Five Simple Words: I Am Suffering From Depression

Yes, you’ve read the title right. I admit that I am suffering from depression. Many people have this misconception that being depressed means you can’t get help. When in fact, all you need to do is acknowledge that you are suffering from depression. I have no idea why I feel depressed. I just do. Maybe, just maybe, I’m unhappy with my job. I don’t feel appreciated for the effort I put in doing work even after office hours. Sometimes even losing sleep trying to get work done, and having to go to back to office on both Saturday and Sunday for web conferences with colleagues in the U.S. and Malaysia.

I’m really unhappy. Yes, it’s normal for people to feel sad and unhappy. But to feel that way to the extent of losing appetite and sleep, I think it’s time to really quit my job. Maybe it’s time for me to move on and work in something I feel happy doing. Like the zoo. My ideal occupation/job would be to an animal assisted therapist. I want to work with people and animals. I believe that people can overcome their problems like depression and stress when they interact with animals. I, myself feel happy when I get to interact and play with animals.

I guess writing this post helped me feel better about myself and laid out my thoughts.

Thanks for listening! (;
