Depression is a word on most peoples lips. We all have a thing about it. We most times see friends, colleagues etc passing through a feel of life and tag it depression because the person probably looks sober. However, depression is far beyond all we see…..
To be able to get a grip, one needs to do a soul searching with such questions like;
What is my response to the happenings around me?
What do I give too much attention to?
These are important to a man’s well-being because some depressed people do not even realize it till it is late.
What is depression?
Depression is a mental health condition that can affect a person’s thoughts, feelings, and behavior. It is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities that were previously enjoyable.
The worst scenario is a man losing control of his feelings but lacking the ability to tell what the happenings are. Man is designed to encounter challenges that are not likely to overshadow him, but sometimes, if not well managed, these challenges can lead a man’s focus out of the way and start giving attention to what is not real and enlarging it in the thought mind until it is out of control of the individual.
Symptoms of depression can vary in intensity and may include:
– Sleep disturbances
– Change in appetite, weight Fatigue or low energy difficulty
– concentrating or making decisions
– feelings of worthlessness
– Thoughts of suicide or a self-harm.
Depression can arise from a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors. It can affect people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. This is to say, a case is not special to anyone; it can happen to anyone. Depression can be seen as an issue that everyone is suffering from and should be given immediate attention.
Treatment for depression may involve medication, therapy, lifestyle changes, or a combination of these approaches. With proper treatment, most people with depression can manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
Food for thought: nothing should be held in too high esteem because everything carries the ability to fail. Put yourself together; see you on your best day
