depressief en alleen
ek is moeg daarvoor om heeltyd depressief te wees. Ek is 27 en veronderstel om saam met ander jong mense te partytjie....en om die lewe te geniet. ek het myself onttrek van alles en almal. Ek is nie lus vir mense nie... wil niemand sien nie...partykeer is ek ook nie eens lus vir myself nie.... ek stoot mense af deurdat ek altyd negatief is. ek het niemand om mee te praat nie... even God het van my vergeet...Ek probeer baie hard om myself besig te ek alleen is raak ek baie negatief...het al baie gewonder of ek nie maar 'n einde aan alles moet maak nie...

is daar dalk iemand wat kan help of wat in die selfde bootjie as ek is?

Dear alleen,
Let's see what our other good readers can say. It sounds as if you are depessed, which can truly be helped with therapy ; either psychological ( talking ) therapy of the COgnitive-Behavioral sort ; and/or with medication. Do consider taking advantage of these ways to feel better.
As for God, well, I have often noticed that when someone becomes deeply depressed, they feel like they have been somehow disconected from the comforts of their faith. But don't fel too alone because of this. Its actually like someone has cut the wire connecting your Tv set with the Satellite dish --- DSTV is still broadcasting, but you're temporarily not receiving the programmes. Normal service WILL be resumed as the depression lifts.
