Many people are confusing depression with sadness. Sadness is a normal state that is an essential part of life. End of close relationships. Death steals those who are loved. Life gives us plenty of reasons for get depressed.
At these times feeling sad is appropriate — and indispensable. The essential part of what it means to be human is the need to weep, to experience sorrow. This offers us vital space for self-reflection, and deeper empathy and compassion as we respect grief. It can also push us to accept realities that are challenging or motivate us to make better choices.
Nevertheless, depression gives little relief it attacks us brutally and encourages desperation. That is because sorrow is not a sense of culpability; it is an attempt to avoid a complex unwanted combination. Anger, anger, annoyance and sadness are unbearable emotions for us.
When we’re sad, we wage a psychological war to stamp these unwelcome thoughts out Common psychological protections against unpleasant stimuli include negation (ignorance of feelings), diffusion (transmission of feeling to others), rationalization (playing down feelings) or binge eating.
Sadly, it will come back again and again, as long as the real causes of our sadness remain untouched.
