If you asked me last year what I loved doing I’d say traveling... but today is completely different.

Everyone talks about how depression isn’t that serious or to just hang out with friends so you won’t be that sad, but the truth is depression takes over your whole body and it’s sortve like you’ve lost control of yourself. To be honest, writing this and sharing this with you all has already given me anxiety because most wouldn’t expect this from me, nor family, and in fear that I would be judge.

I have gone through several traumatic experiences from when I was a young child to recent months, all in which have affected me tremendously in ways I never thought could even happen. I always told myself I will never let what has happened to me be the reason I stay in pain and anger in my heart.

Depression has made me lose interest in absolutely everything that I loved doing before.

Depression is believing that my life isn’t worthy anymore.

Depression is wishing I could be as happy as my friends but I feel like I won’t ever be.

Depression is watching the time go by, literally hour after hour, then it’s 9pm and you’ve realized the day is gone already.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
