Depression Quotes-Featured Image

Depression Quotes are for those who need someone to understand them without feeling judged. These quotes reflect emotions and that is why they are very capable of motivating you especially when you are feeling down.

Depression is very different from being sad. A person may become sad because of momentarily bad incidents. However, a depressed person considers himself isolated from the whole world. He or she thinks they are good for nothing. This way, they gradually lose themselves in their own webs of overthinking which can lead to short-term sadness or even depression. This all maybe because they are misunderstood and disheartened so deeply

Motivation can stem from the smallest things, such as Depression Quotes. Unfortunately, today’s era is full of people who always say things they don’t truly mean. They pretend to be well-wishers but their words and actions don’t add up at all. This is where a depressed person goes wrong. He or she must not bother about such people. They should look up to those people who help bring them up, not put them down.

I understand you have not chosen this disheartening state. But still, I believe you need to try your best to change your mindset. Consider it rather, you just need some rest and time to overcome your past failures.

Today, I want to share 39 Depression Quotes to capture your emotions and help to cheer you up. These quotes understand what you feel deep inside but at the same time, they are here to motivate you to conquer your present and future.

I hope these will not only help you but also provide you with the strength to help others.
