We all have different mindsets but what if those mindset of some people were proved right/wrong. I am writing a blog again on this topic but in a different way just to change some people’s mindset, because there are few things which we think but aren’t the way they are. Today we’ll talk on Depression VS Sadness.
Alot of us feel depressed and sad too, but we get confused between them because they word mean the same but have different feeling they may seem alike but they are not the same.
Depression is not just sadness, it is weight that keeps you on the bed. It makes us feel empty, like nothing at all while, sadness is a tangible feeling. Sadness is easier to talk about, but depression it’s unexplainable and leave us silent- even my friends keep asking me about why I look down or upset I can never explain them the feeling that I’m going through, this happened with me even today where my friends kept yelling at me about me being sad all the time and I couldn’t explain, little did they know it wasn’t my sadness but my depression.
At the end of the day depression keeps us stuck, even fun cannot fix it instead it isolates us from the things we love, beleive me even I had stopped writing, reading, music, talking to family and friends, having my favourite chocolate Cornetto, craziness for the color green, for a very long time because I just wasn’t myself all I wanted was to lie down on the bed sleep and never wake up, sometimes I even think I love my scars so much because they have stayed with me longer than the people who were with me….
Sadness is very real and difficult emotion to process. Depression is an overwhelming numbness that requires professional help.
Both feelings are valid, but if someone opens up to you about their depression don’t say, “I’ve been sad too” but LISTEN. It’s very hard for someone to sit quietly and listen to a depressed person all of us are just so excited to speak up and just put up our opinions, I know how it felt when you wanted to say so much but scared to say anything because no fudge would listen all bash you down with their words and it leaves you to be quiet….
