You can’t recover from Depression. But you can cover it up. Once you see the world for what it is, no amount of drugs can make it full of rainbows again. The world is a horrible place, anyone who tells you it’s a place of wonder is lying to themselves and to you or truly hasn’t experienced the painful truths of what this society actually is.
You’re right; you don’t recover from depression. But you don’t cover it up. You learn to manage it, as with any mental illness. Management can include medication, therapy; a wide variety of things. What works for one person will not work for the next.
There will always be bad days. There will always be relapses. But there will also always be hope. There will always be beautiful things in the world.
That’s it. That’s all I have to say.
