Lots of people feel depression even though their life is really going well at the moment. Your brain doesn't care really that it's all going well and this sort of stuff happens a lot. If your state isn't getting any better then you may need to see a professional or talk to one online

I occasionally have the same thing happen to me. I have learned that it normally is caused by something in my life that is upsetting me but I am pushing it down and trying to ignore it.

Depression doesn't have to have a cause. Sometimes you can feel depressed for absolutely no reason. It's completely fine. Just keep working through it.

We are all human, and I can't count the number of times I felt at my lowest when there was nothing close to low going on in my life. Or, at least, I thought there was nothing wrong going on. It really took me a while to look inside and find myself to really understand what was going on. I told myself, "I will look at my life and figure out what is going on. If I can, I will try my best to really overcome that problem to hopefully deal with it. If I can't or I can't overcome, I will talk to a mental health professional and see if they can help me instead." Either way, I knew I wasn't alone and that I could overcome this problem; whether it was from within me or from external resources.
