So what exactly depression is? Obviously there is not a proper definition to this except it can be called as a phase of extreme sadness. It is also categorized with change in emotions, feelings, behaviour etc. Some depressed people don’t feel sad at all—they may feel lifeless, empty, and apathetic, or may even feel angry, aggressive, and restless. It can be caused by several reasons, it can be a heart break, financial issues, chronic disease or a goal which someone has failed to achieve. People start to consider themselves as a burden which initially leads to death. Sounds awful but it’s true. Also depression has many types which cannot be even pronounced correctly. The list start with names like bipolar, schizophrenia etc. However, there are many things you can do to support one’s mood and reduce the risk of recurrence.

How to deal with it?

In India most of the people are not aware of depression yet this is common in many other parts of world. People consider it mostly as madness or ghost like thing. Depression sucks out the energy from one’s life. Makes the person feel regretful and guilty for rest of their life. Coming to the topic, there are several ways you can overcome it –
1. Consult a Doctor as soon as possible
2.If the person is suffering from minor depression, show him/her comfort and unconditional love. It will really help them to have their blissful life back.

All it needs is determination and hope. You only live once! Life is truly what one makes it.

P.s – I am not a doctor or a consultant some of my views can be wrong or right. Feel free to correct me. Let’s learn and grow!

  1. Good post aanchal and you are right. I have some friends with similar problems and they feel they r a burden and try to avoid public life or anything that wants them to be out of house 😐 it’s so sad to hear them say so. Well v r doing what we can to get them out of the shell ( by counseling and in a way irritating them😅 to making them follow what v say and thus understand that what they thought was all wrong)😀

  3. This is really true, sometimes a the people around a person don’t realize their loved one has depression. Sometimes even the person suffering from depression doesn’t realize he/she has depression because many think depression involves just sadness, but that’s not true.
