Depression is on the rise in our society. It is a serious condition that can invade every facet of life. It has been described as an “overwhelming emptiness,” a “heavy weight,” or even “the black dog” (to name a few). Those who suffer from it often struggle all alone, and find themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted.
Sadly, depression is often characterized as weakness or a character flaw to be overcome, rather than a mental illness that needs healing. People can tend to treat it casually, and the sufferer is told to just “get over it” or “be more positive,” but depression is a real condition that can often require real professional help to overcome.
