Do you hate your life so much?. Have you been thinking about giving up quite a lot lately and don’t want to deal with responsibilities any more..

Give yourself a second chance!
Depression is serious – debilitating, often dangerous, and it’s got an enormous stigma. It leaves people to fend for themselves. It doesn’t have any medication but take these advice that will help you cope and bring a lot of relief to your life:
Take a time-out. Listen to your favourite music, meditate or get a massage. Stepping back from the problem helps clear your head.
Enlist the help of a professional. See your doctor. You need to talk about it, and there are people paid to listen and help you find your way to the light at the end of the tunnel.
Eat well-balanced meals. Do not skip any meals. Eat nutritionally sound, regular small meals. If you’re having trouble eating, try to focus on what you’d like to eat.
Learn how to meditate. Start by focusing on your breathing. Not sleep, not thoughts. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Meditation is focusing on being present in your body, not careening around in your brain. It may not be as good as sleep but it will give you some rest and recharge you.
Don’t drink too much alcohol
For some people, alcohol can become a problem. You may drink more than usual as a way of coping with or hiding your emotions, or just to fill time. But alcohol won’t help you solve your problems and could also make you feel more depressed.
Get enough sleep. When stressed, your body needs additional sleep and rest and exercise daily to help you feel good and maintain your health.
Do your best. Instead of aiming for perfection, which isn’t possible, be proud of however close you get. Also, accept that you cannot control everything. Put your stress in perspective: Is it really as bad as you think?
Talk to someone. If you are well and truly losing this battle, reach out to someone. Tell friends and family you’re feeling overwhelmed, and let them know how they can help you. Limit your time with people who drain you.
Maintain a positive attitude. Make an effort to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Welcome humor, a good laugh goes a long way.
Get involved. Volunteer or find another way to be active in your community, which creates a support network and gives you a break from everyday stress.
Cry. Better out than in. Sometimes it’s not convenient or career-enhancing to cry, so find a private place as best you can and let the tears go.
Depression will lie to you. Depression will try to tell you what others are thinking. That you are unloved and unworthy, that others think little of you or don’t care – or even wish you harm. The only way to know what another person is thinking is to up and ask them.
