31 Funny Quotes To Lighten The Mood When You're Feeling Down And Depressed

Funny Quotes To Make You Feel Better When You're Sad And Depressed

Some days, depression can make it hard to just get out of bed in the morning. It is a constant struggle to be consistently sad, and sometimes it can be hard to go out with friends or family because it feels like putting on a face to hide your depression.

I know, I've been there — and it's exhausting.

Remember, if you are constantly fighting depression or a similar mental illness or mental health issue, then you probably try to keep yourself from slipping into a depressive mood fairly often.

You may laugh your way through difficult or uncomfortable situations — because it's easier than telling the truth about how you feel — or you may have difficulty letting someone in — because it's hard to let people know you are struggling. You're supposed to be constantly strong, but sometimes you even struggle do tasks around your own house, or you have to remind yourself to not cry.

Life really is about balance, and when you are not happy or something feels out of wack, then things feel more difficult than they should.

A good thing to remember is that whatever is stressing you right isn't going to matter in 5 days or 8 months, or 10 years down the line. You may feel stressed and anxious right now, but that doesn't mean you'll always feel that way, and there are ways you can help to prevent so much stress in the future.

Remember, stress is not something worth compromising your health over, and depression is treatable if you know when to ask for help. And sometimes, the help you need is right in front of you. Maybe it's your friends coming by to watch a movie with you, or maybe it's something even more simple that you need to help you back to happiness — maybe like a funny quote or a positive meme that puts a smile on your face.

Whatever it is that helps you find happiness, do it.

So use these funny quotes below to show you that you are not alone in your depression, and know that a good laugh may be all you need to pick you back up, lighten the mood and get you back on track to feeling happy again.
