    I am now

    I don't know why, but I want to switch off rom everyone, not explain myself to anybody, just be by myself. I miss home but am depressed at the thought of going home. I feel lonely and yet I know I have friends. I think my relationship sucks and yet I know I have it good.

    Yeah, wish I was back to being cheerful again but I think I'm enjoying this too much

    And here I was trying to avoid allowing myself to stew in my own juices. No wonder I'm getting these feelings of burn out. The problem is I just end up stewing in a loneliness that I can't cure unless I stop the actions brought about by feeling lonely. Fucked if I do, fucked if I don't?

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Yes, especially during these times.

    I switch off everyone too. I don't care about anyone, or anything. I become bitchy and morose. There is always a reason and I can usually peg it, but I do nothing about it. Though I do find when I talk about it I feel loads better, but it doesn't go away. It comes and goes.

    There's always a reason to be depressed! Find it, dwell on it.

    Depression coincides with thinking. When we are ruminating, we are not happy. It is very difficult to engage in "happy" thinking since happiness is a very consciousness-less, active feeling. You don't ruminate over being happy. You just feel it.

    So how do you become happy? Re-engage in relationship with the world, every time your thoughts turn back to yourself blow them back out to encompass the beauty of life. Realize the essential, liberating meaninglessness of all things. Live entirely in the moment and let go of any regrets of the past or fears for the future. They are illusions.

    There is perhaps a difference between lesser melancholia and (greater) depression? If the emotional spectrum of human beings was represented by a deep well, depression would be rock bottom and melancholia would be the state of dangling halfway down, aiming for a better perspective?

    This is very close to what I've known for years, but I know more than I'm able to express with clarity. Well done. A vague, related quote from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, which you may have seen me quote before: "The past cannot remember the past. The future can't generate the future. The cutting edge of this instant, right here and now, is always nothing less than the totality of everything there is."
