Оценок: 14391 | Просмотров: 934185
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Hunter Kent, a senior at Cape Elizabeth High School, spent many of her teen years battling depression, a devastating condition that is often easy to hide and difficult to acknowledge. She courageously shares her profound journey from despair to peace, and how she now uses her past suffering to connect and empathize with her fellow students in need of encouragement and hope.

As soon as she started talking I wanted to cry I have severe depression and suicidal thoughts constantly and for some reason I just knew she was gonna speak to me and she has a speak problem which “I always try to talk to people with problems out of their control and she just seemed instantly like someone I woulda became close with and I’m so happy for her I’m not where she is but I want to get better.

im glad this beautiful heart found help. I hope i can recover like she did. Maybe its not too late, but not existing is so attractive in gloom. Its hard to not feel alone. Its hard to see tears when your in the storm

Therapists are all the same. In it for the money. All have the same answers. I hate them.

Sometimes you just gotta go to war for nine years and once you might even have to eat a rabbit's eyeball! Our challenges make us strong. Comedy helps alot too. I think about that skit on "in living color" where david alan greer is a whacked out dude in a cafe and out of nowhere he says "prince got a eyeball on his booty".

Depression does not go away It will always be "there" Sometimes it may hit harder Sometimes it may just seem "faded" But you have that chemical instability in your brain You either feel nothing for 3 months straight or feel extremely hopeless and sad and angry and confused for 3 months straight You have those days every 3-4 months when depression literally takes control over everything and you cant do anything but letting it destroy yourself Some try cutting some try drugs or alcohol or some do everything at once to try to forget that there is something you have to fight against and not just give up to but then there are people for whom all of this is not enough and they decide to end their existence

What a brave girl she is. I have nothing but appreciation for her. When u get depressed after ur twenties, atleast u know what a "normal" feeling is. But if ur depressed since childhood, u don't know how that normal feeling feels... U get into believing that ur constant sad feeling is normal.

This is such a beautiful video it truly shows the power of sharing your story! It connects people it makes people understand each other but most importantly it gives us the gift of not feeling alone! I felt alone all the time feeling nobody understood me! Started to think I was going mental but than I started to listen to others their stories just like this lovely girl it makes us connect because we speak the same language we understand d each other! And that's why I am starting to dedicate my time to bring more awareness to this subject so more and more can feel happy again We are all heroes ❤️❤️❤️

It depends if you go into therapy hoping to be cured. Helping a depressed person is actually really hard, because its as if their way of looking at things is for that time completely skwed. You can't ask them to take the glass half full approach, because the glass is cracked and the water is leaking out. The best therapists don't say much, just listen and try to help you confront the pain. Literally just look at it long enough so it doesn't scare or overwhelm you. That is hard.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I have learnt to embrace my dark days. I live with my dark thoughts, they lasts from a day to a week. It's who I am, I don't punish myself anymore. Depression isn't my friend but not my enemy either. My understanding of it has become empathetic and more open now. I hope your dark days can get better. Love and peace to you all.

That's a beautiful talk. I've a doubt, you'd your friends to help you for over it. I've none, what do I do. I loved your talk, unfortunately I could relate only to the depression part and not to the happy part.
Super Ego (8 месяцев назад)
There's the crazy talk in your head saying "I'm depressed" and "I'm so lonely", don't believe it. There's nothing wrong with anyone and everyone, all thoughts and emotion come and go, just stay calm and and enjoy the show. 😊

This hits home so hard just started a channel it’s going to be talking about me battling depression and I could use all the support and uplifting words I cAn get please follow me
Maybe my tragedy can cheer you all up and see how everything is so relative in life. I read in the comment-field that so many want to die...I just want to LIVE but I will be dead in two weeks, me AND my daughter, at least that is what we fear. Wish you the best and if it may help you to see someones life being BLOWN away, go to my channel. I hope that will bring back your willingness to LIVE Ciao from Italy

Bob Clarke (9 месяцев назад)
Im glad you can do what you have done and I admire you for it. I havnt been able to do what you have done. I have lived with depression for over 25 years and NO medication has helped me. Your words at the end about being loved, and you are worth much more etc to me are falsehoods because they escape me. My biggest challenge in life...everyday... is using vast amounts of energy at the expense of everything else in simply just trying to stay alive. Imk in tears now just thinking about how useless I am and how Ive let everyone down and I want to stop existing !!!! Im proud of you but I cant do what you have done xx
Bob Clarke (8 месяцев назад)
That statement tells me that you really dont know anything about REAL depression.

Jack shadow123 (9 месяцев назад)
I have had the same thing happen to me, only i stopped going to school in my freshmen year because every single day i told myself i couldnt go on acting like i care about living anymore. she said people who have depression have the power to get people to help them, but what happens when you reach out for help and no one wants to help. That is every waking hour of my life.

oh wow... she told her story and it was over.... yea.. that doesn't work for those of us seriously dealing with depression and anxiety... happy for her and her joy for sure.... but this is not hugely inspirational to those deep in it.
Super Ego (8 месяцев назад)
There's the crazy talk in your head saying "I'm depressed" and "I'm so lonely" and you keep on believing it? that's so funny. There's nothing wrong with anyone and everyone dude, and that includes you. All thoughts and emotions come and go, just stay calm and and enjoy the show. Hope you find the peace that you are. 😊 😊

Sucks when parents think you're trying to hurt them through your depression
Lone Wolf (10 месяцев назад)
my story : I can't even try to commit suicide even if I want to coz if I die I would giving my parents an eternal pain, who doesn't even know what depression is.

Most people say you aren't alone but some people are alone but they don't want to admit it because it makes them feel worthless. I am one of the people who pushes everyone away e I lost all my "friends" do to my depression though it may not seem like that I have depression I do and it does play a major role in your life. I want to overcome it but it's so hard I'm trying to take control of it instead of it taking control over me. I have lost all my "friends" this year do to this. I have also gotten anxiety because of it and my life has gone down hill from there. I am also afraid to admit I have it because I don't want everybody to hate me.

_Sadlex_ (10 месяцев назад)
I wish I was able to do what she did. I wish I was able to break the circles of self-pity, loneliness and bad habits. I wish I had the strength I needed to do more than work for my studies and wait tables to earn my money. Sadly, I feel like I don't have any of it.
wakulu riel (11 месяцев назад)
I have depression it's hard to cure it I suddenly cry without reason. But I'm a jolly person once I'm alone my depression starts.
BonoLightier (11 месяцев назад)
I'm sorry, but this is so shallow. Depression does not cease to exist just like that, it could years or even a lifetime. The struggle to overcome it is actually the hardest part and it doesn't simply go away like that. I wish she would be more especific in her story. I feel like a lot of details were left out

May i ask what is the girl's Instagram account coz i know a kid who has depression

To be depressed is a preoccupation with the I, the me, the self. To be raised is also a preoccupation with the I, the me, the self.
