Depression isn’t when someone feels sad, just for some time,
It isn’t when someone doesn’t feel like talking,
Depression is like a bruise that never goes away,
A bruise in your mind,
You just have to be careful not to touch it where it hurts.
It’s always here, though.
Depression is a medical condition in which people feel very sad, annoyed, and anxious at a time.
Try to care, try to feel, and try to ask about other people’s feelings.
