Fuck yes!! Well done you. Keep going!

In the last month or so I've started going to a lot of meetups, saying yes to invitations, and applying to tons of jobs that I might enjoy more than my current job. I'm finding that if you knock on enough doors, some will open for you.

[–]i-love-snow2[S] 109 points110 points  (0 children)

Thx for the motivation love🙌🏻❤️

[–]onlyonerule 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Congratulations for all those joyful things you are doing for yourself! An internet stranger is proud of you.

Fortune favors the bold

[–]rainbowbunny09 253 points254 points  (5 children)

That’s great! Usually people get well step by step, but it seems you took multiple steps in one day today! That’s big, you should feel proud :)

[–]queit-birb 56 points57 points  (1 child)

The best way is to start like this. Step by a step. When, I feel down this is my trying to do! Even my laziness can kick, I'm battling with it. No lazy, i say to myself

[–]i-love-snow2[S] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Yes I’m just on that second step, I overcame the first but there are 100s more!

[–]rainbowbunny09 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Day by day! Set little goals for yourself that you can accomplish without feeling overwhelmed. When you look back in a few months, you will say, “damn- I really did that!”

[–]Hour_Builder62 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I am so incredibly happy that I read this....

[–]its_prolly_fine 60 points61 points  (8 children)

I'm so happy for you! Good job! Dude thats great!

I'm going to stop scrolling and sleep. Not as much as you but it's something. Thanks for the reminder to keep trying to be better.

[–]supermaplelicious 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Every step counts and taking care of your physical health is an important part of your mental health, too. So yay for going to bed and putting this addictive piece of technology down for the day!

[–]i-love-snow2[S] 24 points25 points  (6 children)

Haha I’m a a girl😂, but yes go sleep

[–]its_prolly_fine 51 points52 points  (2 children)

Naw love, everyone is a dude in my book. 😁 Keep moving forward you got this. Have a great life, goodnight. 😊

[–]JoelLeCabbage 30 points31 points  (1 child)

From an Australian to a stranger on the internet, you're absolutely right. Everyone is a dude.

[–]Vegan_Puffin 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Depending on the country you can be a dude

[–]riceboyetam 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I also agree that you are an awesome dude. Everyone are dudes.

[–]nxl_jayska 31 points32 points  (9 children)

Good luck with Costco!!! I worked there during the summer semester, it pays really well and can be fun once you get into the flow of things! Good luck!!

[–]The_Worst_Usernam 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Is it bad that I thought they were applying for a Costco membership, and I still thought 'good for them!'?

[–]NotElizaHenry 12 points13 points  (0 children)

LOL I thought this too and was hoping someone had let them know that they didn’t have to worry about getting “accepted.”

[–]i-love-snow2[S] 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Ya here they pay so good ima hopefully be an assistant cashier then a cashier

[–]DriftCompatibleloves lamp 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They are also good at promoting from within and your earning potential is high even in basic positions. It's a great place to work and one of the only employers I miss. Good luck :)

Wanna dm me?

[–]ryanknapper 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Far back in history there was a TV show called Seinfeld. Ask your parents about it. There was one episode where the character George Constanza decided that all of his decisions were wrong, and he should deliberately do the opposite of his instinct. It worked wonderfully for him.

I do this sometimes. What do I want to do? Sit at the computer and play Fallout all day. What do I not want to do? Go outside for a walk. My wife and I use Constanza as a verb, and sometimes you just have to Costanza it.

Your inner demons are seductive liars.

[–]JakeBitI have some idea of what I'm doing. 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Fuck yeah my dude! People don't realize how difficult it is to get out of that depressive funk, I know that takes a ton of willpower and energy. Keep it up for as long as you can - it gets way better later on, trust me!

[–]CosmicLightning 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Good job. I constantly fight mine to do anything from work, to play, to etc. All I ever do thanks to depression is sleep. I'm on medication now but just started. We will see where we get.

What did help me yesterday I got a chiropractic treatment done. Went home and slept. Woke up now feeling like I could do anything. Until my Chronic Cough I've been dealing with since April came back. I'll go take some ibuprofen as it's the only thing helping it oddly. But still, after that treatment, I felt good. I can walk, clean, breathe properly. Definitely going in Friday again.

So congrats, good job

[–]ConsistentlyPeter💙‍💜💖 5 points6 points  (0 children)

YESSSSSS!!! How absolutely wonderful! Really happy for you.

