasing of the terminology of ‘I am depressed’ It's not that you are depressed, you are experiencing a set of feelings. that's what's going on.

Yes, we often blame ourselves and describe ourselves in the worst possible way.

I am not depressed. I am Lumko. I say that over and over to myself when I start to feel down.

True, we are experiencing a million things when we are depressed. Our minds are all over the place, we are overwhelmed. But yeah, they are just feelings… and thoughts.

You may think you are always depressed but there are moments when you're not... before you had it for one, you are you before you were depressed. It may seem like a different you but something was the same. now, you are still you.

When you are probably surrounded by people you love, you are not depressed.

Yeah, that is true. Even if you are surrounded by things you love, food you love, it has the same effect for me.
