I had all these ambitious goals about the future. I couldn't wait to accomplish them all.
-Get all A's in college
-take summer classes
-Become the best Spanish teacher I could be
-get published as a writer
-Own my own house, decorated how I want
-Get married
-Have children, raise them well
Now, I still want those things but, it seems as if over the last few weeks, I stopped caring. I'm losing passion for things I love and, I don't know why.
Also, These last few days, I've really struggled with self acceptance. I was in control of my emotions and now, I think they are in control of me. I don't know what has gotten or is getting into me.

well your still young. we go through these types of emotions. sometimes you feel I have everything figured out and sometimes it is like I don't got a clue." as far as self-acceptance, what part of you are you not accepting (or is that part of the you are not quite sure)? everyone has those periods though where they question certain aspects of themselves

what part of you are you not accepting

It sounds dumb but, I just don't feel like I am good enough.

No that's not dumb. in fact, I think most people go through times where they do not feel aqueduct enough. I think the key to try to remind yourself there is you are good enough, but you can always be better. no matter where anyone is on their walk in life, they can be better. a better person, better writer, better musician, whatever the case may be. part of life is growing into being better, not only at what we do, but a better person in general

The biggest toll depression has on people is the loss of interests, needs, ambitions, etc. It's decaying the things that were pushing you forward in the past. I had this occur to me 2 years ago and now I'm back in the same position. It ain't fun to wait this out alone. If I had the courage, I'd go talk with someone about my problems, but I ain't that kind of person. Either that or being near kind people IRL or in the web helps me. Don't lock yourself up from people like I do, because that's going to only sink you in deeper.
