Question what has depression taken away from you?

Well I dont know if there is such a thread...there might be.
If so, the mods can remove it OR if they think it should be in another section..they can move it..I dont mind.

This thread is about depression, and what it has taken away from each one of you...
( I dont know if the title of this thread makes sense..Forgive me if it doesnt..Im hopeless with words)

So I will start off..

It has taken away everything I loved in my life.
I have everything and more..yet...it all has no meaning.
I had reached my goals in life...I was content...but now..it doesnt
mean a thing..
So basically, depression has taken away the meaning in my life.My purpose.
It has taken away the "old me".
Im sure there is more I could say. Plenty more. But right now..this is all I can say....

Depression took away my esteem, my purpose, and my happiness in life.

I can only hope that, as we learn to manage and overcome our depression, our lives will be filled with joy and purpose yet again.

*hug*

It finished off my self esteem after constantly reducing it for years.
My partner,
My social life,
My motivation,
My ambitions,

Depression has taken away

My motivation for reaching goals
My promotion and being content at work
My strength inside
My purpose
and each time it comes back my hope

I can say with all honesty that it took my soul. As obscure as that word means to me, I can only describe it as the light that drives me. The happiness, the hope, and the drive that keeps most people moving forward in a merciless world that consumes the weak.
