Confession #312:

 

I threw my education away in favor of video games. I was deemed a very intelligent student and I thought for sure getting into a 4-year college would be a breeze (as did everyone else). But instead of caring about grades, I cared more about killing online strangers. I don't think video games overall have a detrimental effect on kids and teens, but I was one that did. 

 

 

There, serious confession! Now please continue.

Wow lots of people having depression problems. May I ask why is that? Life has so much that you can do to relieve stress and enjoy yourself.

 

I confess.. I was (almost) semi-raped once, lol. I was around 7 years old and some guy convinced me to walk with him so he'd fix my bicycle (it was broken). And.. that's enough I think. Smiley Tongue But it's not a physical abuse of some sorts, it's complicated.

Depression is weird. I don't think many people can really pinpoint why they're depressed; they just are. It's difficult to explain. It's definitely not something people can control. It's deep-rooted, and tough to admit because you can't exactly tell people why

 

For many, the simple pleasures in life are lost. There might be no joy in going to the beach, or taking a walk in the park on a warm summer's evening, or hanging out with old friends and acquaintences. The brain just isn't wired that way anymore. Those are just examples for some.

I know some of the depressions result from unusual hormone levels and such, but there has to be something that depressed person loves to do. I agree some people donot like those stuff that look appealing to normal people, but there has to be something every person enjoys.

 

For one, video games are very fun to some people while not so much for others. Same thing applies to all "fun" things to do in life.

From my somewhat limited knowledge:

You get feelings of fun/pleasure because your brain creates a certain level of dopamine (the hormone you spoke of) during activities you enjoy.. With depression, your brain DOES NOT create the regular quantity, but instead makes very limited amounts of dopamine instead, which is why you don't get the regular feeling that you should have.
