Depression Stamp by SparkLum Depression Stamp by SparkLum
I saw this in the Group Description of #Depression-victims and asked if I could make it into a Stamp, and was given permission to do so.
For :icondepression-victims:

GIMP 2.6.11

If you have something to say, please limit it to critique on the stamp itself, not the message behind it. I have no associating with the Group, I simply thought it was a nice statement and converted it into a stamp.

I really like the idea behind this, very original. It caught my attention immediately.
The violet colour fits this stamp perfectly, because it creates a soft sadness, which only strengthen the message of the text.

The only downside is that there's a lot of text to read and it feels cramped/squeezed in to fit. I barely manage to finish reading before it switches to the next.

Though once I managed to read it all, it felt like something twisted in my heart. It's because this is exactly how it's been for me.

The whole context of this stamp is emotionally moving, exactly as it should be.
It's a job well done to get the message across. I really appreciate this. Thank you. :hug:

You want to lash out and scream and in the worst of situations, do something physical to end the pain briefly, but only because you're forced to be quiet.

Actually... My depression is not from reality or over internet... I'm depressed because I have Aspergers syndrome, and for those who don't have it and says "But depression is a mental health problem" Those who have diagnoses like ADHD, Autism and Aspergers (probably more) they are depressed without knowing. I can come on thoughts like: Why am I alive? But then I remember I wasn't born to not make a difference. And just because I'm not cutting or starving myself does NOT mean I'm not depressed, because I kinda want to be able to show my arms...
LovablyAwkward Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is true. I realized it myself after I survived it and I began crying for those who didn't make it.
mmorgan6688 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2013
Oh, how I wish this was true... :,)

Depression is because of medical reasons ... I mean PROPER depression
Depression is absolutely ok and anyone who tries to make the depressed people feel guilty or bad in general for claiming they are weak or other mean stuff deserves a big FUCK YOU!
SamuiShi-Hime Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This kinda reminds me of the Johnny Depp Quote 
"People Cry not because they're weak,
It's because they've been strong for too long"
Really does,
there both good and meaningful though
xXBlackRoseWolfXx Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
3 days before my grandpa died, I randomly started crying in gym and everyone thought I was a being a baby. The day my grandpa died I cried the whole night. The day of the funeral, not one tear. After that I had depression up until today. Thank you for this very meaningful stamp.
SpartaAndHerNamine Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013  Student Digital Artist
My uncle had died months ago. I hide in my depression so I know that feel.

Very true.
Saaally Featured By Owner May 13, 2013
I really like how the message invokes a feeling of freedom from grammar, and the colour arouses a sense of royal sadness, with undertones of ignorance regarding the actual nature and cause of depression
nekofluffybutt Featured By Owner May 23, 2013  Student General Artist
So true. it has nothing to do with strength or weakness. depression does not differentiate on who it affects. Wow i hate this stamp. fucking thank you.
Saaally Featured By Owner May 26, 2013
right, jesus christ <O> thank you for joying me in the Reasonable Army aiuheiuai
and she even demanded that we don't critique the message, 'only the stamp'. a message is all a fucking stamp is o>o>o> *eternal facepalm*
nekofluffybutt Featured By Owner May 26, 2013  Student General Artist
that is very true. but it's also true that this work was for the group so if ANYONE is to be looked at is the group it self and it's message. but also because the perosn that made the stamp thought it was a good message. it is NOT a good message and points to ableism. it's true though that inner-strength can HELP you get out of this it is likely to affect you.
i agree with you though :iconfacepalmplz:

With my experiences, this is a touch hard to swallow.
GGX-444 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Student Digital Artist
nice done
luckymewpony Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013
This does not go for me, because I am weak. I've had depression for three years and nobody cared about it except for me. I have failed to overcome it, or get anyone to help me, so therefore I am weak.
Vincenttheawesome Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, people don't help you because they expect you to be strong like you probably are
luckymewpony Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013
*facepalm* You don't know what depression is.