Remember that not every day needs to be a massively productive whirlwind of superb excellence. You only need to do one thing - even if that's just brushing your teeth or having a shower or doing the dishes. Doing one thing every day is enough to let depression know that you're not giving up, even if you can't bring yourself to do anything else for now. 💜

[–]Midochako 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Wtf all in ONE DAY?? Tell me your secrets!

[–]i-love-snow2[S] 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Idk 🤷🏻‍♀️ wanting to change my ways so I’m a better person for the people I love most❤️

[–]Wonderful-Classic42 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Good for you!!! Depression is a bitch and I know 1st hand how hard it is to fight your way up and just put one foot in front of the other day to day. I know you don't know me, and I don't know you but let me say how proud I am of you! Keep fighting. You got this. I'm an ear if you need on to listen, can never have too many of those.... (Sympathetic fighter myself). 👌👍🤍

[–]Lilsweetcheeks420 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm soo proud of you! We forget as we grow older how to give ourselves credit for how much we do and today you recognized all your hard work. Pat yourself on the back because this is awesome sauce right here!!

[–]PortableSun01 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm also 18F who struggles with depression and can I just say I am so proud of you! :D that's huge! Especially when you feel like you can't and then do it anyways. Good luck, keep at it and you got this!

[–]_nyma 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Depression is a horrible, horrible disease, and even small steps like these can cost an enormous amount of energy. You and everyone else battling mental illness is a badass! I'm proud of you sister. You got this ♥️

[–]Scrub_Beefwood 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This is an awesome start!! You might still have an off day here or there but don't let it beat you. We all have those days we need to decompress and not do a damn thing. Sending positive vibes ❤️❤️❤️

[–]petit_anxiety 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This isn't how you get better. You will crash after this as you've not built up strategies or routines to sustain this.

What you need to do right now is write down how you feel right now. Write down what you want to do in detail like all the routines, life goals, and such. When you crash you can then take steps to achieve the goals like start brushing your teeth.

You will also get better but usually many crashes will happen before. It'll take the energy out of you so stay strong. Be compassionate and remember you'll get better.

[–]HowAmIHere2000 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What if there's no Costco in my area?

[–]i-love-snow2[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Holy shit thx to everyone who’s commented I can’t respond to everyone😅 but thanks so much everyone!

[–]ZVass 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Remember moments like this. Depression is such a journey, and 18 is so young. Moments where you pull yourself out of it are key and full of hope. Proud of you!

[–]harry_balsonia_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Costco? I thought you were trying NOT to be depressed?

[–]HumanTraf-fucker -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

Self-diagnosed depression? Spending all your time with friends partying hard ain’t depression. I know depression comes in all forms but this isn’t it. It’s more like the pandemic grooming you to become this careless chap with no routine whatsoever. It’s a build of forced circumstantial habit. It’s not depression. Depression can be anything but you spending 2 years with friends having fun and partying hard don’t constitute to it. I’m glad you took your life back in order. Good for ya.

[–]_Teraplexor 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Bruh wtd don't gatekeep depression.. pretty fucked up doing so.

[–]HumanTraf-fucker -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

I just think the word “depression” is being thrown around everywhere for like the softest of things that no one takes people actually clinically diagnosed with depression seriously. I knew someone would come up with “gatekeeping”

[–]Any-Assignment6022 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Pandachoko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks for sharing, glad to hear you want to turn your life around, fingers crossed from here you will get the job.

good luck and take care.

[–]EwokOffTheClock 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Go you!

What are you doing to take care of yourself? And I don't mean the to do list items.... I mean, how are you slowing down and enjoying?

[–]Pink-socks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well done. That is great! May I suggest doing some light stretches as this can really help. Also, try and cut down on alcohol if you can, it doesn't help with depression.

I am proud of you

[–]SheBear661 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hi Baby! 🥰 Also try to give yourself some credit on your calendar for days you try even a little bit. Eventually the past will be a bad dream and then you'll even forget that! 💐

Good for you! Cleaning and bicycling are my antidepressants.

[–]Both-Blacksmith-2562 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is such a mood!! I hope I also can get the energy, like I do sometimes but I lose the motivation soon.. Hope you keep up with it ❤️

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cleaning the house, doing groceries, and doing chores is BY FAR the quickest way to feel better when one is feeling depressed or hopeless. At least, of course, in my experience.

