Depression hurts the lives of the depressed but also of those who love them...
If someone you love is hurting, what can you do? Not only must you take special care of them during this time, but you must also remember to care for yourself.

Caring for someone with depression can create an emotional strain affecting your relationship, your home atmosphere and even your work or career. Perhaps you may find yourself at the end of a rope not knowing how to cope yourself. You sometimes feel like walking away but even admitting this feels like you would betray them.
Yes, it is extremely important for your hurting loved one to talk, talk, talk things out through therapy but are you doing this too? You need someone to listen to you too. Who can you turn to? Don’t let this destroy you.
Remember to care of yourself along the way and guard your own thoughts. As your loved one expresses negativity, this can rub off on you. Then, you too can start to slip into a negative thinking pattern. You become what you think about.
What do I mean? Negative thinking produces negative results, a negative self-esteem, a negative outlook on life and soon you slip into depression.
