If you are not able to concentrate, or not enjoying the activities you used to love, or feeling worthless, helpless, self-hatred, you are having depression. Depression is common among teenagers. Many people do not realize they are having depression because most people only recognize the more extreme degrees of depression. It is very likely, however, that we all have experienced some form or another of low mood. Just like you, President Abraham Lincoln, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, famous writer Mary Shelley and many other notable historic figures had experienced depression in their lives. You are not alone. If you are feeling down, try exercising, eating fruits, chocolates, candies or ice cream. Listening to music might also help you feel better. Even if you do not want to talk to people, try participating in outdoor activities, or just simply having a walk. If you are in pain and feel like you cannot take it in anymore, do not try pain reliever. Do not ever let yourself think of hurting yourself because you know you are strong and that ending your life is not going to end the pain because your pain would spread to the lives of your loved ones. If you cannot find anybody to talk to when you are feeling painful and depressed, you can always call the National Runaway Switchboard. Talk to us! We are here to help.
