Most people have felt sad or depressed at one time or another in their lives.
Feeling depressed can be a normal reaction to loss, life’s struggles, or injured self-esteem. It can be triggered by events that we believe should make us happy – like being newly married or having a new baby or for a teen, reaching senior year and being accepted to or going away to college. Our lives change overnight in ways that we could not have anticipated and it can feel overwhelming.
Sometimes when feelings of sadness last for days or possibly weeks it has moved beyond the ‘normal reaction’ state. I often hear clients say, “I am just not happy and I don’t know why”. The result of the feelings can be a lack of motivation, a loss of interest in things that one normally enjoyed, a feeling of melancholy and/or social isolation.
The good news is that Depression is One of the most treatable of all mental maladies.
