How do you cope in hopeless situations?

I code. I started coding as a way cope with depression. I'm an introvert and in general have trouble socialising with people, I just keep coding thinking that this will change things for me one day.

beating myself down when I don't understand a coding concept; I see the solution and it seems so simple

This happens a lot, I'm from a non CS background so I know how it feels. Things that literally took me weeks or months to learn, another person might learn in a day or two.

Just don't give up. Not knowing the answer today, doesn't mean you will never find it. If you have no clue on how to solve something, explore something else instead. You will find your eureka moment eventually.
