Did you know that depression is the most common condition the youth face? Well, now you know. A lot comes to mind with the mention of the word depression and most of which are questions. Although people who have not faced depression before might not quite understand what goes on in the mind of a depressed person or how depression comes in the first place, one might wonder what they can do to get rid of the condition or prevent it all the same.
The most common reason for depression is the pressures placed upon us by society. You might be struggling with school, marriage, relationships, parents and much more and the fact that the community requires you to be in a certain way or perform in a certain way doesn’t make it any better. This is where being selfish comes in. It’s okay to be selfish to protect yourself.
Failure is the most common reason why people decide to stay in unhappy situations which end up suffocating them and in return conditions such as depression, insomnia, and others crop up. You are allowed to be selfish sometimes, and knowing perfection is overrated help.
You should always push yourself as far as you can handle and not as far as anyone else thinks you should. Knowing that every person’s journey is different bits of help in getting through any situation and no matter the pressure that you receive from the second and third party, it is okay to think about yourself.
