depression about being single in a relationshipWhile being single may sound good, for others it is depressing. They are being consumed by feelings of loneliness, rejection, self-pity, and others. Having these feelings may sometimes lead to depression. They get depressed for being alone, living a life without a partner to talk to, to laugh with, to cuddle with, and a partner who can make them feel they are special.

Depression is often caused by too much loneliness. It is a medical disorder that affects the mind and body. Once a person is depressed because of a certain thing, he/ she cannot think well. The person finds it hard to make up his/ her mind. The body is affected also because that particular person becomes inactive in many things.

  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Feelings of rejection
  • Loss of interest in activities that they used to enjoy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sleep problems

Coping with Depression

Since the feeling of depression is already there, there’s nothing you can do but to deal with it. How can you cope with this? One great way of coping with it is through socialization. Interacting with people often lessens feelings of loneliness and depression. Attending social activities or gatherings can make you forget the loneliness and pain in your heart. Just try to enjoy whatever social events you attend. Another way to help a depressed person is to seek a professional help. Counseling may work for you. Give it a try. Furthermore, you also need to keep in mind that there’s nothing wrong with you. Keep positive thoughts in mind to help yourself recover from the loneliness and depression you feel.
