Am I Depressed Or Just Sad? Quiz

You are a little bit sad. My guess is that you've recently gone through a traumatic event such as the death of a loved one or a messy breakup. Either way, you're not depressed, exactly, but you're feeling very low right now. Talk with friends or family and try to fill your days with happy things, doing exactly what you want to do. Keep on enjoying life and don't let it get to you if you can possibly help it.

First off, I’m asexual so yeah. Also nobody died 👁👄👁
Second, I’ve been like this for a year and my parents did nothing about it which is great.

So, last year, (I'm in middle school) I went through a hard time. Not as hard as my friend though. I actually think he was the reason I was depressed, I spent a lot of time with him. Anyways, I just wanted to say that if people say stuff like, 'you don't have a reason to feel like that' or 'you're not sad!' they can't really say stuff like that. I know for me, when my friend told me he was depressed, I didn't want him to be, so I said that he had no reason. People just say that stuff because sometimes they don't WANT it to be true. And I know that probably half of you don't want it to be true either. For me, I just reminded myself that I am loved. Even though I felt like I wasn't, I knew I was.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

God sent his son to die on the cross FOR YOU. That is how much he loves you. I just wanted you to know that, and plz don't end your life. Find some help.

For anyone who reads this, I want you to keep reading. Middle school for me made me very depressed, so my mom gave me these bible verses, and had me carry them with me everywhere. Whenever I felt sad, or doing something stupid, I would read these cards:

Matthew 11:28,
Come to me all you who a weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Psalm 23:4
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil. For thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.

Jeremiah 29:11
"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you, and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope, and a future."

These are only a few, but I know that they can work. They worked for me, and they worked for my friend. Remember that God loves you, and he has a purpose for you!
