This is pretty good advice.>Commit to an ideal
This cured my depression when I was younger, I started with small goals, things I wanted to accomplish in a certain period of time and I worked everyday to get.
First thing I wanted was when I was 16, I looked at my parents and told them I was going to move out when I was 18.
So I did, when I made 18 I moved out, I was homeless for a time so I wanted to find a job, I was jumping from house to house, sometimes staying one or two days at friends houses or at abandoned buildings.
But then, one year later, when I was 19 I got a job and a place to live (with some other people but still it's not the street)
And now I'm working into paying some bills and getting an apartment, I was so concerned and so occupied I had no time to let depression get me.
Some days where sad, yes, but after you make it to that objective you want, it's magical.
It's been a while since I did those things but depression is not a concern anymore.
Try to be dating op, it's all or nothing, worst thing you die and that's it.
