31 Powerful Quotes to Defeat Depression

Hello my friend, In this post, I want to share with you 31 powerful quotes which would help you in your journey to defeat depression. These quotes have a flavor of motivation, inspiration, and positivity inside them.

There are lots of negative quotes on depression all over the internet but Positive Kunal believes in the power of Positivity. So, these quotes are not about the negative feelings that you would experience during depression. Instead, all these quotes are written to motivate you and fill you with positivity.

Depression is the most negative place one can ever visit. I have visited this place 3 times (2 times major and 1 time moderate) and I don’t like even 1 second that I have spent in this dark place.

I have spent 2 years in depression, and every time, I came out of it on my own. I haven’t taken any medication. I followed only practical methods (no matter how hard), and I defeated depression each time.

That being said, this post only exists to motivate you and help you in your journey to defeat depression. Now, let’s start 😃


The Most Awesome thing I have ever done was continuing to live when I wanted to die. Fuck you depression.

This is a very important quote on depression. There was a phase in my life when I was feeling suicidal and even attempted one…but I failed. Thank God, I failed. These thoughts of suicide are not mine but were generated by depression.

Don’t ever entertain the thoughts of suicide. My friend, you are worthy, important, required, blessed, and a miracle. The probability of taking birth as a human being is 1 in 400,000,000,000,000; You are that blessed and fortuitous.

Don’t waste this precious opportunity, which you may never get again during successive birth cycles. You are on this planet to live your life to the fullest and to do something awesome. So, respect your life and take responsibility for bringing your life “out from the clutches of depression”.

Grab knowledge and make a plan to get out of depression, so that you can use your precious human life to do something useful.

Note: If you are facing uncontrolled thoughts of suicide, contact someone immediately – such as your loved one or doctor.


Every Single person who fights depression and gets out of it is a Badass.

Such an uplifting quote on depression. Depression is not an easy mind state to deal with. It is the most negative mind state, and only a person with determination and commitment can defeat him effectively. There is no easy way to defeat depression (If you have found one then do tell me).

So, fight depression and get out of it…and be a Badass. I’m proud of you.


Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden. It is easier to say “my tooth is aching” than to say “my heart is broken.”

You need to take care of your mental health. Don’t hesitate; fuck what others think, and do whatever it takes to bring your mental health to normal. Mental health is as important as physical health. Remember, you need a healthy mind to take healthy actions.

This essential quote on depression is one of my favorites.


I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless, and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that – Robin Williams

This depression quote is the truth. Only by experiencing sadness, you understand the importance of happiness.


Depression is committed to make your life a living hell. So you need to be more committed than depression if you really want to defeat him.

Very important quote on depression. Defeating depression is not easy. The reason why some people never get out of depression is a lack of commitment.

Awesome one…you have to show some commitment if you want to defeat depression effectively. Only by doing easy activities such as taking antidepressants may not provide you a depression-free life.

You have to perform some tough actions, and you need to get out of your comfort zone. Instead of feeling discomfort listening to depression, it is better to feel that discomfort while doing something.


People who are looking for easy solutions to defeat depression forget one universal truth: Anything worthy is not easy to get.

Did you get anything “really worthy” that easily in life? Hell No!

Anything really worthy is not easy to get. Accept it or run away from it – the choice is yours. This is one of my most popular quotes on depression.

Another truth from which people run away many times is: It is easy to say and difficult to do.

It is the truth of life my friend. It is always easy to say and difficult to do. It is easy to say, “I want to defeat depression (hardly takes 1 sec)”, and difficult to keep on taking action and persevere so that you can really get out of depression.


Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

Nothing comes easily. You have to go through problems, failures, and hardships throughout your life so that you can develop yourself mentally and physically.


It feels like everyone else is moving on with their lives while I am stuck here, in this hole that I can’t climb out of.

This is depression who is feeding you these thoughts. Believe in yourself, keep on putting efforts, and never ever give up – you can do it. You have those superpowers inside you – depression is giving his best to hide them from you. Are you giving your best to find them?


Having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. It’s the fear of failure, but no urge to be productive. It’s wanting friends, but hate socializing. It’s wanting to be alone, but not wanting to be lonely. It’s feeling everything at once, then feeling paralyzingly numb.

