20 Psychology Facts About Depression

  1. Depression distorts your thinking. When you are depressed, your mind can play tricks on you. If you have thoughts of suicide, please call someone immediately. Don't let a temporary glitch in your thinking cause you to harm yourself or another.
  2. That moment when you randomly feel depressed for no apparent reason may indicate that you're missing someone.
  3. Sleep is a good indicator of recovery. It is linked to fatigue, memory, and concentration. The better you sleep, the better the days are going to avoid depression but in a limited manner not too much or not too little.
  4. A small amount of stress helps you to remember things better but a large amount hinders your memory.
  5. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that depression will be the 2nd highest cause of disability by the year 2030, 2nd only to HIV/AIDS. Globally, more than 300 million people of all ages suffer from depression currently.
  6. Most of your decisions are made subconsciously.
  7. People who laugh even on silly jokes are the most depressed persons.
  8. Chronic pain can be another symptom of depression. At the same time, being in continual discomfort can cause you to become depressed. When you are depressed and in pain, it can be hard to know which came first.
  9. A person with depression will not look into your eyes.
  10. Friends are also an important part of depression recovery. We are social human and we tend to secrete serotonin and other good neurochemicals when we communicate with others, we feel safe in the company of others. 
  11. If you feel sick, simply looking at a picture of a loved one can soothe the pain.
  12. Roughly speaking, losing something makes you twice as miserable as gaining the same thing makes you happy.
  13. Women are twice as likely to suffer from depression than men.
  14. Singing and dancing when tense helps you avoid anxiety and depression.
  15. Overthinking is a special form of fear. This fear becomes worse when adding anticipation, memory, imagination, and emotion together.
  16. By 2020, depression will be one of the leading causes of death and disability.
  17. Feeling ignored causes the same chemical effect at that of an injury.
  18. Not being able to forgive someone causes resentment which leads to bitterness, causing a person to always feel depressed and fatigue.
  19. Mindful meditation can offer great insight into oneself. But it can be difficult to do as it is all about concentration. It should be done at the end of recovery. It can make one aware of the problems before it arises.
  20. Exercise is the easiest and least expensive cure for depression. Just walking 30 minutes a day will help you and sometimes completely alleviate your symptoms. For this reason, many therapists take walks with clients instead of doing "couch time"

He played the guitar at the church. He was a best friend to my other friend, so I'm not really close to him. He was funny and sometimes quiet too. I was interested in his character. I was 16, and he was 18 years old at that time.  Well, you know what people say, love is blind for a kid, and I realise that I was still underage at that time. Having a relationship is not my kind of thing when I was still 16 years old. But still, having a crush is not a crime. So, I kept that feeling until I was at college.

Looking back on that memories, it was funny, though. He was 20 at that time. Sure did, I tried to
