Depression is real

Depression is the state of being extremely low in spirits : dejection, hopelessness.

Anyone can be depressed and still have brave face. We walk pass each other not knowing , how low and sad the person you just walked past is. Or even wonder why the person is not smiling back.  To the world, we paint a beautiful face but what about how we feel inside?

Let us take time to talk to our partners, children, friends and colleagues. Have more deeper conversations. Signs to look out for in adults

Depression signs in children

Let us take time to talk to each other and help each other and find professional help. Before it is too  late. “we may love ourselves but when the dark forces surround you, they can push you to take your own life. Not because you are weak but because, no one saw your pain or heard your cry.  The only voice that you seem to hear is the one, that makes you feel defeated.”

It’s not easy to carry all the thoughts alone.
