Depression Depression Depression!!!. It goes way deeper than the word itself and the thought of it. Depression is a common but serious mood disorder, depression doesn’t occur as a result of a serious issue or something big, it is occasionally caused by the minor things in life. Depression can be caused by loneliness, feeling of being isolated, excessive weight gain. Other causes of depression could be inability to succeed, the feeling of not being wanted, heartbreak and the list goes on.
Depression is the thing of the mind, depression steps in and it manipulates your mind, it entertains you with all the negative thoughts that could possibly surround your situation, it slowly eats you up, slowly, you find yourself not wanting to be around people, your appetite would revolve around sleep, crying and the cycle continues. While in others the cycle maybe sleep, eat, cry and repeat. DO NOT confuse introvercy with depression, while an introvert loves their space and finds solace in alone time, a depressed person longs to be alone to sink in the sad and negative thoughts that could possibly be hovering around their head.
Depression is real, Depression exists. Depression is not just a term that was coined out by foreign medical practitioners but it is a serious factor to be dealt with. About 60% of humans around you are going through some sort of depression, so many deaths have been recorded as a result of depression. In some cases depression can lead to a severe mental illness, depression can cause you to loose your mind.
