People think of depression as sadness, crying, and wearing black clothes. But people are wrong. Depression is a constant feeling of numbness. You wake up in the morning only to sleep. Constant feeling of fatigue. I believe that we are stuck in a very superficial generation where we post a picture on Instagram every day but don’t talk to our friends and loved ones for weeks because they are “busy”. As time went by, the differences between people increased. Research has shown that 1 out of 3 people of our generation are depressed, and to be honest, there is no specific reason for this, but there is a similar result – loneliness.
On social media forums, there are millions of posts and quotes about depression that paint almost every depressed person black and link it to a song by Lana Del Rey. But today we will break the stereotypes that have been created about depression. Today we bring you 11 amazing habits of depressed people.
1-They are talented and expressive creatures.
I’m not saying that boredom makes you talented. What I’m trying to say is that depressed people are very expressive when given the opportunity and freedom to fully express themselves in a certain area. The world has been blessed with some of the most beautiful gems like Jim Carrey, Robin Williams and Bill Hicks. It hurts to say that they were all soldiers fighting depression. Perhaps it helps them to feel things more deeply, which is depicted in their work.
2-Thinking is not an option for them.
Their minds are dirty places. They are constantly swimming in a pool of thoughts, and it just doesn’t stop. Whatever they did.
3-They have high defense mechanisms.
They built a wall for themselves so high that no one could touch it. Depressed people can hide anything. They are great at hiding their emotions.
4-They have a sense of purpose.
They ask everything and do their best to find answers. This often creates anxiety, but they also feel the need for knowledge.
5-They can take off their masks.
They are great at hiding their emotions. That’s what depression does to you. It forces you to wear a mask; But it will stick to your face. Masks sometimes last so long that they forget what they really look like.
6-They secretly cry for help.
We all need a shoulder to cry on sometimes. But for those who are depressed, the cry for help is very silent. They never ask for help, but they need it the most.
7-They don’t have a fixed bedtime.
They have very unusual sleeping patterns. Sometimes they stay in bed all day. And sometimes I don’t sleep for a week.
8- They have rejection problems.
They never fully believe someone when someone tells them to stay here. They are very emotionally insecure.
9-They have their own backs.
They solve their own problems without asking anyone for help. They have backs.
- They have strange eating habits.
They can go a whole day without food, but sometimes they don’t show up without food. It is said that your emotions influence your eating habits.
11-They are always ready for the worst.
They are ready for anything. But that doesn’t mean it’s less painful.
