Yes you read it right I am getting a "new life". I was actually feeling sadness and depression from many days, I haven't gone out of my house since friday and I think it's time for me to change myself, my habits,which make me feel depressed. I finally decided to get out of my comfort zone and do things which I normally would afraid to do. I will do yoga everyday to keep myself fit, I will replace TV shows with some good books and spend much less time on social media. I hope these little things bring up major changes in my life and I would become a happy person again.

These are good changes.. please go ahead. If you already not deactivated your FB account please do that first, half of the problem will be solved.

Social media has made people victims of their leisure time. Very few people can now manage their time in a productive manner. Hence leisure time should make one feel rejuvenated and not depressed.

You are right. Facebook is the root cause of all the problems. We just keep scrolling the newsfeed and waste all our time and feel guilty about it later. It's of no use.

Its good to see that you have set yourself goals. As you keep yourself busy with those activities you will for sure forget all about your sadness gradually. I hope wish you all the best and hope that you can be happy again. There was this point in my life when i was feeling really down and i got myself a dog. It really helped. It is said that a dog is a man best friend and it is so true in my condition

Thank you. I don't want another dog. If something happens to that dog I'll become depressed again..

Happiness depends on ourselves only. Walk with integrity and everything will be fine then. Have a positive mind, absorb positive vibes only and then you will have positive life. Indulging in sadness and depression is as easy as getting out from it also. Just forget past, don't be curious for future and live your present to the fullest and then surely you will be happy.

Yes. I don't know making friends will help me because I don't like to share my feelings and stuff to anyone anymore.

Those are all good changes. I wish you the very best. I know for me when I start to feel like this I have to stay away from social media for awhile and I find doing some sort of physical activity even if its just going outside for a bit will make me feel so better and be able to focus more.

You know what, I do things regularly. I do EFT tapping, praying, novena, and I do exercise but at times I still feel little depressed, more likely when I know that me and my father are the only people at the house, plus the dogs and the cats. I feel depressed because I am longing for what our life before. The changes that happens today are what makes me really sad. I think also not working offline is what makes me sad. i know that when i start working again, my mind will be really occupy and I feel sleepy all the time.

I am sorry that you are depressed. Have u talked to a therapist? Maybe they can help you before it gets serious.

The right books would certainly help. Also focus on the good things in your life - not the bad.
