  • Why Depression Means A Whole Lot More Than Just Being “Sad”

    Depression can infect even the people with the brightest smiles and loudest laughs. Depression has the uncanny ability to wreak its havoc on the beautiful, the rich, the successful, and the blessed too. No one is immune to this frightening and dangerous emotional disease. Depression has managed to destroy the lives of so many innocent people who neither asked nor wanted to be caught in a perpetual state of sadness. Depression doesn’t only manifest itself in that moody friend whom you know; the one that you and your other friends never like to hang out with. Sometimes, depression can manifest itself in one of your friends; the ones you least suspect of being severely depressed. Remember that depression is a state of total emotional darkness.

    A depressed person isn’t the one who is always going to you for help with their problems. Depression is represented best by the people who feel like they can take on life on their own. They know the destruction that depression can bring and so they choose not to infect others with this horrible emotional sickness. They want to be the sole bearers of the pains of depression because they know that not everyone can take it. They yearn for the moment to win their war on depression, but it makes them all the more lonely to know that they fight this battle alone. No man is an island, and we are all in need of constant community support with whatever we want to do in life. Depression shouldn’t have to be any different. Depression should never be left to deal with on your own.– Continue reading on the next page
