Before I have things I need to get out of the way, I do have a question... It's about the person I love very deeply who is depressed... Do you have any advice for what I could do to help...? She seems to find comfort in me being around, but she's clearly very depressed and stressed about things in her life, and has been for a very long time... She is the kind of person who tries to live in the present (the whole 'the present is a gift' quote is something she's said before), and has a 'look forward to the future attitude', but it seems as though these outlooks do not give her a lot of comfort... I can endure my own pain a bit longer because I realize it's a sort of 'price' I'm paying for being true to myself, but I'm really upset by any suffering she has to endure... Anything at all would be helpful... She lives very far away, but I just want to know of any suggestions I could use that might help to brighten her life a little bit... I already know she's on antidepressants and they don't seem to be helping a lot... She puts on a happy front a lot, but long ago she told me that she was hiding her pain... Right now all I can really think of doing, and I have been doing it, is to send her comforting emails on a regular basis just to remind her that I care about her and she is never truly alone.
