What Is The Point?

Depression is an annoying jerk. It affects different people in vastly different ways, but its most-common weapon is when it comes to you with one question that it asks over and over again.

“What is the point?”

That’s it. That’s all it’s got is the ability to ask you, “What is the point?”

What depression lacks in eloquence, it makes up exponentially in repetition. All depression can ask you is, “What is the point?” But it can ask you, “What is the point,” with tireless aggression.

You can give depression good answers. You can give depression half-worked answers. You can flat out lie to depression in hopes to give an answer to “What is the point,” that will just shut depression up for long enough to give you peace.

There is only one answer that will make depression happy. That answers is, “There is no point.”

And then depression will ask you, “What is the point?”

After you’ve given the answer depression wants, that there is no point, depression doesn’t have the common courtesy just to give in once you’ve give up and given it what it wants. Remember, depression is an annoying jerk. They are predictable. They will continue to be jerks because that’s what they do.

Depression will continue to ask you, “What is the point?” You will continue to answer, “There is no point.” Depression is an instigator, and the answer it wants you to give is a lie, but if you speak a lie enough times, you forget what the truth could actually be. Depression is an annoying jerk that will continue to ask, “What is the point?” because it has nothing better to do. Depression has nothing else to do, but ask you, “What is the point?” It is all depression can do.

You have to refuse to answer. You have to find a way to stop playing games with depression. Depression can never really go away, but you can shut it out for periods of time. You will need help. Don’t think you can hold off depression by yourself. Depression is an annoying jerk to everyone, so just about anyone will be willing to help you beat depression back for a little while.

People who must do serious battles with depression know the value of a day without being asked, “What is the point?” Because depression will eventually come around again asking, “What is the point,” a day when you don’t have to hear that question is cherished and loved, and can be banked when they need to find an answer when asked, “What is the point?”

Depression is an annoying jerk. It affects different people in vastly different ways, but its most-common weapon is when it comes to you with one question that it asks over and over again. “What is the point?”

The main key to surviving a battle with depression is to know that the war is never over with depression. You will always have to battle depression from time to time. Build an army of people as your support systems, and do not be shy about who you recruit. If you are dealing with issues of depression, bother all the people you think may love you and a few who don’t until they help.

And stock up on answers for when depression does come back around asking, “What is the point?” You can never have enough answers to throw back at depression. But know there is always a point. Depression can’t process there being a point, so it will keep asking the same question until you admit to it there is no point. Depression can’t process there not being a point either, so it will keep asking the same question until you give up on yourself so that you don’t have to hear the question, “What is the point?”

Keep answering. Keep fighting. Keep surviving.
