    Thank you for this post, I really needed it today. I uprooted my life just over a month ago to be with my partner. I moved cities not knowing anyone, no job lined up and to add to that my partner is in the army, so he has been away on an exercise for a month. I have had job rejection after job rejection and my inability to find work, generate income, pay my way and make friends has brought me to the lowest point of my life.

    When you’re in it, coming in from doing the grocery shop to an empty house that isn’t your own yet, can be debilitating. I spent over an hour just sobbing in the dark. Allowing myself to feel these feelings and pour out my emotions meant that I could eventually pick myself up off of the floor and run a bath as a form of self care.

    Thank you for stating that it’s ok to just sit on the couch (or my case in bed) and watch entire seasons of shows (13 reasons why might not have been such a good choice!) just to have a distraction. I really appreciate the highlighting of mental illness you continue to do and just know that it’s helping some of us :)

    This is such a great post. I think that we all at some time in our life feel depressed but we all feel it in different ways. Whenever I start to feel down I like to take a long walk in the nature or just take few deep breaths to clear out my mind. x

    Indeed, to overcome depression at an early stage it needs to recognize its symptoms such as sadness, weakness, fear, sleep disorder etc. There are a lot of signs of depression, but you may not have them all. How intense they are, and how long they last, are different from person to person. To cope with depression, you need to first determine its type.The process may take a long time and efforts. Needless to say that it’s worth it. Anyone wants to be happy.
    Be calm!

    Thank you so much for talking about how people around you can help a lot when dealing with depression as well as having a sense of belonging. I can see that taking the time to properly research all the resources available can help anyone find the best help and counseling available in their area.
