Cuddle desperate

9 07 2016

Not a good day. And then I was watching some stand-up on YouTube and a comedian was talking about how she has depression and some days, she’ll just get really sad for no reason. And I thought, well, maybe that’s what I have today. I’m just sad for no reason. But it’s okay. And I don’t have to be desperate for affection. I mean, that’s not to say that craving cuddles is the worst way to deal with depression — there are much worse, unhealthier ways for sure.

Thirsty, is the word that comes to mind. I only recently learned the slang definition of it. I think it’s lame.

I think that, as someone who suffers with anxiety and depression, we are often too focused on an idealised view of happiness. Sometimes it is simply okay to have bad days and we need to accept that. Denying the truth will get us nowhere. That doesn’t mean that we can’t be happy. It’s just accepting the bad that sometimes comes with the good and vice versa.

I agree. That’s a logical way to look at it. Thanks. 🙂
