Hmmm. I think it means feeling genuinely content with your life. Like there's nothing major about your life that you want to change. When you wake up every morning, you feel happy to be alive.

Good question. I haven't felt genuinely happy in a very long time. So much has happened to me that has changed my experience with happiness forever.

A rollercoaster ride. Around the age of nine or ten, my mom and I lost our apartment. Not too long after that, my grandfather died. Throughout those moments in my life, no one ever asked me how I was feeling about the situations, so those emotions just manifested inside me. Suddenly I found myself in middle school. My way of thinking changed until I realized I wasn't who I used to be. similar to other situations in my life, my mom thought it was stupid and only took it seriously when I was almost hospitalized. I was then diagnosed with mood disorder and anxiety.

Personally, it feels different at different times. Sometimes it feels comforting and familiar. Other times it feels like a cage. Sometimes it feels overwhelming and sometimes it feel like nothing at all.

There are so many of them. One of the main ones is that depression only happens to white teenage girls. This is far from true as black teens are actually more likely to have depression. Furthermore, it happens to people across all gender identities. Another misconception is that depression is always feeling low and wanting to die. This isn't true, as depression can give us both highs and lows. Feeling suicidal isn't a constant emotion in those with depression and neither is self harming. It varies from person to person.

I don't have any tbh, because I'm still learning to not get comfortable with my depression. But I think it's always a good ides to sit with your emotions, rather than try to escape it or cover it up. Also, give yourself things to look forward to.
