People feel sad or depressed at times, especially when they face severe personal issues. Family conflict, losses, financial constraint, and intense competition are some of the reason that led people to feel depressed.
Sadness is a normal reaction to a life's struggles. However, when the feeling is so intense and includes helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness, which lasts for several weeks and hinder you from living your life, it may be a sign of severe depression.
Medication may help to balance the neurotransmitters that affect mood and emotions. But beyond medicine, it is helpful to have a counsellor to process and journey with you towards recovery. The objective of therapy is to uncover the root cause, process the issues and help you to overcome the depression.
