Today, the number of people suffering from depression is increasing significantly, and those who suffer from hidden depression are struggling with their inner demons, while those around them are completely unaware of it.
We have begun to suppress our feelings and problems instead of sharing them with our loved ones, which only exacerbates the problem.
However, everyone should be aware of the most common signs of hidden depression, so if you notice them in someone you know, it’s time to act and help:
They fail to calm their thoughts.
Their thoughts are fast, deep and analytical, so they have trouble calming down.
They hide their moods.
Depressed people are good at hiding their feelings, so their mood swings are rarely obvious, as they can easily fake them by smiling.
They are searching for meaning.
Depressives are anxiously searching for a purpose in life and are often obsessed with existential questions.
Irregular sleep patterns.
Depressed people often suffer from insomnia or spend all day sleeping.
They are pessimistic.
Intelligence often goes hand in hand with depression; depressed people are good at problem solving, but they tend to be pessimistic.
Problems with abandonment.
Depressed people often avoid getting close to other people for fear of being abandoned.
They try to help themselves.
They may try to cope with depression in their own way: walking in the park, exercising, writing or listening to music.
They like to talk about themselves.
Depressed people try to distract attention from their feelings, so they make up long excuses for even the most trivial things.
Calling for help.
If someone you know is constantly asking for help and seems weak, you need to talk to them and make a connection before you act and help.
Change eating habits.
Depression affects people’s eating habits, so they may start to overeat or lose their appetite.
Talented people need to express themselves
Many famous people suffer from latent depression because pain serves as fuel and inspiration.
