Depression and Anxiety

Depression and anxiety are two mental conditions that constantly feed the mind with fear, nervousness, sadness, and other negative emotions that affect both the physical and emotional well-being, which can interfere with the normal daily functions of a person. Depression, also known as clinical depression or depressive disorder, affects a person’s mood, how they think, feel, and behave. People with this condition feel lonely, miserable, and unhappy without knowing the reasons why. On the other hand, while anxiety is part of people’s lives, severe cases involve intense panic and worry about normal day-to-day situations. The fears about certain places, situations, people, etc. will follow a person who has anxiety disorder. 

One cannot simply pull oneself together and successfully get rid of depression and anxiety. These conditions may need long-term treatments through psychotherapy.
