  1. These quotes really reflect how depression is. I know, I am in that boat. I try to keep myself busy (to the point of exhaustion) so that I can keep all those negative thoughts away. Thanks for collating these quotes. My favorite is the one from Keanu Reeves.

  2. I like #4: Once you choose hope, everything is possible. I choose to feel happy thoughts (even though it’s hard this period) and I know it’s a privilege that I can choose to feel happy feelings.

  3. Simplicity, joy and serenity in life is in my opinion in simple things. In the elasticity in which we face an unexpected situation, the mood in the face of a difficulty and how we do not mess up the mind with thoughts, doubts or questions. Great inspirations with this quotes!

  22. The most true comment here is the one about when people don’t understand depression they become judgmental towards those that experience it. We need to be empathetic toward everyone we meet because we never know what they are really going through.
