While no single case of depression is the same, we can all relate with some of these quotes. The feelings of loneliness, hopelessness, and deadening despair often become universal among those of us who battle depression.

If a friend opened up to you about having depression, there’s a good chance that these thoughts and feelings are similar to what they deal with on a regular basis. Please treat your loved ones carefully. Remind them that you love them and encourage them to keep going. The deeper their despair, the louder your love will have to yell to drown out the negativity screaming in their brain.
