Must Watch

I went through a lot for this marriage

You may find it even more difficult to deal with depression if your friends and family aren’t there for you. When someone close to you expresses indifference or blames you for your symptoms, it can exacerbate them. Even if it’s great to be surrounded by people who understand or are prepared to try to understand what you’re going through, this isn’t always achievable.
Realize and accept that not everyone will understand your point of view. Regardless of what you think, there may be a reason why they’re acting this way that has nothing to do with you. If they learned as children that showing evidence of mental health concerns or symptoms of mental illness are signs of “weakness,” it’s probable that this is an ingrained and subconscious tendency. It’s also possible that they’re older and come from a time when mental illness was more stigmatized than it is today. End of day, you must support yourself the most. Self-compassion requires practice, but it’s worth it in the long run. Make encouraging statements about oneself. If you are critical of yourself, your symptoms will only become worse. If your mind is constantly ruminating on the bad things that have happened to you, you may want to consider experimenting with new ways of thinking. See if you can find new ways to disrupt the pattern, such as changing your perspective from “I hate myself” to “I have depression and need to give myself compassion.” Depression is not a sign of laziness or weakness, no matter what anyone says. There are medicinal treatments for depression. There is no truth to the idea that you are seeking assistance solely to “gain attention.” With depression, the goal is to hold on as long as possible until things improve. When someone is being unsupportive, remind yourself of these facts and remind yourself of the truth. Friends and family members who are coping with their own mental health issues may be unable to provide you help. They may sympathize with your situation, but they lack the ability to help. This does not mean they don’t care about you; it simply means their internal resources are already exhausted by their own caregiving responsibilities, and they can’t help you. If you can, be understanding or even lend a hand to the person you’re talking to. Helping someone else can often make you feel better about yourself.
