Capturing a Black Hole It’s unreasonable to define something so arbitrary as depression in just a few sentences. For me, depression is a vacuum, something that pulls up everything: it takes away the good, bad, joy, sorrow, anger, etc. It affects the way you function and takes control of you.

Why is it that the people who care the most about you hate to see you fail? Do they feel your pain? Even though they may not physically feel what you are going through they do understand that failure is rough.
