It’s a trap. The most frustrating thing about depression is that you fall into a vicious cycle. Even if you are completely aware that you are falling in, it is not easy to come out of. Often we find ways to cope with our feelings that make it worse.
Nearly 30% of people who are addicted to drugs also suffer from depression! The worse is when people do not understand. They may say, “Just snap out of it!” You would if you could! Because of that, you may have a tendency to isolate yourself. But isolation will make everything seem even more hopeless. You also would not have an outlet to work through your thoughts and emotions.
