Carrey’s explanation of what depression is?
Legendary actor J. Carrey explained what depression really is, which was the best thing I’ve ever heard in my life. The powerful thoughts he shared left absolutely everyone speechless. The 55-year-old star had suffered from depression for a long time which he recently spoke about in Elephant Journal.
The actor first rose to fame and popularity in the 1990s, but no one was really aware of the hardships the man had to face. When Carrey was 12, his father, who worked as an accountant, lost his job. At the age of 16, Jim left school in order to keep his family. At 20, he suffered from depression and was trying to find a way out.
“Desperation is an inseparable part of learning or creating something new. »
“Currently, I don’t have depression. Depression does not exist for me. Now that it’s raining, I’m no longer afraid of drowning. It’s raining and it’s going to stop soon. »
“All of this – the desire to be important, to hold a high position, means a lot. In fact, our pursuit of exclusivity only causes pain and suffering for the following three reasons.
First and foremost, it drives a wedge between you and other people who deem you unique and exclusive. Second, it confuses you, because you are convinced that the circumstances should not change.
Third, this eternal search for ourselves takes your peace of mind and makes you feel like you are definitely missing something.
The only solution is to stop pretending and start being yourself. »
Depression is our body screaming at us to stop pretending. He’s just tired of playing another character. We should take off our masks and be ourselves.
“Depression is a sign that we need long rest to play the character we claim to be. I no longer have depression. I feel happiness, sadness, gratitude, but no depression.
Everyone should take off their mask.”
