I dunno, i still think there is no difference. What you think ?
Boredom is a kind of desperation I suppose
Boredom doesn’t make me suicidal, but depression does.
Yes, desperate for change, is that what you mean?
Some people do selfharmactivies out of boredom like drugging, alcohol etc.
I think boredom is intermittent and easy on the mind and body. While depression is heavy and long.
Desperate for something meaningful to happen
Yes, that what Google says, similar.
I used to get bored, then I accepted the sensation and used the time where I couldn’t help to do anything to relax, and rest my mind.
Now I’m only bored when I feel lethargic enough to not want to do things, so I relax and rest then too.
That’s a personality disorder or addiction.
You are saying people experiencing boredom have a personality disorder? I mean as well, bored people not only drugging, alcohol etc. they start picking fights and doing dangerous stupid stuff.
OMG no. If you’re self-harming you likely either have a personality disorder, a psychotic disorder, or both. Healthy people are able to be bored without causing some sort of fuss.
When I’m bored I wander around the house but I don’t cut myself or feel suicidal
I got antagonised (pushing buttons to get a reaction/response) when i was young, i couldn’t escape the exposure to these people, maybe that why i selfharm and have sz. Thanks @velociraptor, i got something to work on.
Yes, you do healthy activities, i do unhealthy activities when i am bored.