This quote on depression is one of my favorite ones. Anxiety and Depression are like sisters.


People think depression is sadness. People think depression is crying. People think depression is dressing in black. But people are wrong. Depression is the constant feeling of being numb. Being numb to emotions, being numb to life. You wake up in the morning just to go back to bed again.

You have to wake up and work on completing the steps required to defeat depression. Depression wants you to sleep but Positive Kunal wants you to wake up, face depression, and use your day in fighting depression.


You will feel better than this, maybe not yet, but you will. You just keep living until you are alive again.”

You can do it, just focus on defeating depression. Follow a proper method, be consistent and patient…and you will defeat depression sooner or later. No one can stop you.


Depression is the most negative person you can ever met. If he is your friend then get rid of him asap.

If you are in depression then waste no time and get rid of him ASAP. Depression only becomes more powerful day by day if remains unchecked.

Depression is the most negative person you can ever meet. Once detected, you must get rid of him. Don’t let him make your life a living hell.

Depression is determined to make you depressed. In the same way, you must be more determined to defeat depression. Take some action today and defeat depression.

This is quite a bizarre quote on depression but I believe that depression is the most negative person on this planet.


Getting better from depression demands a lifelong commitment. I’ve made that commitment for my life’s sake and for the sake of those who love me – Susan polis schutz

Defeating depression and then never get into it again is really a lifelong commitment. Make this commitment for the betterment of your precious human life, and for your loved ones.


Sad hurts but its a healthy feeling. It is a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different – J. K. Rowling

Depression is not just sadness, extreme sadness, feeling, or a phase of life. It is much more complex than that. This depression quote is a very important one to understand for all the people living on this planet.


Depression will not go away in 2 days. Depression is determined and you have to work hard and smart for atleast 21 days to defeat him.

Such an eye-opening and inspirational quote on depression. It is not like you can take antidepressants and depression will go away. Antidepressants are not a permanent solution to depression – they may provide you temporary relief though.

Moreover, if you don’t take them in moderation, you can become dependent on them (or even worse, addicted).

To defeat depression you have to follow a proper practical method. You have to be determined and committed. You have to work ‘hard and smart’ for at least 21 days. Only then you can defeat depression. Only by saying, nothing will happen.


Anyone who has actually been that sad can tell you that there’s nothing beautiful or literary or Mysterious about depression – Jasmine warga

Yeah! There is nothing positive about depression. He hates positivity. He is himself a big monster of negativity. This quote on depression is one of my favorite ones.


If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation. Depression just is, like the Weather – Stephen fry

If you can help a person in depression, then help him/her but don’t ask many questions, and try to understand him/her. This informative quote on depression is for everyone. Please don’t judge a person in depression – get some depression awareness.


Depression: Hey! What are you doing?

You: I’m going for a party.

Depression: Sit in your home and think about how many regrets you have in life.

You: I have regrets but I can’t do anything about them. I will now work to have no future regrets.

Depression: Listen to me and don’t go.

You: Hell no! I will go.

Just a random positive talk with depression. During depression, your mindset would become negative. Depression will constantly feed you negative thoughts but you need to talk with ‘yourself and depression’ in a positive way. Positive Self-talk is indispensable during your fight against depression.

This is a different kind of quote on depression 😉


The ones who know nothing about depression, never faced it even once but still say bad things about people facing depression. Fuck you all and I mean it.

Yeah, fuck all these people. This motivational quote on depression is straight from my heart.


Unless you don’t make defeating depression your life’s no.1 priority, you can’t defeat him. Period.

I have talked to lots of people who are facing depression and they ask me, “Hey Kunal, how can I defeat depression?”

I tell them everything they need to defeat depression, and after some days when I ask them about their implementation of the steps required to defeat depression, they tell me “I am busy with something else”, “I have other works to do”, etc.

The reason these people will never defeat depression is simple: It is not their No. 1 priority in life to defeat depression.

Unless you don’t make defeating depression “Your #1 Priority in life”, you will not defeat him. Period. This is one of my most popular quotes on depression…and an uplifting one too.


I wanted to write down exactly what I felt but somehow the paper stayed empty and I couldn’t have described it any better. Depression is Emptiness.

