Being sad is terrible. You can feel hurt and upset for a particular reason. But depression is different. Depression is so consuming. It swallows you whole and makes you feel like nothing. Less than nothing. Like you are worth nothing to anyone and there is no point to getting out of bed. No point to doing anything you used to like.
You can be sad, cry, ball, and be devastated. But being depressed is something completely different.
With depression, you feel like you are a burden to everyone and maybe you deserve to feel that way. You don’t want to bother others with your presence. So many people isolate themselves because they don’t think that they deserve friends. And thats when someone with depression can become suicidal.
Yes being sad sucks, but it is not the same as being depressed.
