“I am bent, but not broken. I am scarred, but not disfigured. I am sad, but not hopeless. I am tired, but not powerless. I am angry, but not bitter. I am depressed, but not giving up.”

Depression is more than just a low or bad mood and is a common problem faced by all classes of population irrespective of age and gender. I Myself has waged a war against pregnancy related depression 11 years ago,I am sharing some tips to handle depression.

Depression is a very common mental illness, the symptoms of which include wanting to be alone, tendency towards emotional outbursts and weeping, irritability, mood swings, loss of appetite or increased appetite, etc.

There are several factors which can lead to depression,
 and there may be any number of reasons which can cause depression in an individual.

Treatment

Most people suffering from depression are prescribed antidepressant drugs, and in the long run, these people get dependent on the drugs and find it difficult to leave them. While some people prefer medications and psychotherapy, many others consult psychiatrists, psychologists or other mental health professionals over several sessions. Regular exercise and right food does help beat depression to an extent.

Never lose hope in your ability to fight depression. I know that it is easier said than done, but the truth is that it is not impossible. When I realized that I was falling into the clutches of depression, I pushed myself to come out of that situation, to fight the internal and external circumstances that were hindering my efforts at happiness.

Change is the thumb rule of life, and a positive attitude makes a lot of difference. Start with developing positivity in the little things you do, and sustain the effort. Slowly but steadily, it will build towards change. Today, looking back at how I was then, and looking at how I am now, I feel a sense of relief and pride for having waged the personal war on depression. Remember that ultimately, it’s you who can help yourself.
