Occasionally we can all feel rather sad, disillusioned or just fed up. While these are feelings are certainly understandable and relatable reactions to stressful incidents and unpleasant experiences, it is also rather common to feel them for no reason at all. But if they continue over a period of time, they may likely be signs of depression.
Depression Counseling should not be ignored in any manner, since, anxiety and depression both might creep into your brain slowly and do the damage. Depression directly touches one in six of us, with common symptoms that can include lack of motivation, concentration difficulties, unwarranted pessimism, frequent sleep disturbances, persistent irritability, unexplained crying, recurring suicidal thoughts, social isolation, changes in eating, decrease in sex drive and a marked lack of enthusiasm and pleasure, especially in things we used to enjoy.
If you are suffering from depression, you, unfortunately, won’t find quick or easy relief. Your feelings of sadness may go on for weeks and months and interfere in a major way in your relationships, job, and even your overall health.
