I know how difficult can be when you’re dealing with everything that’s going in your life and top of it feeling depressed, I mean, I get it, life is hard and seems to be getting harder everyday, but it is even harder if we see it through the lens of depression, anxiety, and sadness.
When you don’t have any reason, like a big trauma, or the loss of someone close to you it is common to have this question, and having the feeling of sadness for these particular reasons is common too, even healthy. But what is not healthy is to have this intermittent feeling of depression that comes and goes when least expected…
So Why I’m Feeling Depressed You Ask?
The main cause of depression in a teenager may vary, but neither you, I or a specialist can’t answer that particular question because no one really knows what is the real cause of depression. What I can do is giving you the main causes of depression, in that way you will be better equipped to answer it by yourself.
Main Causes of Depression
* Genetics. It is depression common in the branches of your genealogical tree?
* Some illnesses. Depression can be sparkled in our lives by another completely different medical condition.
* Abuse. Sexual abuse is the most known, but also physical and emotional abuse in the past can develop depression sometime in the future.
* Death. Fear of our own dead, dead or loss of someone we love is a well-established factor for being depressed.
* Drugs. Not just the abuse of the illegal drugs, but some medicaments “legal drugs” can increase the chances of developing depression for a period of time.
* Being Excluded. By being excluded from our family, being fired, getting divorced. I mean losing or not getting into something that we care can be really painful.
* Low Self-Confidence. Carrying a low way of thinking about yourself will eventually lead you straight away to the path of the most high-quality feeling of depression.
Maybe you can argue with me if I’m right with the last one that it’s a vicious cycle. You could be depressed and then develop low self-confidence or by having low self-confidence we could be inviting depression to come into our mind and soul.
You could develop depression for one of these particular causes or a mix of them. When you identify the root cause of why you’re feeling this way you’ll hopefully know what action to take in order to stop feeling depressed because the solution will unfold naturally to you.
In the near future, I’ll be talking more in-depth about why depression appears as an uninvited guest in our lives so stay tuned.
