Depression – There are many people that do not realise that they are suffering from depression, it is not something that has pain attached to it, not physical , it can emotionally hurt in a big way, but, that does not mean we can see it or feel it, others are more likely to spot it before ourselves. When you suffer from depression you can feel anxious, have weight loss, can’t sleep, and feel worthless, this can go on for years until you recognise it. It is hard to discuss initially with your family , as you feel like a failure, but your family will be a great support for you, once it is out in the open, It is very important to talk about it and ask for help if you have any doubt about how you are feeling, depression is not something to be ashamed of, it’s you at this moment of time, and you are not a failure or anything else you may be feeling, you just need a little help and support. You will be understood and people can come through on the sunny side and see that life is great, just as it was once before. When you have someone near to you who is suffering from depression, please be kind, considerate and understanding, they need a lot of love and care,and do not see things as you do at that moment. Be there for them as you would want them there for you.
Forcing yourself to be happy or faking happiness is a warning sign of depression. You must create positive thoughts, every positive thought propels you in the right direction.
Everybody wants happiness
Nobody wants pain
But you can’t have a rainbow
Without a little pain.
