Depression doesn't need a trigger. It is scientific proven that depression can hit everybody for no reason. That's why I think people should be more supportive towards depressed people. People in my region are making fun of them and I am really disgusted by them.

It might be something that you don't realize yet. You might need to meditate a little bit in a quiet place with nothing to disturb you, think about everything that disturbed you lately, even if it is pretty small. You might find what generates the sadness or depression.

Depression can spring out of nowhere! Sometimes, one can fall into a deep depressed state without even seeing the warning signs, and that's a very normal situation. It can certainly happen without anything triggering this feeling, and I know it can be very confusing to understand.

I dont think we ever feel depressed out of nowhere somewhere deep inside us depression is lurking. It is up to us to find out where this depression stems from and how we can solve it. No one has to live with depression and there are so many resources out there to help. It is important that if you are experiencing depression to get the right help!

Depression come and go, it's not always a feeling that surround you all the time, it can be provoked by a lot of things, a song, a sight, someone who remember you someone else, ... The aim is to refrain you from being overwhelmed, go out for a walk, listen to a song you like, write down what makes you feel depressed, ... But don't let it settle down to deep in you :)

I'm sorry to hear you are feeling that way. Depressed feelings can come out of nowhere without any clear trigger, it tends to be caused by the chemical imbalance in your brain.

Depression is like a closed bottle, sometimes you get depressed, but you decide to ignore the situation till the bottle get filled and overflows so you start to feel the results of it. You breakdown which relief you a bit, but still doesn't solve the problem so the bottle get overflowed again and so on. Bottom line, always solve the problems and the causes and never ignore it or wait for it to go away by itself.

Depression can come from anywhere. All it takes is something to trigger and the bad feelings roll right in. Your mindset and environments can be direct triggers to why your depression might come from no where.

It is possible to feel depressed out of nowhere, we all have good and bad days. Don't worry about it happening every once in a while. If it starts to interfere with your day-to-day life, that is the point when help is needed.

Depression is caused by a chemical imbalance, and does not always require a painful experience for it to be triggered.

Maybe you have changed without realizing. Or there was a drastic moment in your life and you didn't know how to react.

Thats a GOOD question! You should sit down and really just ask yourself why is that. It probably is a reason but you haven't paid much attention to it. Try reevaluating your life and see if you can figure it out. If not maybe see a professional to make sure there isn't nothing wrong inside

Depression can sometimes come from out of no where. It's an illness, no different than a virus. It doesn't discriminate. You should consider seeking your doctor's advice and perhaps see if they can refer you to a mental health professional if it persists.
