Today was a big day. We don’t use this structure to say that a day was bad.
Try: Today was a very hard day.
(But not for a good reason. )
Well, I woke up earlier than usual because I had to go to the doctor. I was feeling sad and depressive as I normally feel, but I didn't expect to be diagnosed with Major depression. I don't know what to think, to be honest, but I feel like my life is getting harder than usual.
I can't handle this all by myself. I feel insecure about myself most of the time, I feel ugly, annoying and useless.
Something keeps burning in my mind and I don't know how to get over this.
Examples: as sad as: it is a comparative: I feel as sad as my brother….
My life is getting harder than natural (this noun here is not the right collocation- usual is a better choice)
I don’t know if you got things off your chest (desabafou). But if you did I would like to give you some pieces of advice:
Never think you are ugly;
We must always think good things about ourselves;
If you are depressed, fight against it with all your strength;
You must think: I am a winner, I am a special person, I am a beautiful woman;
Don’t stay at home: go running, go for a walk and try to observe the good things about life such as nature;
We are what we think, so please stop undermining yourself;
Read good books;
Go to the cinema;
Hang out with your friends;
Talk to someone you really trust;
You know English, so try to participate more here on EE; it may be good for you to distract yourself from your depression;
I just want to finish telling you that you are a special person. And very brave too! Don’t give up!
Sometimes in life we get through difficult situations and they come up in our lives to be overcome.
Be strong my dear friend.
