This is someone you love. Whether it be a sibling, parent, friend or partner...
This is someone you’d do anything for but their depression has put extreme strain on the relationship.
How many more events can you miss because “they didn’t feel like it”?
How many more mornings can you spend with them struggling to get out of bed?
You’re surely fed up with the daily self pity, the complaining and the thought of them batting away every positive thing you say?
This is someone who at first gave you everything you could imagine.
They made you happy, they made you feel alive but behind that ‘mask’ lay hidden secrets that would later resurface.
Has the relationship been a lie? Were they ever the person you once knew or were they always so unhappy and miserable?
That thought alone is something that hits you hard.
How long do you stick by them?
How do you best support them through their depression?
How do you make yourself feel good again?
I’m going to try and answer how to support someone with depression from my own personal experience, learning from the mistakes I made with my Dad. I'm hoping this helps, because it's important that we educate ourselves on depression and knowing how to support those who need the support.
