Although it is normal to feel blue occasionally, as a consequence of the trials and tribulations of our lives, when the blues don’t go away and start affecting how we feel about ourselves and how we transact in the world, it behooves us to consider the possibility that we may be becoming clinically depressed.
If this is the case, it’s best that we seek help sooner rather than later because the longer we wait, the more debilitating the depression can become, in terms of disrupting all aspects of our lives, including our health, livelihood and relationships. Additionally, the longer we wait, the harder it is to treat.