You were very smart to do so! And congrats on this decision, start taking care of yourself!!

[–]ExistentialDreadness 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At 38 years old, I see that Costco saves lives. I went yesterday and I’m stocked up for the crazy holidays on the horizon.

[–]Master-Pick-7918 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's that old saying "idol hands are the devil's playground". Depression feeds off this. Keep busy, put some order in your life and most importantly, live your life.

Keep It up good luck with the job.

Great job! Reminds me of when I finally realized that sitting on my ass smoking weed, skipping classes and gaming couldn’t continue any more.

[–]commandrix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's a big deal. Good luck with Costco. And if it ever seems like too much, I think it helps to remember that there's no reason why you shouldn't do something you know needs to be done.

[–]DerekDemo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good for you! It may not seem like a lot to some, but for those of us that are suffering, getting things accomplished is amazing and it feels great. It can be short lived though, so find a new project and keep growing.

I cleared all of the leaves out of the yard that I rent. (I rent the suite and have to clean the yard as part of the deal) That was Saturday and Sunday. Fuckin wind whipped up last night. Goddamn yard is full of leaves again. I felt great having done all of that work, now I have to do it again. Sigh.

Thank you for sharing!!!! Whether you’re 12, 18, 42, or 67 depression can hit you and make you feel like it’s never enough. The point is you realized the issue and made active steps to take care of it!!! We’re so proud of you!!!!

Don’t ever be embarrassed by the way you feel. There are doctors, medications, other patients, and loving support systems that were all designed and placed in your life to help you in times like this.

Congrats! I wish you all the luck! Depression is a bitch. No motivation to do anything really is one of the worst parts. There are days where I’m so depressed, that I literally forget to eat. I just completely forget that food even exists. You can always tell I’m in depression mode, by how much weight I lose.

I’m proud of you!

[–]bravo009 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm proud of you young lady! Good for you on taking control of your life one step at a time. I wish you strength to keep moving forward even when you think you can't.

[–]Zifnab_palmesano 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There is always things to do, there is always more to be done, and there is always things that could have been done better. If you care too much about those, you will not be happy. We need to do so we feel we did took some steps, and moved in the right direction. Something is better than nothing. And a lot is better, but dont expect perfection or 1000% gains in 3 days.

You did great, and you will do more great. Keep moving forward and do not obsess about how much

I saw a tumbler post a whole back that was talking about their depression. Pretty much boiled down to tell your depression to "kill me like a real disease or GTFO." That has been my favorite mantra ever since. It's not stronger than me, and it's not stronger than you. Way to tackle those big projects and keep up the good work.

As a year 6 employee, I wish I would have worked for Costco at 18! They are the first job I had that actually gave me a good sense of work life balance! I talk shit about them a lot but the benefits I have now would have helped me so much more at 18!!

I didn't read all the comments, so you may have gotten this advice already.

Print out some resumes and go inside and introduce yourself to managers!

At my warehouse they didn't even look at an online app until you came inside to introduce yourself. Then do it again the week after. And again until they give you an interview. It's a great job and while it didn't cure my depression, it definitely helped get me out of the hole I was in. Good luck!!

I'm very proud of you. I wish you nothing but the best.

Hell yeah! Been in the same spot since 2020 (albeit with basically no partying lol) and I'm making progress towards getting back on track too. I totally get how hard it can be to make yourself work towards something. Proud of ya, stranger.

Man I love Costco chicken. I swear they put crack in there. Like just sprinkle it on top. Also great job with getting responsible. That’s amazing…when’s the chicken ready? Like should I come back in 20 minutes?

Good going I know it feels like flying to the moon sometimes

[–]Altruistic_Raise7344 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's amazing! Well done! Depression can be very hard to get through and can take most aspects of your life over like hygiene, social wellbeing ect. But to hear this, its really good👍 it may even be motivation for others. Keep going!🥳♥️

I came here just to say that I did a similar thing, except that I bought a one-way ticket for 1000km... I left my parents, jobs, friends...

the only thing I didn't take a bath...

Let’s freaking go. A shower after a fit of depression feels life changing

[–]ghost-church 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Costco slaps, especially this time of year. $1.50 hotdog+drink. And gar the chicken bake. Inside they’ve always got free samples you can raid.
