Many people affirm suffering from depression; however, what is the difference between depression and sadness. According to Healthline article “Sadness is a human emotion that most people feel at a certain times during their life; in fact, that feeling sad my cause emotional upset or pain. In addition, there is many degree of sadness but they all occur in a relative short temporary period. Unlike sadness, depression is a longer-term mental illness.” (Whelan, 2016). Depression is higher, longest level of sadness accompanied with without will of solving problems. Depression is a worldwide problem where “Globally, more than 300 million people of all ages suffer from it.”(World health organization, 2018).
According to the same source (WHO), depression affect more women than men and it also affect teenagers from 18 to 25. It perfectly match my research; in fact, that most people that I interviewed were among this group. Depression may lead to many consequences such as Sadness, constant fatigue; Headaches but the most dangerous consequence remain suicide. “Over 50 percent of all people who die by suicide suffer from major depression. If one includes alcoholics who are depressed, this figure rises to over 75 percent.”(American Foundation for Suicide prevention, nd). This fact show how much suicide and depression are related. Nonetheless, what are the main causes of depression? According to the Magazine very well mind, the most 9 common of depression are: “Genetics and Biology, Brain Chemistry Imbalance, Female Sex Hormones, Circadian Rhythm Disturbance( For instance, the depression caused by winter and its cold), Poor Nutrition, Physical Health Problems, Drugs, Stress, Grief and Loss (When losing a loving person)”( Schimelpfening, 2019).

Changing your life style such as get healthier nutrition, sleep better; reduce the stress that you are fronting every day and finally workout.”(Saisan, 2019). Many of those arguments also did match with my research and the responses that my interviewees give.

However, it might take time and patience to get of it. As said by Steven Wright “Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm. (Wright, nd).
While researching and interviewing my interviewees, I did learn a lot about the subject; such as the real definition of depression that say that is sadness but longer and in a higher grade, or that it affect mostly teenagers between 18 and 25 and the ways that people deal with it. To tell the truth, I did pass a period of depression and I know what it feel like to be depressed. However, it is treatable.
