I too battle with depression and have lost a loved one to suicide my brother, so I can relate to your feelings, Take care stella

That's really great Starly. You know that you don't want to die. Knowing that you want peace and joy is a start. What are you going to do to have peace and joy? <br />
<br />
I feel the same way. It's very difficult. Keep sharing your negative emotions to release it out of you. Talking about it is like a vacuum sucking your depression out of you. <br />
<br />
Then, reward yourself afterwards for doing a good job to keep that positive emotion going. Whatever you feel are rewards for yourself that will give you peace and joy. Things you really love. For example, ice cream, watching a movie, taking walks in the park, being there for a friend, etc.
