There’s no one reason for depression, and it can happen to anyone anytime anywhere. Anyone can get affected by the depression like any other virus, or as any epidemic infects humans. Similarly, this depression can infect humans. In another words, we can say that depression affects people of every age, race, region or economic background. Even though depression is common these days, and even it is common in teens these days.

What makes a person depressed:

Numerous factors and matters influence people like routine ups & downs in our daily lives, business or other matters or factors including our human biology, our genes, our brain chemistry and hormones. Some people are affected by the environment including daylight and seasons, or social and family situations they face. Some people have personality issues like how they react to life events or the support systems they create for themselves. All these factors put direct impact on humans, and make them depressed. There is also a problem with insecure people who remain worried about depression or insecure about being depressed or rehabilitating with depression.

Brain Chemistry:

Chemicals called neurotransmitters help send messages between nerve cells in the brain. Some neurotransmitters regulate mood. When a person is depressed, these neurotransmitters might be in low supply or not effective enough. Genes and brain chemistry can be connected: Having the genes for depression may make a person more likely to have the neurotransmitter problem that is part of depression.

When left untreated, depression can have serious consequences:

If left untreated, depression can have serious and sometimes long-term consequences that can affect every aspect of your life. Fortunately, depression is treatable. By getting help and following your treatment plan, you can prevent these complications.

Suicidal Thoughts:

Having thoughts of death and suicide are symptoms of depression. If depression is left untreated, these thoughts can get worse and dangerous as time passes.

Drugs Addiction:

Having drugs to get relaxes when try to fight with depression and people oftentimes takes drugs just to make their mind fresh and once they get addicted to that drugs so it becomes more dangerous because combining drugs and alcohol with depression is a dangerous mix, which can increase the risk for suicide and further your depression.

Mental Health Issues:

When people become emotional, self-injury takes place of another way. Some people try to cope with depression is by self-injuring or inflicting pain upon themselves with methods like cutting or burning when people are feeling hopeless, angry or really bad about themselves, When a person becomes angry, he also misses every old thing and that makes him more emotional and angry as well.

Relationship Makes Depressed:

Some studies have found that over 60% of those with depression consider relationship problems to be the main cause of their illness.

Many of the couples who just wanted to be in the relationship to get a tag mark that they are loving couple, try to set their relationship which even don’t exists between both of them. Often couples do not understand each other, and instead of ending up they move on which takes them to the depression.

What Does Depression Do?

Depression also affects Health:

Health Concerns. Depression can become an unhealthy cycle. People with depression need to take good care of themselves to feel better, but because of the symptoms, they are unable to sleep (or sleep too much), don’t want to eat and have no interest in exercise. Because they are unable or unwilling to do these things, the depression worsens and health suffers. When we don’t take care of ourselves it can leave us vulnerable to other illnesses, such as the flu, or worsen health conditions we already have, such as diabetes.

How to Get over It°

Life is full of ups and downs. Stress, hassles, and setbacks happen (but hopefully not too often). How we react to life’s struggles matters a lot. A person’s outlook can contribute to depression — or it can help guard against it. We can’t control our genes, brain chemistry, or some of the other things that contribute to depression. But we do have control over how we see situations and how we cope.

Build Resilience:

Try thinking of change as a challenging and normal part of life. When a problem crops up, take action to solve it. Remind yourself that all the problems are temporary, so nothing lasts forever. It will let your mind cool and comfortable from any unpolluted thoughts.

Build a support system. Ask friends and family for help (or just a shoulder to cry on) when you need it. Whenever you feel alone and completely exhausted by the situation and feels like everything has just ended up, always share your feelings and emotions to someone with whom you are close and do this same, like offer to help when they need it. This kind of give and take creates strong relationships that help people weather life’s storms.

That is how you can get over it. Remember, depression is treatable and so all of these dangerous consequences of untreated depression can be avoided by just believing that God is always here for you.

Life Goes on, so don’t worry everything will be okay and fine, not immediately but one day definitely and don’t lose hopes. Because if you have hopes to have everything, so always hope for the best so that all best things will come to your way.

Be strong to face life in all its forms.
