Am i depressed?

Life can be hectic at time. Some times life expectations cannot rhyme with the reality of life this may leave you sad and depressed. I believe in your 20’s, their is so much expected from you by the society and the pressure may at time get to you. Pressure can be about being financially stable, getting married before 27 years and even having kids before 30.

This means that you should look for a job and have a family. I personally believe that most of the people get depressed at the age of 20’s. Picture yourself in a relationship for that you have invested everything. You believe this partner is really meant for you. Four years down the line you break up. Because of the expectations you had from this relationship you may end up DEPRESSED.

At the age of 20 you decide to take a course lets say Civil Engineering. You go to school for five years. Practice may take around three year and then here you are full of ambitions and dream. You apply for a job and get turned down. You decide not to give up time flies and three years down the line here you are living in your parents house with no job. You become DISAPPOINTED and DEPRESSED.

Having inner critic may be the reason why am DEPRESSED. When you constantly keep telling yourself ” I can’t do this? I don’t deserve this? I am not good enough? ” Negative thoughts can really bring your moods down and make you an unhappy person. You need to be positive about yourself and life in general.

Loneliness can be at time so depressing . Here you are with no friends or maybe a family that is no so supportive. Coming out from an abusive relationship can be so stressful and DEPRESSING.

In conclusion I can advise someone with depression to seek professional help or talk to someone it can be a friend or even a stranger. A problem shared is half solved. Less expectations less disappointments.
