Isn’t it normal to feel sad after a bad day when you get the lowest number on an exam or have a fight with your best friend? Is this really possible to be happy all the time? Can you really enjoy each and every moment of your life? The answer is simply NO.
You’re not a robot who can work non-stop without getting tired. Whenever you feel frustrated, just take a break. Watch your favorite movies, read a book, or treat yourself to your favorite dish. And after this break, when you feel alive, go back to the field. Trust me, this time you’ll smash everything like HULK. But what if you stop enjoying your favorite things also? What if nothing attracts you anymore? Don’t you think it’s a bad sign when everything fails to make you feel better? I mean, it’s okay to be sad. But living in the cage of sadness day after day is not even normal, since it can be a signal of depression.
Have you ever felt that you don’t have any idea what you’re doing with your life? Have you ever stopped enjoying your daily life for a long time? If it’s a YES, then doesn’t it mean you’re losing interest in everything? Doesn’t it feel like you’re not the same person anymore as you used to be? If all these feelings are hunting you every day for at least two weeks, it could be due to clinical depression. Among the 9 types of depression, clinical depression is the most crucial one. Because it’s more than feeling blue or being sad. It affects the way you think, feel and behave. The constant feeling of sadness or losing interest in everything is the primary sign of it. And that’s why clinical depression is also called unipolar depression or major depressive disorder or MDD. The most painful part of MDD is that it stops you from being the real you.
What could be the reason behind Clinical Depression?? There is no single cause of clinical depression since it can be triggered in many ways.
• Some environments or situations are so stressful that they force us to become depressed, such as losing loved ones, relationship problems, divorce, or family problems, or hostile workplace or college environments.
• Sometimes a person is the cause of their own depression because they constantly criticize themselves. They’re never satisfied with their results, no matter how much better they are.
• Depression can also be inherited from one’s parents if it runs in the family.
• If a person has a serious illness, such as AIDS or cancer, he is more prone to depression.
• Hormonal imbalances can also cause clinical depression.
What are the signs or symptoms of being clinically depressed?
Constantly feeling low or losing interest in everything is a major sign of clinical depression, but there are some more.
• Sleeping issues such as excessive sleeping or insomnia
• Loss of appetite or excessive eating
• Constantly feeling empty for no apparent reason.
• Even though everything is fine, you are upset and crying.
• You’re stuck in a rut and don’t know what to do with your life.
• Guilt or blaming yourself for everything bad that happens.
• Feeling tired despite doing nothing.
• Feeling frustrated, anxious, and unable to focus on daily tasks.
• Thoughts of sudden death or committing suicide.
Is there any cure for Clinical Depression? To get rid of depression, no one can help you better than you. If you want to say goodbye to depression, eat a healthy diet, try to get sound sleep, do exercise & yoga. Most importantly, learn to love yourself. Learn how to say goodbye to toxic people and their toxic relationships before saying goodbye to depression. Tell yourself you’re better than anyone & you can be the best today or tomorrow. Do you know your best friend could be the best doctor? Talk to them. Just tell them that you want them to be your listeners. Expose all the painful secrets & stories that are hunting you down. Then watch the magic as your heavy heart disappears suddenly. Because depression can’t live in light & clean heart. If the situation is way worse, then go to the doctor. Remember, depression can never be a choice. No one wants to, and no one can live in depression. Try harder to get yourself a healthy life rather than getting a wealthy life.
