Causes of depression
The causes of depression are more than we think and the worst part is that we are not even aware of some of them. Some of them are work-related while others are social. Things don’t go as well as we expect them to go, but we choose the wrong approach on how to go about our disappointments and failures. We tend to keep them all bottled up with the hope that we’ll be successful in solving our issues on our own.
Some medications that we take have the depression effect on us. Some of them are prescribed to us for medical reasons while others are taken without the doctor’s consent. The ingredients in these medications react differently with our bodies and depression takes its toll on us.
Loss of a loved one
The death of a loved one is another common cause of depression. The more we think of the sad fact of never seeing them again plunges us deeper into the horrible pits of depression. Depression from this episode varies from person to person. Others will be depressed for a few weeks while others will succumb to depression for the better part of their lives.
