Depression can mean different things, depending on the situation. Depression comes in a lot of forms, and it varies in different meanings.
Generally it is the same for everyone but people show it differently and it affects them differently, so it looks different.
Depression comes in various forms, which is why there isn't one single way to treat, or even 'cure' it. So, as with any situation, it's important to focus on the individual suffering from depression themselves, and find specific ways to help that are in their best interest.
Depression has many common symptoms but it affects each person differently! What is the same for everyone is that it is a feeling that no one ever wants!
No! Depression can be different for everyone. It causes the same moods and feelings but can affect everyone in a different way.
Depression is the same for certain people, though usually it depends on why it's caused. For example someone may be depressed over a breakup, while someone else maybe depressed over family stress.
The basics like : being tired, no energy, no healthy sleeping schedule, etc are most of the time the same. But how you feel and how you handle things are different with every person.
I think this is an interesting question because the experience of depression is different for everyone but it's got a common element of pain. Pain is relative, and our perception of that pain alters the way we feel it, see it, acknowledge it, understand it, process it, and act on it. The experience is different for everyone because it's so unique to our lives, it reflects the pain that we've experienced and the fear we feed it. The experience of depression is different for everyone, but pain is a fundamental, and key element to its commonality.
Depression, just like any other mental illness, is never the same for everyone. The way we deal with issues and emotions is a big part of your personality. We all struggle in different ways. At the end of the day, it's not about the feeling itself, but about how it affects the person.
It can be very different. In my case I am usually able to throw on a smile and pretend everything is okay (which is not something you should do, if you are depressed tell someone and get help) but in others they could not get out of bed for days or be very distant but still do things. It also doesn't feel the same for everyone. Some people with depression are sad, some don't feel anything and some just feel lonely. It all depends on who you are and your surroundings.
in principle depression is a feeling can reach anyone, but it may come in different levels for different people. it mainly depends on the personal situation, and the surrounding environment.
I believe it is different for everyone, each person experiences it in alternate levels depending on their type of issue. This meaning, everyone is treated in a different way, what works for one may not for the other.
Depression...... Of course it can be different .... Because everyone has different cause so then they have different kind of depression ....
It causes are different for each other. But it's symptoms are same, and so does the environment around us.
I can't directly speak for everybody but depression is a chemical imbalance and so the biology is the same but people handle it very differently and some peoples imbalances are more severe than others.
“Some people live as though they are already dead. There are people moving around us who are consumed by their past, terrified of their future, and stuck in their anger and jealousy. They are not alive; they are just walking corpses.”
The way different people experience depression will be different for everyone as you are all in different situations with different brains and different emotions, essentially different people. There are some basic symptoms doctors and other professionals will look for but even those will be experienced differently by different people.
Depression comes in many different forms. It all depends on how the person thinks, feels, and reacts.
I believe depression can have many different levels depending on the level of stress the person is going through
Depression can vary from person to person, some may feel it all the time whereas others can have it time to time based upon their situation. You feel the same way but some people feel a higher/ stronger depression than others.
Psychologists say men and women show different symptoms. For instance men tend to be more irritable when they're depressed but women tend to show signs of indifference.
It can definitely be different for everyone. Some people that have depression find it crippling and unbearable, while others find it a nuisance at worst. Everyone has a different cause of their depression, and therefore treatment is different for everyone. Some find therapy helps, while others benefit from medications. Most people find an effective balance between therapy and medications can lift their depressive symptoms enough to live normal happy lives.
It's different from everyone because different things may lead different people to depression
it can definitely be different for different people. Yes, there are certain things professionals look for but it can be different!
depression is different for everyone. everyones story is different therefore the thing that triggered the depression would be different and the way they cope with it or see their life would be another perspective to an other. some feelings and/or symptoms of depression could be the same
It is different for everyone beacause we are all different people. Depression is something really personal and the feelings are maybe kinda of the same for someone buthey can be totally different for others. It's all relative.
Depression affects everyone the same in the way that it makes everyone down and sometimes even suicidal, but the effects of depression can be very different, there are people who have loud, explosive, angry depressive episodes, and others with soft, crying depressive ones. It varies.
It can be different. Nobody feels anything the same way as other people. For me it might be crying at night. For you it might be just feeling empty inside if that makes sense.
It can always be different. Everyone is unique in a special way and so will be their depression. Some things will be the same while others will be different.
Depression is different for every person. Just like any other emotion, people sense things differently.
