Depression, is it realy nessecery?

I mean honestly, yes a great majority of people feel that an esential part of the gothic lifesstyle/scene is a fasination with the so called 'morbid' or 'darker' aspects of life. but is it realy nesecary to pretend you are manic depressive? if your fasinated by birds to cover yourself in feathers and jump off a cliff.

I'm sick of meeting all the little try hards "oh I'm so sad... my lifes fucked up, nobody loves me wahhh... i'm going to kill myself"

get over it! whay kill yourself? there are SO many nore deserving people ::

I really dislike people who act depressed too, since having suffered it myself. There's a big difference between enjoying things that people would consider morbid and pretending to be a sad loser. Of course, people would assume if you like things like that then you are a depressed loser, which obviously isn't the case.

Depression has seriously nothing to do with "Goth". In other words, it can afflict anyone, people from all walks of life can fall victim to this.

Whatever, but you're a drip if you don't like mellow drama.

Its true, it does hit everyone, i know many depressed ppl in this worlde, and none of them are "goth" or even remotely close to it. I dont know tons ppl into the darker lifestyle, but of all the ones i do know, only one was seriously depressed, and she is no longer. I was depressed once, not too long ago, but i had my reasons for that, as do most, but i got my ass out of it.

So yeah ... the point of all this, it certainly does not have anything to do with "goth" ....... although it seems to be quite commonplace ......

I had a lot of existential problems when I was younger, but I am happy now even if I am a morbid fuck who wears too much black...

I don't see any reason why depression should be obligatory. It's a medical condition, not a lifestyle...

Good you should always be comfortable or try to be. It isn't so much depressed as it is respecting others individuallity. In order to be an individual it works better letting others also be individuals. Some combining factors of most Goths is liking black and certain types of art/music.

It really isn't anyone's place to put down depressed people. You should treat them like anyone else. Some Goths listened to music I didn't like such as New Kids on the Block. As long as I didn't have to hear it, it was fine. Same with a moody friend of yours. If you don't like it change the subject or let them know it is bringing you down.

It is very sheepish to let others thread on your personnal space. And as said to me, from time to time, I now tell you, "Get off the Cross."

Depression, is it really necessary?

Only if you're depressed.

Depression necessary? No way...though everyone has their highs and lows.

Nothing is "necessary" per se as far as this all is concerned...though sometimes I question if there really is any sort of subculture at all...

Seems more like people hanging out with similar interests. There isn't really a platform or purpose to it.

Exactly...its a similarity of mindsets, I think, but personalities and individual beliefs are widely varied.

some kid was wearing a "i hate myself and want to die" tshirt. i gave him my lighter and my drink and told him "if you wana die so much, pour, and spark." i then offered him a knife. he refused.

if you say so much that you want to die, im sure you would have by now.

depression is not at all mandatory. im as happy as anything most of the time, i arse about and do as i please. i hate myself yes, but thats just because all of my self respect and related self feelings were shattered at an early age.

That's why I say, "Why not?" It's not like it is hurting anyone. Even if it was, it all ammounts to nothing anyway.
