Depression feels like sadness

According to Mental Health.net “Depression is a result of an ongoing struggle that depressed people endure in order to try to keep up emotional contact with desired objects.” That really puts things into perspective. It also provides good reasoning about why so many teens affected.

  • Challenge

As a teenager, trying to keep up emotional contact can be a very challenging thing. You have to do. Your parents, teachers and friends all expect something of you, but at the same time, you may feel incapable of doing whats required. All this while you’re desperately trying to build your own character and become your own person. It’s this idea that can make you think that depression is a hole you’ll never climb out of which, of course, will make you feel even worse in the long run. Understanding who you are can help you recognize triggers that set off your depression.
