Your sad life can be due to depression….it’s Ok to seek help!!!

DO YOU KNOW??

Joy, Anger, Sadness, Fear, Disgust

All these emotions hold their own importance. A fulfilled living is possible when there is a balance between these emotions. A disproportionate excess or deficit of any of these emotions is a red flag, giving the signal that you have to do something to get back to that state of equilibrium again.

WHAT IS SADNESS???

Since childhood, you would have experienced events which had happened against your expectations. Remember the time when you or your best friend changed school, your pet died, you lost your favorite toy or when you were not able to secure expected marks, you were sad. To date, you must be experiencing events that give you the same feeling.

  • ‣ Illness or death of someone close
  • ‣ Failure
  • ‣ Loss of some beloved object
  • ‣ Not getting the expected

HOW TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN SADNESS AND DEPRESSION???

Sadness is temporary; it plays its role and subsides. However, if sadness has started governing your life, if you are feeling blue most of the time, if nothing seems to be cheering you up, if you are having persistent negative thoughts about self, the world, and your future, it is surely a red flag of depression.

WHAT TO DO WHEN IT IS DEPRESSION?

WHEN SADNESS IS NO LONGER JUST AN EMOTION WHEN IT HAS BECOME YOUR LIFE,
