Well even i was same, but later i realised crying over problems is not going to make any change. Rather, i decided to fight against problems and now i feel great.

People tend to be socially detached these days.. You must have a very good network of people to make sure that you'll still be in touch with your senses in times of pressure or a good hobby to release any emotional tension since these are some of the things could trigger depression.

its a mental health disorder that can affect the way you eat and sleep,the way you feel about yourself,the way you think about things.a depressive disorder is more than a passive mood.it is not a sign of personal weakness and it cannot be willed or wished away.depression involves the body,mood and thoughts.people who are depressed cannot snap out of it and get better.without treatment,symptoms can last for months or years.

the key is not what is like .almost everybody knows that.in my opinione,what's more important is how to face this problem.firstly dont hide from the truth.face the reality bravely.secondly find the reason why you are depressed.thirdly change your weak characteristic.more over it is said that the more talent the poeple is the more likely to suffer from this desease.so balance your mood,be careful
