Depression is a mental health disorder
Depression is a mental health disorder that leads to a variety of emotional and physical problems. It is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest and it negatively affects how we feel, the way we think and how we act.


Let’s look at it from a psychological perspective.


Being depressed is basically being in the dark, mentally and physically and no happiness is found in the dark. For those who have lost their light and sparkle, they are prisoners of their own mind.


They are ashamed and believe they are not enough or they are not capable of winning the current battle they are faced with, they need to understand that as long as they are alive there is hope and are capable of overcoming anything but first have to free themselves from the mental prison that they have caged themselves.


Here are some reasons for depression


1) Forgetfulness: They have forgotten their worth and what they can become often as a result of some factors like abuse.


2) Cognitive Prison: mental prison is very common nowadays. They are prisoners of their own mind and they are the key to set themselves free.


3) The Big Step: Whatever is the contributing factor to their depression has to be taken away. It could be work, a partner or anything. We all deserve to be happy and live life to the fullest and if anyone or anything is not allowing you to be positively productive in all area of your life, it needs to be taken away. For instance, if you are in a relationship that causes you a lot of pain and leaves you a shadow of yourself despite the effort put to make it work, you need to run from it. There is nothing wrong in looking out for your self.


What depression does to you:


1) Erratic sleep habits
2) Abnormal loss of appetite/abnormal increase in appetite
3) Self-destructive habits/suicidal thoughts
4) Muscle stagnation
5) Constant fatigue
6) Back pain and headaches


People who are depressed constantly seek self-pity or validation especially from their partners. They think this will make them change for them. It’s the worst way to live. They need to understand that we only live once, we need to live every day being the best version of ourselves and no one can do that for us except “us”. Our happiness should not be determined by a person or thing, it’s a choice we ourselves constantly need to make.


It’s so sad when you hear people say things like “ how can she kill her self because of heartbreak “ or “he’s stupid to commit suicide because he lost a job”.


What we don’t understand is that that was the breaking point, the point they felt I’ve had enough and can’t do it again.
Everyone is faced with different challenges and we all cope differently and then they are some that lose it completely, they tell themselves they are not strong enough to cope.


Ever had a bad day, you’ve been holding it in, then you get home and then something small like your food has been eaten or you looking for your keys make you burst into tears and people around you are wondering why you are crying over something as insignificant as that, but you understand that it’s because of piled-up emotions and that little the incident was the breaking point for you. That’s the same way it is for those people, does that make their actions justified, NO! on the contrary, that was the wrong route to take.
