Depressed Love 

It breaks my heart that I cannot make you feel better…that I cannot take away the pain, hurt, and anger.

The roller-coaster of emotions has embedded our hearts, for I have adopted your pain. 

When I speak, I feel like my words are wrong… sometimes it feels like my support does not help, instead it hurts.

You want to stay in; I want to go out.

You want to be alone; I want to be around friends and family. 

You don’t want to talk about it; I want to give advice and help.

I am constantly questioning my actions, to not upset you. It can be exhausting, but I do it because I love you.

I want you to see your worth, and know that you mean the world to me.

I have been by your side and on your team from the beginning, and I don’t want that to change, but before we break one-another down, we need a change, or we will never be able to build each other back up.

Your words hurt sometimes, and even though I know you do not mean it, I can’t help but to feel like a target and take it personally.

Not knowing what to say or what to do is an understatement, because sometimes, I have completely given up on trying… but, I always come back because I know you can get through this….

Forgive me for giving up in those moments….

  1. I think that this is what I didnt do. I didnt ask enough of what is needed…instead I gave too much advice. Thank you for taking the time to read. Depression and Anxiety are difficult and you are so amazing for sharing help with others. God bless you and your journey!

    1. I’m glad I could provide some insight. Let me add that even though they couldn’t say or do anything to help me out of my depression, just knowing they were in my life and loved me was enough to keep me going on.

  2. That’s very beautiful. I have suffered with bouts of depression, general anxiety and panic attacks for over 15 years now. I see the pain on my loved ones faces when they want to help. I know the feeling of wanting to help but not being able to. I think you described it perfectly. Best advice would be to just be what they need at that time and let them know you’re there for them if/when they need you.
