Depression can be overwhelming.
Depression can feel like a downward spiral into feelings of sadness, fatigue, and apathy.
You could be successful, hardworking and leading a productive life AND be depressed as well.
Maybe you even eat healthy, exercise and have many friends who look up to you and consider you to be a role model. Maybe people around you think you have it all.
But beneath the surface, there is some sadness and a sense of emptiness. Or maybe you are experiencing a significantly diminished interest or pleasure in the activities you do most of the day.
You are starting to view your own life in a pessimistic way. You might be disappointed in yourself and increasingly thinking about past mistakes and regrets.
You tried to shake off your struggles but it only takes one little thing to take you back to feeling sad and discouraged. There is little joy in your life but you have to carry on because you can’t afford to stop.
Your struggles have negatively affected your self-confidence. Sometimes, you compare yourself to others and feel "not good enough" and inadequate.
You feel stuck and there is a little “dark cloud” of self-doubts over your head.
Perhaps, you are feeling a sense of helplessness and lack of control over your life and future.
