“Few decisions are as personal as whether to tell a loved one that you are suffering from major depression. “Telling someone about depression isn’t something that you should enter into lightly, but if you choose a person whom you can trust, it can be a positive experience,” Davis says.”
It is true, we all need support in dealing with depression and we’d all like to think that we would be able to find it. Friends and family could be a source of support and encouragement, but tread lightly. Placing trust in those who don’t deserve it can be quite damaging. In the end, just remember that no matter how that person responds, or doesn’t, you will continue to do what you need to do for yourself, and seek out support elsewhere!