Very apt and relatable quote on depression. I like it.


Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.

You have to live and defeat depression so that you can do something useful with your precious human life. This motivational quote on depression is just awesome. It gives a lot of power and encouragement.


I’m not in this universe to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this universe to live up to mine.

Where Expectation ends, Peace Begins. Expectations are bad. Start decreasing your expectations, and at the same time, tell people who expect things from you to stop doing so.

Instead of living life expecting things from yourself, focus on learning, implementing, and improving yourself. Growth and Development should be your motto.


For a person in depression, even going to pee is a big task but he does it because it is a necessity. This kind of necessity is required if you want to defeat depression.

Just do it kind of attitude is needed. Another depression quote straight from the heart.

You have to keep on putting efforts in the right direction, and should never give up – no matter what problem or obstacle comes in your way.


Depression: Hey, go to bed and overthink for next 4 hours about how useless you are.

You: No, I will not do this. I am worthy, I am on this planet for some purpose; I will spend my next 4 hours in learning about blogging. Go Fuck yourself.

Depression: You piece of shit, go to your bed and overthink, don’t go against me.

You: I am more powerful than you, don’t you dare to do any harm to me. I am determined to defeat you and I will do whatever It takes to defeat you.

Depression: He is getting out of my clutches. Shit!

Another Self-talk with depression. I’m a self-talker from my childhood times. People call me psycho for having this habit…but today, do I barely care? Hell No.

I talk with myself every day. Do you?


No one realizes how strong someone with depression has to be just to do daily stuff like shower, brush hair, or get out of bed.

Depression awareness is required so that people understand that depression is not just another mental health problem. It has a caliber to make your life a compete hell, and a place of ‘close to zero activity.’


Only by crying, depression will not go away. Depression is laughing when you are crying. So, be strong and laugh to make depression cry. Fight depression, Fuck depression.

By crying and cursing yourself, depression will not go away. Instead by your crying, depression gains more power. Don’t let this happen.

I see many people who are crying every day and then expecting depression to go away; This will never happen. Depression will not go away until you put some efforts in the right direction.

You have to take your depression seriously but fight depression with a smile on your face. An uplifting and encouraging quote on depression.


Depression is not an illness. It is the most negative mind state once can ever visit.

We need to spread awareness about depression. Depression is not a mental illness like schizophrenia, it is the most negative mind state…and to get out of this negative state, you have to follow a proper method.

You are not a psycho or mentally ill if you are in depression. Your mind state is just completely taken over by the negativity of depression – that’s it.

Awesome one, don’t listen to ignorant people who say: If you are in depression, you are weak. These people have never faced depression, so they don’t know a dime about it.

This is one of my most popular and controversial quotes on depression. But the truth is truth, depression is the most negative mind state, not a mental illness.


Human is fond of counting his troubles and problems, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that life has so much to be gratful of.

You are alive, have working hands and legs, you can see, you can listen, you can talk, you can understand, you have a working brain, you have a healthy physical body, you have a smartphone, you got an internet connection, you have clothes to wear, you have shelter over your head, you have food to eat, you have water to drink, you have parents, and this list never ends.

Every day, show some gratefulness for the things that you have in your life (and taken for granted by you). Instead of feeling sad for things you don’t have, show appreciation for things you have.


Depression: Hey! You go back to your bed and overthink about how many opportunities you have missed in your life.

You: No! I will not go to bed. Instead, I will sit on my chair and spend my time creating opportunities rather than waiting for one.

Depression: Don’t argue with me! Go and overthink.

You: Fuck you.

Another random positive self-talk with depression. How much time do you spend on self-talk? I spend a lot.


Don’t let depression destroy your life – your life is worthy, important, and precious. Face depression and defeat him – but don’t ignore him.

Depression’s job is to destroy your life; to make you feel sad, hopeless, worthless, irritated, angry, and so on but you need to take some action.

Depression will not go away from your life automatically, you have to take some big actions if you want to defeat him.

Don’t ignore your depression. Moderate/Major depression can even generate suicidal thoughts. So, if you are in depression, take action today. Follow a proper method and get yourself out of depression. You can do it 😃
