I Created This Infographic About Depression To Show You’re Not Alone

In times when life gets harder it’s not always easy to describe every single person what’s happening to you right now. Maybe you can’t talk about it or you don’t want to. So this comic is made for the people who want to understand what is happening to depressed humans and for the people who need a little support. I want them to know that recovery is possible.

Maybe you find yourself in this comic or maybe you find a person you know. You are not alone in this. Yes, I know it is hard and exhausting and maybe right now the world is grey in grey and nothing makes sense anymore. But you can fight it. You can find your own way of getting better and leading a happy life again.

Forget what the media or society is telling you about what you have to be or have to do. Don’t let this pressure bring you down. You don’t have to earn millions. You don’t have to be a top model. You don’t have to take over your parents business. You don’t have to be nice to everyone, even if they are horrible to you. You don’t have to fit in a shape that anyone wants you to. This is not important. The only really important thing is that you find your own way to get along with things that life may bring and that your heart is filled with joy again.

That right here is the piece of advice. Depression is a disease not a weakness. People wouldn't judge someone for having cancer, yet they judge people with depression. Thank you for sharing this Infographics, hopefully they will motivate people with depression to do something about it.

Thank you Abbey :) That's what I am hoping too! Just because they don't see it at first sight, many people think that depression or other mental illnesses aren't that bad. This is so wrong.

Excellent, thank you so much. I often think it is much easier for non-depressed people to understand cartoons/infographics than to read. It is more succinct, and somehow more REAL when you see it depicted this way. I suffer from severe depressions from time to time and your infographic depicts EXACTLY how I feel during those times.

OK. Not my smartest move to read this as the first thing in morning class. But really, this is great and I think more people should see these kind of posts. Too little people understand the struggles. Keep being awesome! :)
