Habits of people with depression.


Habits of People With Depression

  1. “I sleep too much. I drop every habit I enjoy.”
  2. “I turn into a hermit. I just want to stay in my home. It’s my safe haven.”
  3. “I push people away.”
  4. “I cancel all my appointments with doctors.”
  5. “My taste in music changes when I’m having a significant struggle with depression.”
  6. “I start to eat less.”
  7. “I let the voice in my head run rampant and tell me I am not loved. I try and tell it to shut up once in a while.”

You never know what someone is going through.
