Example of two of my thoughts: human interactions are depressing and heavy to witness; the pettiness of it. Certain people in my life and intolerable to even think about.

So random

It's weird.

I guess somehow we project our fears and insecurities externally much more while having DP. We are at a vulnerable state but we don't have to think we are vulnerable. The more we pity ourselves and the more we victimize ourselves, the worse it will get or the longer it will linger.

It seems a normal complication while being DP. I too get bouts of depression for the simplest things. This is definitely like riding a bike all over again, but we can learn, and only become stronger.

Maybe because you have been through hell yourself that now you are looking at life in a different way...i.e. You now wonder why people squabble and fight and are obsessed with money and power etc....Simply because you now realise that there is so much more to life (The simple things) and that its short and more importantly that your health is your wealth....

DP did exactly the same to me....I am no longer an optimist nor a pessimist....I am a realist and I see the world for what it really is....A nasty place with alot of nasty people....But the good news is I dont have to be one of them....I have realised that whilst the world is nasty with lots of nasty people it is also still full of beauty and beautiful people...So what I do now is stick with the good people and enjoy the beautiful side to the world...

Toxic people places and things no longer have a place in my life.....It was all that stuff that gave me DP in the first place...

This is not to say Im not there for people when they really need me...But I will only help people with genuine needs nowadays...The 3 strikes and your out rule applies...Fuck me over once and I will forgive you, Do it twice and you will be warned, A third time and your history....

Its all about motives....When someones motives are in the wrong place they are to be avoided like the plague....But if someone is in genuine need, Help them!!!...

Its actually a positive I have gotten from my years of DP......I am wiser and much more greatfull for what I have..And I dont sit there bitching about what I havent got...My mental health is priceless to me...And I dont let any person, place or thing take it away nowadays....

Why do things appear darker, when you wear sunglasses? Depression is a biological condition that influences your emotional perceptions. Emotional response to stimuli is changed by depression. Anhedonia, numbness, flat effect, are some terms to describe this change.

Why are we here? Why do I exist? And also the thought that I'm alive and that one day this reality will be stripped away from me. Ironically, it is this reality right now that seems unreal and yet I fear of letting it go eventually one day as well.

None of these thoughts ever perturbed my mind when I didn't have DP! I could easily think about any existential thing and not be faced by it.

I've always been a deep thinker though, and I always looked at the inherent things of anything..what is here and why it is here and such.

Now, while being DP, I do best to silence those thoughts. Because thinking about while glancing out my window and seeing the outside world, makes me nervous and depressed.

But we can better. I already have. I had some severe anxiety issues not o long ago and I have gotten better.
