First, I hope things improve for you. Just keep moving ahead, one day at a time, and before you realize it, you will have walked to a better place.
Second, Sea Change is a melancholy and wounded album, but it can be very cathartic. As long as you let it wash your sorrows away rather than overcome and drown you, you'll have a splendid aural experience and some emotional blood-letting (in a good sense). It's always a positive listening experience for me.
I know some folks panned the album as being too dark, too self-indulgent, too self-pitying. It is all of those things to be sure. Nonetheless, it was not just a way of parading pain, disappointment, and personal failure in front of millions; it was also a way to say, "Yep, you can feel like $h!t and still get something done. I made this record."
