When someone tells you they are feeling depressed, do not tell them they have no reason to be. Honestly that person is most likely aware they are not reacting appropriately to what is happening in their life at that time, and that is why they are letting you know something is not right. Instead, offer them friendship and love. Just remind them that you are there no matter what because they will be blinded by depression. Even if you know that you are doing a lot for them, that person will have trouble seeing any help that they are receiving. If you are feeling depressed and you feel that its not validated, just remember that you are human and sometimes you just have to feel a certain way for a while. Just do your best to cut out the things in your life that are bringing you down and surround yourself with happier things. Remember that its going to take time and effort. Things will get better as long as you don’t give up.
