No one should ever feel like they are alone. This site is an extension of the Our Depression Confessions blog on Tumblr. Here everyone can interact and truly feel apart of something where they can help others.
Not just for depression,anyone suffering from mental illness or trying to recover are welcome <3
All posts are now transferred.
All posts have been reblogged to the new blog. With the exception of the recent updates posts about changing blogs. All that’s left is to tag them with the appropriate tags (ask, personal, submissions, etc) so you can find certain types and add a pop up notification to this blog to notify people of the change. Anddd the url switch. The new url for this blog should be “OurDepressionConfessionsOld.tumblr.com” and the new blog should still be “OurDepressionConfessions.tumblr.com”. Thank you for baring with me <3 We’re basically up and running!
I know you signed your ask “worthless girl”, but I don’t feel comfortable referring to you as that. So how about Andrea? It means strong/resilient. After all, to be here today you have to have some of those qualities. Andrea, I know self-hate and depression can leave you without motivation and basically someone who just wants to stay in bed all day long. But by doing nothing, you fuel you’re self-hate. Because then you feel like you’re lazy or useless or incapable. So you spend more time isolated or doing nothing, and the cycle continues until you’re crippled. I don’t want you to get to that stage. I want you to start with baby steps to help improve yourself. But to do that you’re going to have to face some of the things about yourself that you don’t like. But in moderation, I don’t want to overwhelm you. Maybe you wish you could make or create something? Start by writing something (a poem, a story, etc) in bed. Draw something while you’re in bed. Maybe you wish you got out more? Start by taking a walk outside in your backyard or in your neighborhood taking pictures of nature or drawing things you see or go to a local park. Maybe you want to see yourself in a more positive light? Start by doing some affirmations as soon as you wake up and at night before you go to bed. “I’m a human, and by definition, imperfect, and that’s okay.” “I’m a work in progress.” “I’m trying and that’s what matters.” “I’ll get through this someday, baby steps.” etc. Then turn your create something want into making crafts outside your room. Or sewing. (whatever you like). Turn your getting out more want into a day with your mom (if you get along) or a friend or an exercise day by yourself. Turn your positive light want into affirmations during the day when you start to feel down. And slowly keep building. Just as long as you keep trying. Only you can change yourself, no one else can. And I know you can do this! Stay strong <3
It’s hard for us to be a community. I mean, it’s just a blog. Sure, a lot of you follow it, reblog from it, and like the posts, and that’s great because you see other people think like you. But you don’t get to know them or talk to them. So it’s like you’re not alone, but you still are. That’s why I’ll be putting together a simple web site (from a web builder site, it’s faster and easier than coding it on my own and it’ll work well for what I need) that will have fourms, a guestbook, chat boxes, etc. So you can truly and actually communicate easily with me and everyone else! I’ll post the url when it’s done on the new blog.
Also, those asks will be answered today.
72/387 posts posted to the new blog.
There’s still 2 questions in my ask box. Don’t worry, they will still get answered <3
It’s not fair to you guys…
that because this blog is under a different account than my new main that you have to wait like forever to get your submissions and answers to your asks posted.
It bothers me.
So here’s my solution, time consuming, but it’s being done for you guys!
I will basically manually transfer this blog to a new side account under my new main. Non of your posts will be deleted. This one will stay up so your posts are conserved, but all of them will be reblogged to the new account. If all goes how I want, the url will stay the same.
The only thing you have to do on your part (if you wanna stay with me) is follow the new active blog. I’ll give you a post announcement with more updates as I go along. As of now, asks and submissions are closed.
New temp url for active blog: confessionstemp.tumblr.com
My current main: ravens-domain.tumblr.com
Please send any questions or concerns to my main <3
