People think of depression as sadness, crying, and wearing black clothes. But people are wrong. Depression is a constant feeling of numbness. In the morning you wake up only to sleep. Constant feeling of fatigue. I believe we are stuck in a very superficial generation that posts pictures on Instagram every day but doesn’t talk to our friends and family for weeks because they are “busy.” Over time, the differences between people have widened. Studies have shown that one in three people in our generation are depressed, and to be honest, there is no specific reason for this, but there is a similar result: loneliness.
There are millions of posts and quotes on social media forums about depression that almost all describe depressed people as black and link them to a Lana Del Rey song.

We all need a shoulder to cry on sometimes. But for those who are depressed, the cry for help is very silent. They never ask for help, but they need it the most.
