People experiencing depression have a hard enough time trying to let people into their lives. That’s because they don’t want someone else to see them at their worst. However, on the small chances that they let someone in, it can be a lot for that person to take in, and they choose to walk away.
That can be difficult for a depressed person to take, as they soon start to believe that everyone will eventually leave them. It also creates the false belief that their depression will only drive other people away and that it should be kept a secret from the world to want to be around them. However, it is essential to be cautious if you notice your loved ones are pushing people away because it is only further isolating themselves and increasing either sadness or unhappiness.
