Depressing quotes often deal with feelings of loneliness. They may talk about what it's like to be isolated from others by circumstances beyond your control. Some depressing quotations reflect on what happens when you drift apart from the people you were once close to, while others strike out against the idea of "fake friends" who can't be counted on to be there when they are needed the most.
Another common theme found in these types of quotes is the hardship or banality of everyday life. However, these quotes often use dark humor to make light of such serious subjects and help us get through them. Musician and actor Oscar Levant joked about his mental health issues, “I was once thrown out of a mental hospital for depressing the other patients.”
While sharing quotes about depressing things can be a cathartic way to express difficult emotions, these types of thoughts are sometimes a cry for help. If you're struggling with insomnia, anxiety, changes in appetite, or a lack of interest in activities you once enjoyed, you may be suffering from clinical depression. Being evaluated by your healthcare provider can help you find a treatment plan and a brighter future.
