Most people are blind to the fact that having depression is a common issue. Depression is a disorder that in context is severely detrimental to the victim’s mind. Living a life that is almost always full of despair and gloom on a daily basis is very hard to deal with.
I know what it’s like to deal with depression; I was diagnosed with depression at the age of 18, but I have struggled with it since I was 8. I know what it’s like not having anyone to turn to when times get just a little too overwhelming to deal with. Having people there for you is a much better feeling, and it can help get you through the day a lot easier.
Most people pay attention to their lives and are blind to people who are enslaved by depression’s cold and lonely darkness. This can change, but things will only get worse if nothing is done. People can’t read minds, but they can help take away some of your stress, simply by just talking with you. Depression makes your day hard to get through, but giving up will never help make life better.
