Depression can hold a huge taboo for some. There can be a stigma attached to needing or asking for depression help as if somehow we should suffer alone or seek solace in unhelpful habits or addictions. Depression may be sometimes so medicalized that the person inside experiencing this gets overlooked. We can all get depressed from time to time, and when we are, nothing can feel worse than someone telling us to cheer up putting pressure on us to always stay positive, change our attitude, keep busy, start living, or that we should be grateful.
Sometimes before we can get in touch with the things that support our happiness, wellbeing flexibility, and we may need to let our depression pass. Fragile human beings that we are, we are all susceptible and vulnerable to depression. Each person has a set of reactions impacting their spirits and we may be seeking depression support. It can seem as if layers and waves of depression come upon us and for others be more like a constant companion with little respite. It can be as if we are surrounded by a fog of feeling blue or feeling nothing.
Our depression can cast a long shadow over us and can be like a big weight on our shoulders. We can feel utterly alone, blame ourselves, and unable to receive comfort from others or comfort our self.
