    A part of me may wish I had suffered a tragic event so as to justify my depression in the present (but I realize suffering tragedies only makes the psyche worse-off). I mean, sometimes I feel I have no reason to complain, especially compared to others. I could say my friends and family have suffered more than me (they've had parents with cancer, parents probably dying earlier than they should have, divorced parents, victims of extensive bullying, etcetera)… meanwhile, I'm just a whiny, undisciplined child who is afraid of growing up and dying. I have a pretty good life, but cannot see the point of it. Should I make-believe a meaning and assign it to my life? And will that be only a charade? Ah, the luxury of having an existential crisis in the 21st century. Oh welp. At the very least I'm not fighting for my life in the wilderness, and can afford the privilege to rant here. I guess I'll hope that the story I'm writing will give me the answers I seek. xD

    Maybe I'm stupid, but I have a hard time following your videos. There's so many quotes that I get lost trying to understand them as you keep talking. Then I also get lost thinking about the things you have to say. It kind of feels like a dense essay or paper in a video format. I think it would be better to read what you're saying rather than listen to it. I understand there's a pause button, but it would be way easier in paper.
    Nvm, just looked in your description and saw the transcript. But does anyone else feel this way about the videos, like you have a hard time following by just listening?

    I’ve always wanted to be a professional musician. My band fell apart last year and so I have been focused on my solo music, laying down all the parts myself. But the “Caesar or nothing” complex has hit me really hard. I’ve tried to keep in touch with Spirituality and Psychology to keep myself sane. This Covid lockdown has only amplified the isolation.

    Just wanted to share my solo music. It’s not perfect but it is all that I have right now. A new album is in the works.

    O. Seraphim: Depression occurs due to unsatisfied pride or voluptuousness (mental or physical). During depression, a feeling of grief cannot be felt, as this will make it even more intensified. At the time of depression, you need to pay attention to the fact that it is depression that is correctly overcome. To do this, you need to warm up a sense of humility with sorrow, thanksgiving of God for sorrow, and bearing it as deserved for sins.

    And when depression recedes, and a favorable state sets in, then it is already possible to continue the struggle with other passions that a person sees in himself, lamenting about them.

    About depression and how to get out of it, see the materials here.

    I was depressed my whole life but I didn't know that. I suffered from depression since I was an infant. In the past two years I took massive action to fix myself and become the greatest version I could be. I rarely have a temporary episode of depression and I'm convinced that in the near future I'll be completely free of depression. If you really wish to be happy, you have to do what's necessary to achieve it.

    You people are Missing the point. Instead of being great, think about being decent. After that, strive for being better. Then, better, and só on. Its all about steps.

    Depression is caused by external and internal perfectionism , just my opinion , the feeling that something is defective without a perceived solution

    The greatest depression comes to one not seeking fame, fortune, power, or influence; but simply to be respected as a human being, but is not respected as such.

    I'm like an empty shell,depleted of energy,i got no motivation to do anything,everything seems pointless.
    I don't understand why people go to work everyday and struggle to make a living,i don't understand why people accumulate material resources,in the end,when you are in that casket it won't matter what you've done,no matter how rich you are,you will die.
