Though depression is pretty much beyond our control, there are ways to fight it. Are you going to any counseling? That really helps a lot. I go and many other members do and it is a lifeline for us. Providing you have a good counselor. There are times when you have to weed them out. But luckily you will or already have a good one.
Today the sun is shining, so that is a real upper for me. It has been gloomy and damp for a week now, and seeing the sun makes me happy. It is also warmer than it has been. So that is good. I try to look at the good things and dismiss the bad. Though there are a lot of bad things that happen in our lives, we can learn to take it with a grain of salt. I hope that you can learn to do that.
Mostly try not to feel responsible for other people's moods. Like your mother for instance. She owns her own moods and it is not your responsiblity to make her happy. Though trying to is a good jesture on your part, you still have to realize that they are hers and hers alone. So strive to be happy.
Here is a poem that I refer people to. It is called Desiderata, read it and let me know what you think.
I hope that you like it.
