I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality
and if you’ve had depression since early childhood you don’t even know if you have your own personality
you didn’t have time to be a person before depression
and it’s scary having no idea who you are
Yes. I have never seen this in words. But that is what is so difficult about trying to take your life back from depression.
All I have known is depression, and I have no idea how to not be that person.
For the longest time I didn’t even know what it was like to actually like something and not just know about it to be able to get on with people. Still don’t some days.
