According to a survey, it is assured that death due to depression is much more likely as compared to diabetes and blood pressure.

No one will understand the state of a depressed patient. It is assumed that it’s due to so many ups and downs of daily routines in life. When this patient goes to a doctor they label them as depressed.

It is essential for a patient to move out from this depressing situation. For all the seminars, teaching should be given, but they are only a temporary relief. To take a patient out of depression, it’s essential to understand his puzzled mind, which is only solved through love, care, and try to make himself happy.

The condition of a depressed man is much like the sun, which hides behind dark clouds. It is not permanent state of mind, because whenever these clouds scatter the sun will definitely shine. So, for a while it is essential to understand the condition of this person. Only through loving behavior of others, and within himself, will he feel long-term states of happiness. This will enable him to improve himself, instead of neglecting his depressive state.
