You’re tired of living sadness.
You know that it’s more than just occasional sadness. It’s the lack of motivation to do anything besides stay in bed. It’s the loss of interest in activities you used to love. Don’t forget about the intense emotions you feel to just about anything. It seems like no matter what you do, you can’t snap out of you. You’ve probably heard or been told before that “happiness is a choice.” Maybe you believed this. But now, it seems like that choice hasn’t been extended to you. Perhaps you’re thinking, what have I done wrong?
The answer is that you haven’t done anything wrong. You don’t have to live with this feeling.
Depression Counseling Can Help
If this situation sounds familiar, you could be experiencing symptoms of depression. Living with depression can be difficult. Often times, it feels exhausting to do anything. You wonder if the things that used to bring you joy will bring you joy again. Perhaps thinking that far ahead feels like it’s too much. Many times, it feels like the way you’re feeling will never be a thing of the past. You find yourself wondering if this is your ‘new normal.’ If so, there are going to be a lot of things you don’t enjoy. Luckily, depression counseling can help navigate the symptoms of depression you’ve been living with.
Symptoms of Depression
Since we all have unique experiences, we all react to situations differently. Experiencing symptoms of depression is no different. Through years of providing depression counseling, I have seen some common symptoms of depression. Here are some common symptoms of depression:
- Change in appetite
- Sleep disturbances
- Frequent crying, or frequently feeling like you’re on the verge of tears
- Difficulty feeling positive emotions
- Loss of interest in activities
- Lack of motivation or drive

What’s Holding You Back From Starting Depression Counseling?
You’ve come this far. And sure, maybe sometimes you feel okay. Sometimes, the depression creeps under the porch and we forget about it for a few days- sometimes even weeks.
