Are You Finding Yourself Feeling Weighed Down by Depression?
⦁ Do you find things dull that were once exciting?
⦁ Do you feel alone in your world even if you are in a crowded room?
⦁ Is there a consistent feeling of heaviness that weighs you down?
⦁ Do daily activities seem to exhaust you, and you are left with a sense of hopelessness?
Depressive moods can manifest when you are under emotionally stressful circumstances; however, depression can worsen when it is not addressed, even if the original cause has seemingly changed.
It may be difficult to talk about depression, especially if there are preconceived notions. You may think you are facing depression alone, or perhaps you do not want to draw attention to your mental health concern, worried you will be a strain on your loved ones. You may be thinking you can ride the wave until it fades. Whatever arena you are in with depression, you are not alone.
Depression Hurts Everyone
Everyone can experience low moods at some point. Some low points in our lives are part of the cycle of life, indicating that we will have a joyous ride back to the high points. These low points help us to appreciate the good aspects of life. But when the low points are lower than what seems manageable, and they last longer than is bearable, you are probably experiencing depression. Depression can cause you to feel isolated, adding weight to the burden. When you experience depression, your loved ones can also suffer alongside of you; knowing you’re hurting, but not knowing how to help.
People experience depression for a multitude of reasons, and no reason is more valid than another. Sometimes depression is linked to trauma or grief. Other times it may be oppression and lack of options in life. However, you may feel like you have lots of privilege in life but find there is still a substantial void that leaves you feeling hollow. Outsiders may not understand when someone is battling depression, but a person’s social status, life circumstance, or education level does not dictate their ability to avoid this mental health challenge. The lack of understanding, or stigmas placed around depression, can make it difficult to navigate depression, leaving you feeling supported. That is why Scottsville Counseling Center is here for you.
