    I did too! Time and learning to cope. To get out of the woods you need to explore the woods! You also need to really go outside your comfort zone which I guess is similar to what I said above.

    This is great! I'm glad to hear. For me getting out of it was relatively easy but I struggled staying out of it for a long time and kept falling back in but once time went by it just went, my brain readjusted, suddenly I actually wanted things from life and realised it doesn't have to be the same. It's a great thing to experience, it gives so much light, something I could only wish for others to experience

    This is for depressed people:
    Here's what I did: listen to Lana Del Rey - Video Games or Coldplay - The Scientist and whilst listening, only care about yourself, care about your feelings, like you did when you were younger, don't fake anything, you don't have to smile all the time

    Try to get back to your true feelings, not depression feeling sorry for yourself feelings

    Some patience is needed

    Lol, no offence but if music and some happy thoughts 'cured' your 'depression', you were never depressed to begin with, you probably just felt a little down.

    What is depression then? Isn't it feeling sorry for yourself, having no motivation to do anything, it's almost having no feeling, it's not feeling ****, its emptiness, no purpose of life, and I've been like this since Nov 2015, I've listened to music so much in that time and it never affected me, but I snapped out of it, I was depressed

    Ok, and all that miraculously disappeared after listening to Video Games by Lana del Rey and one Coldplay song, oh and some positive thoughts. Have you considered writing to Pope Francis? He might actually recognize Lana del Ray's miracle, you never know.

    I'm with Ciel on this. Most of my depression is situational, which has meant removing myself from said situation. Of course, it doesn't then magically go. It does take some time to go.

    When you say that you had depression, it means that you had clinical (or major) depression.

    http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/depress...roduction.aspx

    It affected my family member once (I won't say which one) and their bout of depression lasted a week. They didn't want to speak, or comunicate. They seemed dead inside. They looked depressed however we couldn't find a way to cheer them up.

    They eventually recovered from that bout of depression but I don't know if it was because of something (such as music), medication or whether it just happened by itself.

    I'm sorry but depression isn't something you can just 'snap out of'

    I'm not sure exactly how depression can be defined, it can be a range of possible things from feeling a little sad to major clinical depression. I myself have never been diagnosed with depression, but my parents and friends believe it possible. I've always seen depression as being separate from the world around you: not taking anything in, not wanting to do anything, having no motivation and always feeling negative about everything. There's much more to it than that, but as has already been said, proper clinical depression is generally something that takes months, if not years to heal, and is extremely hard to get rid of.

    Depression is more about extremely low energy than sadness, sadness is just a symptom of that. However, I do think your advice is still a good coping mechanism for depression if done regularly. It's very important to rekindle self-pity when you're depressed.

    You managed to snap out of depression eh? My asthma was the result of me not breathing properly so I just snapped out of it and decided to breathe properly. Amazing cure.

    Depression is one of the easiest things (along with anxiety) to get diagnosed with. If you haven't been diagnosed there's a very good chance you never had it
