Оценок: 13709 | Просмотров: 901109
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.

It`s hard to clarify how stop smoking guide “fetching zemzem site” (Google it) works but one thing is for sure, it helped me. The truth is, every info that this book provides is nothing fresh. But the second I finished reading through it. I was able to efficiently quit weed. I`ve had no issues being around other people who smoke in previous bring about circumstances.

I can`t explain why this works but this quit smoking guidebook “fetching zemzem site” (Google it) does. The truth is, every information that this guide offers is nothing new. Nonetheless as I read it, and then finished it. I was able to efficiently quit weed. I do not even feel an impulse to smoke while surrounded by smokers.

Depression really made my life so unhappy before for 3 years. I was so sad like everyday I want to to die. After following this depression remedy “fetching kafon press” (Google it), it did not only help me to take power over my life once again, it also helped me drop 44lbs!

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 ❤️❤️❤️

I begun to think a great deal of negative things until the depression that I felt became most unfortunate. But nowadays I can really claim that I wanted to live and help lots of people by the help of this depression treatment “fetching kafon press” (Google it). At this time, I can truly claim that I`m free from depression.

I still remember the time when I got myself out from depression many months ago thanks to this depression treatment method “fetching kafon press” (Google it). I was jobless on crutches in a foreign country living in a shoebox with a busted heart. But I am a totally different person today, joyful and very satisfied in life.

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.

Super Ego (5 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

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

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 (5 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. 😊 😊

Sasi Pamulapati (7 месяцев назад)
The thing I hate about depression: idk why I'm depressed.. absolutely no reason..It was just empty inside..I smile..cry..get mad..but it's all numb..I get them on my face..but I can't really feel them anymore..I can't enjoy those Korean dramas..the painting.. badminton.. travelling out with friends... nothing is interesting! And the weird thing is daily activities like waking up, sleeping is totally messed up and if I brush today..it's like"yayy I finally brushed "..either I overeat or won't eat at all!! I ditch classes..I don't want to listen anything from anyone.. especially the lecturers and their assignments..I can't..I get good grades..but it's difficult to push myself everyday to get out of my room..I don't want to get into real world. Yeah ..and I hate it..my dad says I'm coward,lazy,careless ..I'm I'm !!I agree..but I'm not like this before and ik how I'm right now and what will people get if they point out those things..it doesn't even makes things better!..and moreover I know the smart thing to do ..but I can't do it anyways...somewhere I feel like I have to suffer and make my body suffer..it feels tired and exhausted most of the time..and thats the time where I feel bad for my condition and question myself "what and why are u doing this..what happened to the one whom you feel proud of"..that's the point where tears roll on my face! I don't know why I was crying..I feel like worthless..and then search on Chrome and YouTube ..how to get out of this confusingly mad state of mine.. what's problem with me..what should I do!!!!!!I don't want to be like this...when I say this to someone like my lecturers(who are doctors)..they think I'm mad and its out of my stupidity..and yeah they told me ..that I'm depressed..my whole class looks at me as if they are above me and pity me!!!!!!!ughhh.. that's why I hate going out.. judgement..what will u even achieve out of my sadness..my friends thinks I should consult a psychologist..I seriously wanna go..but I don't wanna meet them ..again that's difficult as it's even more difficult to get out of my room ..so what should I do..I don't want to be like a dead person who is just breathing..that wakes up and sleeps..and in extreme hungry cases..eat!and yeah..that's the time where phone is the best thing ever happened who takes away the loneliness and doesn't allow to think gloomy and self-destructive thoughts..I hope I hope!!!!!

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.

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.

BonoLightier (8 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

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.

I recorded my twin crying and made a film (on my channel) about it to bring awareness about depression and other mental health issues. Society puts stigma around this topic but I believe that if people are open about having anxiety or depression and speak out, so many lives could be saved.
