Depression grabs your motivation, optimism, and drive away, making
it impossible to take action that can make you feel stronger. Even if thinking about things you can do to feel better, including exercising or spending time with friends, can seem exhausting or difficult to put into action.
Depression will make many people feel lonely. It results in people withdrawing from relationships and refusing new partnerships. This withdrawal will perpetuate feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness, and exacerbate the symptoms of depression.
WHAT CAUSES DEPRESSION?
Anxiety may be part of your life, but it’s not meant to dominate your day-to-day life. No one knows what triggers depression. In general, people believe depression is typically caused by the following common reasons:
- Genetic causes are strongly important in many forms of depression.
- The personality types of an individual are a significant aspect causing depression also. If people are unhappy, they typically have a very pessimistic view of themselves and of the environment.
- A stressful job or work environment can often cause depression such as, prolonged period of overtime, or long working hours.
- Another potential source of depression that can not be underestimated is physical illness or medical treatments causing all signs of depression.
