This weekend I noticed two messages from my friend Melissa in my inbox on Facebook Messenger. I got so caught up in watching The Big Bang Theory, that I completely forgot to check the messages. I was like “oh, I’m on my phone”. And then I realized that she was probably saying “hi” because she saw my name and didn’t know who I was. Since this is my first time hearing about it, I have all the messages.
This is a pretty common way of being overwhelmed or depressed. Like I said, it can be a part of being human. It’s a normal reaction to feel overwhelmed, to think about your life differently, to have trouble focusing, etc. But if you don’t really care about it, you won’t feel the way you do, and you will likely go through the motions of getting through it.
I had a friend ask me about this. I asked her if she was feeling overwhelmed and depressed. She replied that it was like a mental illness. She was getting messages from people all the time. She wanted to know if it was a real thing, and if anyone could break the cycle and stop getting messages on facebook messenger. I told her that I could. I told her that I usually got messages during my nap time and that I rarely read them.
It’s difficult to get through the Facebook Messenger newsfeed when you’re depressed, but I’m sharing this because it appears that some of my Facebook friends are getting messages. As in, real messages. I’ve read one of these messages while on vacation. I’m going to pass it along to you all. It’s from a friend who I hadn’t heard from in months and it came out of nowhere. It’s very short, but it should be pretty clear what it is.
Its so easy to get sucked into a Facebook meme, because people will tell you that they are feeling down, or they have been depressed, or they have lost a job, or whatever the reason it might be. They will then make a link to you, which is probably their way of saying, “Hey, I understand you are depressed. I’m really sorry for that. I wish I could help. I wish I could help you.
The problem is that Facebook has made it so that you can’t tell if people are depressed, let alone how to fix them.
Facebook, like most social media, is filled with rumors. It is impossible to tell if someone is truly depressed or just has a really bad mood. If you think someone is depressed, there is a good chance they are because of a bad breakup, or a job loss, or a car accident, or something else. So, if you have a person who is depressed then you have to talk to them about how they can fix it.
Now, Facebook messenger is probably the closest thing to a “conversation” in the Facebook realm. It is a communications platform that allows you to take a message to another person. So if you are depressed (or just a really good talker) then you can easily send a message to another person and let them know how you’re doing and ask them to call you if you need anything.
Facebook is actually designed to help you get through the day. With its ability to see all your friend’s status updates, you can easily see if you’re getting any new messages. It’s also a good place to go if you are having trouble communicating with someone and need to vent your frustrations.
Facebook is a great platform to send a message to someone and get a response. It’s a great place to chat or text someone on the go. It’s a great place to show your support. But it’s also a place where you might find yourself getting messages from people you don’t like or who don’t want to see you.
