For myself, I wouldn't say that I feel melodramatic, but I do have a hard time talking about my depression with people for a few reasons:
At the other end of the spectrum, I sometimes overshare and end up embarrassed that I've told people so much!
It's difficult to find a balance.
Yes, i can relate... Not necessarily when talking about depression but about anything else important to me. I figured this is related to a core belief in me, i.e. ‚that I don’t deserve to have the same rights as others, when they talk about issues‘
which is a really mean lye...
Not sure if this helps..
Sometimes when I talk to people I try to explain how I am feeling then I stop myself because I feel like I don't really know what I am talking about. I have a few people that support me but I never want to talk about my depression because I don't really know how to express myself and I think maybe they will think I am just being melodramatic or lying. I hope this is making sense. It is just really hard for me to make sense of my feelings and then when I really think about it I think maybe I am making too big of a deal about something and I should just keep it to myself. This makes me want to isolate even more. Does anyone else feel this way sometimes?
