It's Never Bad Enough To Warrant Listening To Me Anyway...Probably the worst thing about having mild to moderate depression is that it invariably happens that whenever you're in one of your more dark places, you have to bite your tongue to your friends/family because there always seems to be someone worse off at that moment. So you keep quiet and refuse to reach out and vent because they OBVIOUSLY have it worse than you right now and you wouldn't want to bring hem down further by trying to use them as support. So instead, you smile and nod and listen to whatever is troubling them this time, offering the best advice and support you can all the while you yourself are dying and screaming inside. But you're a good person, so you would never expect quid pro quo from them, turning around and expecting them to listen to YOU. Heavens, that would just be rude. So another opportunity missed again.
