When you have determined the fact that you are going through the signs and symptoms of depression, you need to know as to what is the next best thing to do. Because if you let those feelings go unnoticed, they are just going to grow and grow and will be taking all over you.
The best thing to do when you have determined that you are going through depression is that you must share your feelings with the ones who you trust. Those can be your parents, anyone in the siblings who you are close with, your friends, any one with whom you will be feeling comfortable to share your feelings with.
The most important thing to know is that you must talk and not isolate yourself, because if you are going to isolate yourself, you are going to try to fight it alone, and believe me it is not easy to fight the feelings of depression alone. You need to talk with someone because you will feel the weight being lifted off of your chest and you will get the smooth feeling inside you.
Even if you get that smooth feeling inside you for a few moments, it is going to be amazing because it is then that you would be starting to open yourself more and not let the bad feelings grow inside you and let them out. What you need is a vent out of the feelings, so that you are able to feel yourself again.
Do not get me wrong, but you will see that when you will start to open up, you will feel much much better than you had been and once you have crossed that barrier of not sharing to sharing, you must not go back in your shell and keep sharing things that grow inside of you, because this is going to save you come out of the feelings you are in and in a matter of days you will be in the moment of clarity, which will pull you out of what you are in now.
